AMR’s Tom Horton to AMR’s pilots: be grateful

Our mother always told us that we should be grateful, either for the roof over our head or the vegetables on our plate. She probably would have felt that same


way about employment. Too bad she didn’t know Tom Horton, the chief financial officer of American Airlines parent AMR Corp. Horton was at the JP Morgan investor conference where people in the audience asked about labor negotiations.

They were especially worried about American and the Allied Pilots Association, where talks have at best been real unfriendly and real slow. Horton responded, “In a world where lots of people are losing their jobs and benefits, and the world looks pretty dark, well I’ll just speak for myself, I feel pretty good to have a job.”

Horton (at the right) continued, “And I think lots of people at American images.jpgfeel this way. These are good jobs, they pay a


lot, they have good benefits, they have pensions. I think a lot of people in the country feel that way about their jobs right now.” So, boss, if you’re reading, yes, we are grateful. And because they won’t let us anywhere near the cockpit of a plane, you should be, too.

    I really like the style of the website. I had a peek at your source code, hope you don’t mind, to check what theme you are using. Is it it a no cost theme or do I have to purchase it?
