Qantas 'stands down' 20,000 workers

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

"Qantas and Jetstar have announced that two-thirds of their 30,000 employees will be temporarily stood down from late March until at least the end of May.

"The group will also suspend all international flights, after the Federal Government told all Australians to avoid international travel.

""The efforts to contain the spread of coronavirus have led to a huge drop in travel demand, the likes of which we have never seen before," Qantas CEO Alan Joyce said."

Ohh boo ****ing hoo. 
The Federal Government offered them precisely what they wanted except the price was a seat at the table. 
The Queensland Government offered them 200 million to stay in QLD. 
The NSW Govenmrnt offered (IIRC) 300 million to move to NSW. 

All offers rejected. 
So sod them.

A bit sad with all the job losses. They'll just re-fly under another brand name minus the debt and a reduced workforce.
