US airline workers lose jobs after stimulus failure

Tens of thousands of airlines workers are out of a job in the United States after Congress failed to reach a last-minute stimulus deal. As many as 50,000 aviation staff face an uncertain future as the travel industry continues to be hit by the coronavirus pandemic. It is estimated that air travel is down 70 percent and may take years to recover.

    Giving money to banks, businesses, is not economy moving flow. That money cant be spent on individual goods and services. Most of ppp money is sitting in bank coffers.

    The individual consumer, is the one need the stimulus, so it can buy and move units.

    O well…. let it crash.

    They want sympathy for the industry that facilitated the spread of the virus? Not from me! Who goes around the world in 201920 to study , take a trip for a week for a " holiday " , or business trip in the age of the internet! This was a long time coming! Covid is bad, but not as bad as something that kills at the rate of Ebola and spreads as fast as covid got loose! We are getting off with a warning!

    Private industry please stop taking tax payer money to prop up your capitalist companies. If you want to know how to say your jobs vote democrat, raise taxes, stop paying out dividends, and sale your company to the American people. We seem to pay most of the bills anyways. One last thing START PAYING YOUR TAXES

    Bailout will not solve the problem , bankruptcy will . Years of buy back policies on their shares , multimillion salaries for their top management just the tip of the iceberg what is wrong with airline industry .
