If labels are meaningless, then all things are equal eh?
If that's true then why didn't I make more than $20,000 in a year to operate a jet at the same speeds and altitudes as Doug, and in fact in the same airspace with the same amount of responsibility where it concerns the results of our mistakes?
Labels are needed so we know what we're working with. My job as an RJ driver is the exact same job as Doug's job when he was a domestic FO, but didn't have the pay, work rules or stability of his gig. If the job is the same, then it must be obvious that we work in a different segment of the industry.
And low and behold, he worked at a legacy, and I worked at a regional. Labels are accurate in this discussion.
