British Airways Asks Employees To Work Without Pay For One Month

British Airways LogoCould you go without two paychecks and still survive?  I couldn’t.

…But British Airways, after posting last month a record annual loss of $656 million, has asked thousands of it’s staff to take unpaid leave for one to four weeks, but with the option of working during this period.

(Something tells me that if you care about your job, you’re going to work during your “leave.”)

The unpaid leave is not ordered but I still think it’s going to piss off a lot of people; a union rep already said that the policy is blatantly out of touch with the financial situation of the average individual.
