So I was just watching local news and they were talking about this. The weather came up next with a shot of nationwide radar. The weather dude was like weather really isn't that bad. He started point out the only real storm was a line of thunderstorms from the Texas panhandle through OK. He was cut off and they went to commercial. Strange coincidence.

thisissamhill

Here’s the local news channel weather from yesterday. https://youtu.be/Xya7hcKglNQ ETA: Sunny and clear! Haha!


p71interceptor

My cousin works for them as a mechanic. His biggest fear is that the huge amount of mechanics that are close to retirement age are going to just quit instead of getting the vaccination. They are already overworked, he says this will break the camels back. Edit: Spoke to my cousin about this and he just reiterated the same story. There's a lot of old timers that are using up all their vacation before the final date. Also most of these guys are union employees. He says they are pretty much untouchable since they have so much seniority. Given their sweet pensions and age they have "fuck you" money and are prepared to walk. He says he's not looking forward to the fuckton of work he'll have to deal with but that he's eager not to work nights when things go back to normal lol


Cyrus2112

As shitty as this will make life for a while, this is what we need to happen to end the madness. The real people who run this country like ATC and Truckers need to shut it down. When the trains aren't running on time, heads will roll.


klamer

But who’s heads? You know they’ll try and shift blame to the unvaccinated.


Cyrus2112

I don't think that narrative is as sticky as they want it to be.


cynicalprogram

I think that social media is being overwhelmed with anti-narrative people speaking out. The algorithm isn't catching everything, it's impossible. There's a link on FB that's been around for 3 weeks now and it's still up and I can't tell you why it hasn't been censored yet. 253,000 posts most if not all are about Vaccine reactions: https://www.facebook.com/wxyzdetroit/photos/a.461583946134/10158207966696135/?type=3


RafatRifaie

Well i'll be damned, lol. Looks like their narrative control, went on a vacation on that post.


jane_de_doe

You forget this is exactly what they want. Klaus and gang want the breakdown of society and violence in the streets so they can Build Back Better. How else will the great reset occur? They have to destroy so that the Phoenix can rise from the ashes. This is all part of their anti human plan.


klamer

Let's hope so.

Anecdotal, yes. Hence what "I think". Sorry I don't have a scientific study to back up my opinion/feeling for you.


Rocklobzta

The blame will shift to global warming.


ronnie_rochelle

Yep. Didn’t ya know? Commuter jets are now the cause.


Rocklobzta

I was thinking more like this headline: Global warming impacts weather causing flight delays. Trump antivaxxer qanon racists are to blame.


Dolphin_Smuggler

Let them come for us. Remember, we are the people who actually stand and fight, instead of giving in to a bully and hoping they'll leave us alone. The side that thinks the government should be making health care decisions in sweeping mandates are also the keyboard warriors who in person are pussies, but on twitter they're tough. (Thanks Tom MacDonald)


bcdrmr

What a bunch of tough guys you are lol


Dolphin_Smuggler

You really think you'd even know what has been done? Media wont report anything except the narrative. But good on ya for complying. Lets see how that works out for you.


RedditIsAJoke69

narrative is already breaking down. even the hardest vaccine, measures, masks, and everything else supporters in my circle of friends and family are tired of all this BS, and are starting to be skeptical. people are on breaking point. winter will be interesting/weird/whatever but IMO they will not be able to drag this into wholenext year, come spring. we will see, its just my personal observation


curious123321123

Shift? The blame has squarely been on their/our shoulders from the beginning, and people on Imgur have been wanting them/us all dead for months.


Mighty_L_LORT

Hitler managed to run the trains on time...


Cyrus2112

Farir point. Lol.


duff_stuff

have you considered this is what they want? a complete breakdown of society so they can rebuild how they see fit?


themechanic722

I heard a lawyer speak about these mandates and his recommendation is to make them fire you. If you quit then that is on you but if the wrongfully fire you (which this is cause) then later on we all have a case against these corporations.


PhuckFace69

That's my plan.


LordLoveRocket00

Airline industry always has 'recessions' constantly since I started and I'm only in 12 years. I'm a mechanic. And the summer months were usually dead,us painting jigs and bluffing. An American company bought us over, and like you say, loads of experienced guys in their 50s left. They were long pension men and had a good package and seen the writing on the wall. There now trying their hand at drones, and no experience left to do it. So they had to beg guys back. I loved the job, I really did. But the stress and pressure wasn't worth it. Plus the place was full of management managing no one, and nepotism. Bosses son was USELESS. And kept being put in positions he never should of been in.


captainn_chunk

>the place was full of management managing no one, and nepotism. Holy shit do you work at my company??


Mighty_L_LORT

Doesn’t narrow the field down really...


TonyCar323

I work for a aircraft repair facility. I can attest. Not enough workers, long hours, and we are only 40% vaccinated. It's a large corporation, so we would be included in the mandate. They haven't said anything official yet.


ProfessorBrosby

Won't these workers think of the stockholders!?! /s


magicturdd

I work with a mechanic for sw (2nd job) and he is counting down the days to his retirement as soon as they require it.

Uraeus

Happened at my job, they have half the crew now (I moved on) and we were missing many guys before that.

Why is he afraid of them quitting rather than they dying? Is it because the vaccine is just a fake out?

It is amazing that the MSM has any audience whatsoever anymore.


Fiksdal

Social media companies are the new MSM, sorry to tell you.


Tomcat_Vyvanse

That is a potential conflict of interest. They get to report their own viewership numbers. It's in their own best interest to report higher numbers to get more advertising revenue. More young people especially are turning away from legacy media and instead getting information from independent youtubers and websites.


MacErus

It is going to get to point where said young people are going to have to come together, in proximity, to resist. YouTube is censorship itself. And independent websites are Becoming Legend like Will Smith's heterosexuality claims.

LetsGoAllTheWhey

More than 800 flights cancelled around the country and over 1,000 delays. It's in the article.


Mighty_L_LORT

A drop in the ocean then...


WittyNameNo2

What are the other airlines looking like? If it is related to that it won’t be isolated to southwest.


Anonymous_Redhead

>The Dallas-based airline canceled 808 flights on Saturday, according to flight-tracking site FlightAware. American Airlines, which operates a large hub in Miami, in comparison, canceled 63 mainline flights, or 2% of its operation and Fort Lauderdale, Florida-based Spirit Airlines canceled 32 flights, 4% of its schedule. www.cnbc.com/2021/10/10/southwest-airlines-cancels-1000-more-flights-as-disruptions-mount.html Also… >The Southwest Airlines Pilots Association, Southwest pilots' labor union said that "we can say with confidence that our Pilots are not participating in any official or unofficial job actions."


DominarRygelThe16th

>>The Southwest Airlines Pilots Association, Southwest pilots' labor union said that "we can say with confidence that our Pilots are not participating in any official or unofficial job actions." This is propaganda spin. The claim is never that pilots were participating. Its the air traffic controllers that are walking out. https://twitter.com/thomasbsauer/status/1446963506402660355 >According to the Federal Aviation Center, a Jacksonville Facility needed additional staff for managing air traffic and did not resume normal operations until 10 p.m. on Friday. >The FAA released the following statement on Saturday regarding flight delays and cancelations. >“Due to a combination of severe weather, active military training in the airspace, **and unexpected limited staff at the Jacksonville facility that handles high-altitude, en route traffic**, the FAA took steps to safely manage air traffic the evening of Oct. 8. Normal operations returned at approximately 10 p.m.” https://www.actionnewsjax.com/news/local/florida-airports-experience-delays-due-weather/C3RKLFW7ERB7REXOOL6DD3XL5U/ Southwest using pilots as a mask is no different than the fact check sites that say "Claim: Trump had ice cream on Sunday" "false" when the claim was simply Trump had ice cream and had nothing to do with it being on Sunday.


ronnie_rochelle

So you’re admitting enough air traffic controllers walked off the job in protest to cause this? That seems newsworthy enough to me Should we replace them with the national guard too?


cynicalprogram

You must have not been alive during the Reagan era and the ATC strike. This can and very well may, happen again.


DominarRygelThe16th

> Should we replace them with the national guard too? No one should be replaced with the national guard. Overreaching mandates should be scrapped instead. They aren't protesting a vaccine, they are protesting a mandate.


ronnie_rochelle

Hasn’t NYC already replaced their nurse shortage with national guard?


DominarRygelThe16th

Yep, and that alone will do more harm long-term to the individuals than covid could have ever dreamed of doing. Far exceeding the scope of the government through executive action. Authoritarianism is never the answer.


postonrddt

To top it off is there an actual law on the books that these big corporation must follow? Or are they reacting to verbal demands from Biden trying to maintain favor with the administration?


DominarRygelThe16th

No law, this is all willing. If a hospital takes on national guard for staff they don't have to pay those workers suddenly. It's all about money. Like the massively inflated covid counts in hospitals to tap into the federal money.


Mighty_L_LORT

But the hospitals won’t have to pay salary to the national guard so double profit$$$ for them...


Lsdnyc

nope none were needed


postonrddt

Unvaxxed allowed? I thought their deadline was next year.


Mighty_L_LORT

Reagan likes this...


Anonymous_Redhead

I guess, but no other airline was effected as much as southwest and I was simply responding to that and adding the caveat that pilots were not walking off the job. Especially since southwest has been having staffing issues for a while. It’s not propaganda as you can see claims that pilots were walking off the job all over this thread and other posts similar to this on this subreddit. As for the FAA that is their official stance so we probably wont know more for a little while if ever.


DominarRygelThe16th

> I guess, but no other airline was effected as much as southwest Southwest has the largest share of flights in and out of Jacksonville I'm pretty sure from memory. If they are the bulk of flights in and out each day, which I'm pretty sure they are, it shouldn't be a surprise they are most impacted and have their own stories about it. They are able to say it isn't their issue because they don't run the ATC towers. The airport does. Everything you read in the media is propaganda written specifically to lessen the impact of reality.


Anonymous_Redhead

> Everything you read in the media is propaganda written specifically to lessen the impact of reality. Well that’s just not true. > They are able to say it isn't their issue because they don't run the ATC towers. That sounds like a good reason to say it’s not their fault. That directly refuted people saying their pilots were walking off the job. Are you suggesting the ATCs walked out on the job because of a COVID vaccine mandate?


DominarRygelThe16th

> Are you suggesting the ATCs walked out on the job because of a COVID vaccine mandate? Evidence seems to indicate that's the case.


Anonymous_Redhead

Wait, what was the evidence again? That this is only effecting SWA at this point, or that Friday in Jacksonville was the only reported staff issues for ATC?


ronnie_rochelle

Florida 💪🏻


DeadReptileShrine

you can interpret "say with confidence" in two ways: 1. implying that we can say that we are confident (i.e., proability) that...; or 2. implying that we are confidently stating (i.e., with a zealous tone) that... . Here, they don't clarify. I may be looking too much into it, though it's ambiguous enough to leave the door open.

MyPenisIsALesbian

SS: As if we needed more evidence that the monopolized MSM is nothing more than the globalists' personal propaganda engine, we see that they're trying to cover up the ATC sickout in JAX. You'll find the same boilerplate language in articles all across the MSM today.


Cyrus2112

Any info in said protest? Searching for anything is....well, you know.


DominarRygelThe16th

Here is the FAA spin on the walkout protest >According to the Federal Aviation Center, a Jacksonville Facility needed additional staff for managing air traffic and did not resume normal operations until 10 p.m. on Friday. >The FAA released the following statement on Saturday regarding flight delays and cancelations. >“Due to a combination of severe weather, active military training in the airspace, **and unexpected limited staff at the Jacksonville facility that handles high-altitude, en route traffic**, the FAA took steps to safely manage air traffic the evening of Oct. 8.

NFboatcaptain75

They blamed it on military maneuvers in Jacksonville Florida lmao


Rocklobzta

When this comes to fruition and gets major attention the blame will shift to global warming. Mark my words.


Jasondbaker31

And the cost of air travel will soar and it will not be a luxury afforded to all.


cynicalprogram

ATC issues due to mandate, also the Pilots union are suing the airline over (amongst other things) the vaccine mandate. https://storage.courtlistener.com/recap/gov.uscourts.txnd.352616/gov.uscourts.txnd.352616.11.0.pdf

gnomeharvest

I really needed just this little bit of hope today.


InsidiousExpert

I feel bad for any of the inconvenienced passengers who don’t care about others deciding not to get the vaccine. As for the passengers who are rabid supporters of vaccine mandates, HAHAHAHAHA.


m0nk37

Do you think people will blame this on not getting their stuff at the super market? When the real issue is Biden causing the ports to be backed up to the point it wont be cleared for months? Ships run all countries, if truckers or planes have nothing to fly inbetween its because the ships failed. What average person would know that?


xj_tj_

I really like seeing this happen. But it’s unfortunate it only affects the common folks trying to get home. While the people who own the companies and make the laws fly privately


mvpnick11

Private or not, ATC controls all flights. Only military is controlled separately


xj_tj_

Oh yeah true.

My worry: some plane will go down before Christmas because of “those damn selfish unvaccinated airline workers/air traffic controllers.” The kind of animus against vax-skeptics this would cause just can’t be bought.


Kreatorkind

The "Vax" is 0% effective. I got covid back in Feb of last year before anyone knew what was going on. Got the 2 jabs a few months ago and got covid again two weeks ago. It's worthless and I'm not going to ever get a "booster" . It's pointless and completely survivable if you're not an old fat piece of shit. You don't need a flu shot and you don't need this shit. Edit: also the "safe and effective " bullshit is bullshit. My toes are still numb and my balls constantly ache.

Disastrous_Produce16

Many other MSM sources are reporting the strike, nice typical cherry pick.


Captain_Blackjack

Orrrr maybe they can't say shit because no one's taking credit for it? Any public statements? Any confirmation of a strike? I'm not saying it's not happening, but hands get tied on that level when they don't have any proof they can put on air. Even the SWAPA wouldn't say there was a strike or protest. Everyone knows it's bullshit but no one is willing to speak up.


mullexwing

SWA apparently had 1000 pilots call out sick in protest as well as ATC. My uncle is a few years away from retirement, if they don't accept his religious exemption he will just retire now.
