I have mixed feelings about this one….If I were a flight attendant who got laid off with no notice and no compensation, I would definitely demand some kind of restitution. But since when is it the government’s job to bail out commercial industries? Airlines aren’t federally funded (or are they?); if Dubya is gonna pump money into them, I think it’s only fair that he do the same for grocery store cashiers, sanitation workers, and other American workers who have faced sudden job termination. Who is to say which jobs are more valuable?
