I have had the privilege of being part of the SWA family for the past 14 months. I knew what the starting salary was when I was offered the position as a CSA, and the acceptance of the position meant I was willing to work for the money offered. If so many long-time SWA employees are truly unhappy with their pay, we must wonder why they stay with SWA. This is not indentured servitude. . .could they be staying for the benefits. . .such as the 401K match that is very high, the chances given to employees to move about the company and grow within the company professionally? When you wake up in the morning and grimace about the idea of having to go to work, then isn't it time to find a new job? Having worked for another carrier for almost a decade, to only be told my position was being outsourced, I cannot agree that SWA does not stand up for their employees. That's just the opinion of one CSA who likes what I do every day, and finds something good everyday in what I do. Yes, it would be nice to be paid more. That's what the union and negotiations are all about. For now, add up all the benefits and perks and ask yourself again, why are you staying a SWA employee if you are so very unhappy?
