I Thought Southwest Airlines Was a Cut Above
It is apparent that Southwest Airlines, along with others, are outsourcing some of their maintenance work to Central America. I did not know this, but there are news articles from as far back as 2008 reporting on this. Does this compromise safety? Possibly. Possibly not. Hard to say. Of course the airlines will tell us all that this is a non issue. Perhaps they would be correct from a purely safety standpoint and again perhaps they would be incorrect (to put it nicely). One thing is certain; outsourcing vital jobs to foreign workers is Un American. This type of thing is damaging to our nation. I don't like that vato! I don't like that.
