Those with work ethic usually don’t stay at minimum wage jobs. Being a ramper isn’t meant to be a career. Now I will agreee that the business model of having piedmont/Envoy rampers gate agents needs to go. But I’m not the bean counter.Work ethic and minimum wage seldom work well together.
Absolutely. When I worked as a ramp controller in ATL, I met many from Delta that made it a career and were paid good money. But work ethic is a choice. And those that have it usually end up doing well for themselves. And those that work hard should be rewarded with either raises or promotions.You know it used to be, right?
Kinda like blocking Alpha in ORD waiting for an end gate. Though really ground just yells at you and you get to do the Hotel / Alpha bridge tour.I learned the trick to block the road, if the gate is open and no rampers. It's amazing how quickly "operations" get on their ass to get out there, when a dozen bag carts are stopped.
That right there is a big problem. Typically, regardless of one's excellence at a particular job, if that job is viewed as "low pay", there is no option for pay raises. Therefore, the only way to "advance" is promotion. Way too often this leads directly to the Peter Principle.... And those that work hard should be rewarded with either raises or promotions.
