Air Canada to lay off 20,000 workers as pandemic collapses travel industry
The same thing happens to US airlines on Oct 1, when the requirements related to the current airline bailout expire... UNLESS... the politicians perceive mass furloughing of airline workers 5 weeks before an election to be a bad thing. They will. Expect airline bailout 2.0.
I think customer service representatives were the first workers Air Canada laid off.
