    Employees at Los Angeles International Airport were considering plans Friday to walk off the job ahead on what is traditionally the busiest traveling day of the year.

    A coalition of Southland labor and community leaders are calling for the protest of alleged violations by LAX contractor Aviation Safeguards (AVSG) after breaking their contract with the airport earlier this year.

    Andrew Gross-Gaitan, the director of the Southern California Airports Division of SEIU, told KNX 1070 NEWSRADIO that AVSG left more than 400 LAX workers without affordable family health care when it failed to comply with the city’s Living Wage Ordinance

    I hope they demand themselves right out of a job...just like Hostess "workers"...



    ...union goons are all alike...would rather lose their job than actually work.

    I'm sure the airport will be able to immediately hire qualified replacements.

    It makes no difference.... if you walk of your job you should expect to be fired.... either that day or when they find someone to replace your lazy ass.
