I'm sure many of the crews involved would be really happy to discuss your opinion in person. Perhaps they'd like to show you pictures of the children that their job helps to feed. I'm sure that their family will understand why they have to be evicted because you're upset that you can't drive the big trains.Raichase & Mudgeeman, both of you deserve medals for what you have said, & in a realistic & quite constrained way also.
You didn't stop for a minute to consider that if they "applied for jobs through normal channels" based on merit and attitude that they would STILL get the job over you. They're not being taken on as charity cases - they have industry experience, they have experience working on various routes and locomotives, which is important to a company taking on a new contract on a new line. They've worked with the wagons used by AWB, something which many PN crews might not. They've showed loyalty to their employer, sticking it out and doing the right thing rather than jumping ship and heading for greener pastures.
Your post is a disgrace, both as a candidate for employment and as a human being.
Don't worry, as your own rationale dictates, "fair is fair in getting a job in the rail industry" - dedicated, loyal and experienced workers beats out self entitlement every time. But you said it yourself, fair is fair. Enjoy the waiting list. I think Woolies is hiring?
Well put, when he grows up he may have some credence in order to get on the footplate.
