Did they have the funds to pay those workers while they cut back on service due to the pandemic?
20/20 hindsight isn’t going to help the current situation.
They definitely lost mechanical employees to attrition as they did a retirement incentive and a lot of people retired in general during Covid. As they had a hiring freeze for a significant period they got in a hole and couldn’t keep up with attrition. According to a statement at the board meeting by the CEO there were supposedly not any involuntary furloughs for mechanical crafts.
