Slow Year?

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if slow years ( like the one most of us just had) has an Impact on hiring foreign hires? I do mean to stir it up a bit , not because I don't like them, but when do we pull in the reigns and take care of own? This isn't targeted at Canadian citizens with accents either just people with Visa's.

How can you predict how a season will be? If they could I am sure their hiring would be different. Am I a foreigner, yes.. Here on a visa, with Permanent resident papers in processing. :D

Good topic!!! I personally know of a pilot from South Africa who is flying for a Canadian company, living in Canada, NOT PAYING ANY CANADIAN TAXES and to boot.... whining about how the system is better in South Africa!! Does anyone have the number to Immigration Canada????? I am really tempted to turn this one in!!

Predict? The season is almost over and as far as I can tell not the best of one. My point is if you were in said country and there was a slow year would you not want your Goverment or Companies that are in said country to look out for there own. Not Canada.

 

Thats why we are the doormat to the world. Its a matter of time before we are getting paid 60 g a year to fly twins like the States.

Yip you should only be allowed to fly in the country you where born in...so all Canadian's flying offshore...start packing :lol:

If you would have read the original post ( which obviously you didn't ) I'm talking about 500- 1500 hour guys doing the flying we have more than qualified people here to do. I will take back my comments if you tell me about a vast majority of 100 to 1500 hour canadians flying over seas that can't be filled by said countries trained pilots.

 

So D!ckhead, if those offshore positions can be filled by said countries pilots then yes those Canadians working offshore should get packing.

Well Shakey put it this way, if you don't mind taking the side from the emplyee. Look in your own reigns how many good workers do you know, canadians... ? well there are the oldtimers who know how to behave, and learnd their DRINKING limmits and are a professional bunch of good guys. Congratulations to you all guys. But then you got those young guys who have to have all kind of toys and have to gegeet ham mmm merd every weekend if not more frequently, kinda rednecks or so...

how many of those make it more than one summer ? or shall i say one shift .... well there are the lucky once because their needet and luckily we are still able to get some work, to bring our guys up, but with 80$ a day.... if all the big pilot habit's can't be paid and then there are student loans to pay back and the housing doesn't get cheeper.... it's a money thing too .... and let me ask you an other shakey question i guess if you would be offered a job to go to south america and a good pay you maigth go too... so and then those guys from overseas are mostly a bit cheeper because of their exchange rate they make a good pay over here and they usually have one goal .... and that is to fly and not too get waisted....

maybe we should raise our yungsters with milk and honey (provides strong bones and sweetnes) and not with beer and moonshine ( what obviosly kinda get rid of your braincells and resistance )

 

have a nice day and laugh a lot about it. will ya... :shock:

Cant resist this one! The one I love hearing is " oh well back in _____ land we do it this way, Mate!" and then the "oh things back home are all good mate!" The obvios question I have never heard answered is if things are so great there then why are you working here?
