Jobs ranged from entry-level positions to top management roles, Deslongchamp said.

They're filling top management jobs at a job fair? Was CEO available?

Democrats think that easy to get employees is to pay them more. Republicans think the way to get employees is make the working-class more desperate.

"Top Management" = Front Line Supervisor who makes an extra buck an hour to run a staff of 38 people.

 If the company wont post the wages why should people bother?

I'm surprised that nobody wants to work at an airport for crap wages and stupid shifts. Surprised, I tell you.

That was probably the shoddiest piece of journalism ever produced:

* what were the jobs offered?
* what were the terms & conditions?
* at a MINIMUM -- what pay was offered?

I wonder how much applicants had to pay for parking?

"Top Management" = Front Line Supervisor who makes an extra buck an hour is salaried to run a staff of 38 people.


And thus, when the place is inevitably understaffed (because the franchise owner won't allow you to schedule that many hours), you end up working 60-70 hours a week.  Salaried. And so make less per hour than the part-timers.

Do airport employees get a discount on a metro pass?  Because they're $200 a month, or nearly two days of work for a $15/hr employee.

I applied for a job singing funky little ditties on their tram.

"Next is concourse A. Concourse A is next. Dingle dingle dangle dangle dingle dangle DONG."

Still waiting to hear back from them. I think my audition went well, though.

With the mark-ups on food at the airport you'd figure these companies would be able to pay the most. Imagine if they increased the pay as much as they increased the cost of food.

So, since all of these places are sooo desperate for applicants who were in suuuuch short supply, the applicants were able to walk back and forth between tables and create a bidding war between employers, ultimately resulting in something slightly closer to a realistic market wage than they might've received in the Before Times, right? They weren't just met with "this is what corporate has allocated, I'm powerless to change it," because that would be extremely anti-free market, right?

Hey, why are you laughing? I was promised this is how capitalism works its miracles!

The very early buses have always been loaded with lots of workers - both these concessions and TSA. I have no idea if they are paying their own fares or get some commuter perk from their employer or DIA. It's still a pretty long commute from everywhere.

They do in the job postings.  Yahoo news not exactly the pinnacle of reporting.
