Last week, we launched “Behind the Boom”, a report that exposes the tax-payer resources given to American Airlines at Charlotte Douglas Airport.
Here’s an excerpt:
“Facing poverty wages and unaffordable health insurance, workers must make the impossible choice between their health and their bills. The airline catering and airport food service workers who help make Charlotte one of the most profitable airports for American Airlines have not shared in the airline’s prosperity. Over the past five years, American Airlines made $15.8 billion in profits while its subcontracted catering workers struggle to make ends meet. American Airlines also reaps the benefits of highly profitable concessions at CLT, the revenue of which American receives a portion every year. American Airlines must be held accountable for quality of jobs at Charlotte Douglas Airport.”
