As if airlines don't have enough problems: Let's create new ones.
If I were a qualified/educated black person trying to get hired by Delta right now; this would embarass me.
Delta used to have a VP of Diversity. Seriously! The Black leadership will complain because that is the only way anyone will notice them. That kind of crap is why I was so glad to leave ATL.
Black mayors, ceo's, business owners, news anchors, chamber presidents, NPO presidents, various govt officials, sheriff, chief of police, the list goes on, and yet they still complain about diversity. Oh yeah, didn't a bunch of Americans just elect a BLACK PRESIDENT?
Pretty amazing they can get statistics like that, but when we ask our union "how much Delta flying is performed by Delta pilots" the response is like asking Dick Cheney about his lesbian daughter.In 2007, according to the document, the airline spent $28 million with Asian-American-owned firms; $26 million with Hispanic-owned firms; $21 million with African-American firms; and $200,000 with Native American-owned firms.
For the first eight months of 2008, the airline only spent $12 million with African-American suppliers; $20 million with Hispanic-owned firms; $18 million with Asian-American-owned firms and $1 million with Native Americans.
NO! They wouldn't have a job otherwise.
