US Airways Hires Temps to Beat Back The Riot

The flood of complaints cometh for US Airways. A mountain of angrily worded, capital-letters writ correspondences, accompanied by suggestive stewardess voodoo dolls and the bleating, decapitated heads of voodoo-possessed pigs.

$8.50 an hour to beat back a maddening crowd? Slinging greasy burgers looks better and better.
