Others Will Rule The World

The recruitment advertisement above seeks a range of skills that Wabtec need. Most are for recognised areas of expertise but I’m intrigued by the last classification. What skills do we need to be rated as competent  ‘Others’? Perhaps there is a mission to mystify employment regulations to baffle or bypass Brussels.

I know that we “Others” also use budget airlines. These flyboys now separate we mortals into those who wish to pay for a seat; now regarded as a ‘Biz or Priority borders’ and the remainder – now classified as ‘Others.” As all airlines spend their days copying each other to grab an extra quid profit, perhaps they want us to overcome the stigma of being an ‘Other’. But this surely will mess up Wabtec’s plan to recruit us.

Following the saying that the meek will inherit the earth – if that’s OK by you, there could be significant grounds for we “Others” to have a crack.

The meandering thoughts of someone with too much time on his hands. Tending to see the obscure and irrelevant in most events I have been forced to record this by family members as a means of diverting attention away from them. But I see their plan.
