Flight Attendant Fired for Qualifying for Food Stamps

Kirsten Arianejad

Some of you may be familiar with Compass airlines, but we are not.  This is probably why they can’t afford to pay their flight attendants enough.  Earlier this month, a flight attendant by the name of Kirsten Arianejad was fired for publicly revealing that she is eligible for food stamps.  If you’re not able to feed your family and you’re excited you can get stamps to help out, what are you going to do? Keep it hush? Heck no! You’re going to yell it from the rafters! Well maybe not yell it, but you might share the news.

She shared the news with the news and it embarrassed the airlines. She told reporters that she only made $19 per flight hour and that they cut her health insurance, so she was forced to get food stamps. Compass should’ve run to her side and said, “Heeey, there there now! We’re going to up your salary and make it alllll good.  If not, please let us know.”  Now how is FIRING her going to look?  They already got the poor lady on food stamps.

  1. Wouldn’t that be illegal to fire her for something like that. Is it in a contract that she can’t tell how much she makes? They think they can’t afford to pay her enough working but what are they going to be paying her if she wins in court!! I bet they won’t come out ahead…

  2. Terrific work! This is the type of info that
    are meant to be shared around the net. Shame on the seek
    engines for now not positioning this put up upper!
    Come on over and seek advice from my site . Thank you =)

  3. Since they fired her, she should sue them. If I was her, I’d obtain a lawyer.
