American Airlines Employees Are So Mad at the Airline That They're Suing Them
They're accusing American of being really sneaky

Relations between airlines and their passengers have taken a dip over the last few years.
Ever since, I fancy, airlines decided that baggage fees were a splendid idea.
Once they realized how much they could make out of those, the airlines started trying to charge for as much as they could.
You know, for things that used to be free.
Now, though, some American Airlines employees are accusing the airline of nickel-and-diming them, too.
They say that the airline is using time-tracking technology that has pre-programmed time periods for a shift, for so-called "grace periods" and for a 30-minute break in a full day's shift.
The employees say that the system deliberately rounds down the number of hours worked and doesn't acknowledge the times when employees are asked to come in early, work late or even perform tasks during their lunch break.
