United Judge Imposes Pay Cut for Machinists

NPR's David Schaper reports that a federal bankruptcy judge in Chicago has imposed a temporary 14-percent pay cut on machinists for United Airlines. Pilots, flight attendants, dispatchers, and meteorologists working for the air carrier agreed earlier to pay reductions for the next few months while United tries to emerge from Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.
