Pusser said:It's hard to say. First I think the Air Force needs to define, "work."
Dimsum said:I'm assuming you're being facetious, but even within the RCAF "work" is defined differently. For example, SAR Sqns have periods where they are at home, but on call so that's a workday for them. Even sitting in the back "resting" on a long flight, there are physiological issues that affect you - time change, noise, vibration, etc. A "joyride" in the back is work as well.
Then there's crew rest which is mandated for safety, etc.
Pusser said:Of course I'm being facetious ;D.
However, I am reminded of the joke:
Folks were sitting around the hangar and were the mood was grim. They were fed up with their situation and wanted change, but didn't know how to bring it about. "Why don't we go on strike?" said one young airman.
"We can't do that," said the sergeant. "It's against the law."
"I know," said the corporal, the squadron communist and NDP supporter, "let's work to rule!"
"What's that," asked the others.
The corporal explains, "That's where we show up for work and leave each day exactly on time and we only do exactly what we're told."
"Screw that!" said the others, "we're not working longer hours and doing more work, just to get our way!"
