Deny Norwegian Air International
Hundreds of airline employees, workers from other industries as well as several union leaders came together at The White House to call for the the DOT to halt efforts to offshore the jobs of US airline employees.

If NAI is able to gain final approval and compete against US carriers with low wage cabin and cockpit crews, it only be a matter of time before US carriers use it as an excuse to create their own international subsidiaries to compete with Norwegian and begin shipping jobs overseas.
