    Yes- I must agree with you. Many amazing decisions are being made as I type this.

    And as is usual, you and I are unaware of them.

    And as (is?) usual, so are they. I admire your admiration though. Lol.

    'As is usual' implies a more specific emphasis than 'as usual' does.

    "As is the norm" would be the more acceptable phrase to use in this context; then again, I am just a pasty white guy who has the ability to form coherent sentences.

    "As is the norm" flows to easily ... 'As is usual' draws attention due to it's staccato phrasing.

    There are a lot of issues with how we promote people, but for the most part of you’ve been a FT sup for more than, let’s say 10 years without being promoted, there is probably something wrong with you

    New guys can do just as bad a job for a lot less money. True story.

    The solution to your problem of being passed for a new position - is to have management join the union, then you can use seniority to obtain the position you desire.

    In the airline, you need to be a "sub-subordinate" and Kowtow to the Dix above you to get considered for the next level. It's common knowledge, but rarely talked about. The current regime in the airline are so paranoid that open and constructive discussion is suppressed and penalized. Not for Me!

    Most common: poor performance on the management of your skin color.
