Canadian Air Traffic Controllers Send Pizza To Their American Counterparts During Unpaid Work During Government Shutdown

What better way to show compassion for their American counterparts during the government shutdown than to feed their friends.  American air traffic controllers are working without pay during the partial government shutdown and their Canadian colleagues showed support by sending pizza, a lot of pizza.

 The San Francisco Chronicle claims Canadian air traffic controllers have sent 300 pizzas to 10,000 American air traffic controllers because of the government shutdown.

The Canadian Air Traffic Control Association released a statement saying; “Air traffic control is a very stressful job. They say you have to be 100 per cent right, 100 per cent of the time. People just don’t need to be reporting to work with the added stress of worrying about how to pay their mortgages and grocery bills on top of it.” Source SFChronicle via AP Canada
