Ryanair - misery machine?

    Ryanair have potential pilots by the balls because they need to get a start somewhere and the available slots are scarce. It's win-win for Ryanair because candidates are willing to pay to fly and, in effect, it's cost free to fill right-hand seats, especially when they know that virtually nobody will oppose Ryanair and other airlines, even legacy companies, will follow their example, except in those countries that are prepared to fight ryanair on issues such as bonding of contractors and minimum rates of pay, France being the honourable exception. This type of stuff is old news in America but at least there, you have a much wider aviation base and a chance to get a start is proportionally much easier and flying is so much cheaper.
