I am very curious if this problem with the mechanics pay is limited to the one park or are the other 5 Six Flags parks in jeopardy of this happening (stated in another article that there are 5 other parks with union workers - posted below but the parks are not specified). Does anyone know if the pay rates for employees are regional or national?

It;d be funny if the next RCT (if there ever will be one) would have the feature of the workers going on strike!

On a serious note, this sucks. I hope the workers can reach an agreement with Six Flags. I doubt Six Flags pays well, although I could be wrong.
