30 Years Ago Today- ATC's Fired

It was 30 years ago today- August 5, 1981- that Air Traffic Controllers who did not return to work, forfieted their jobs.

It was this move, by President Ronald Reagan that began the colapse of the Soviet Union. Why? Because the Soviet's saw that if Reagan would fire Air Traffic Controllers, there was nothing he would not do.

To bad we do not have a President like him today.
