So find another job

"Air New Zealand flight attendants preparing to strike over wages are taking on work over and above their airline jobs just to stay above the poverty line, a representative says..."

So find other work. A flight attendant is just a glorified waitress who doesn't get tips.

And need I remind you that your union got you this deal in the first place.

Then a little googling found they get a hell of a lot more than a waitress!

"...Air NZ has responded by saying the union's claims about the wages of staff have been significantly over-stated.

General manager Tasman Pacific Airline Glen Sowry said the union had rejected an offer which would have meant a new entrant Zeal flight attendant, working 30 hours a week and a nine-day fortnight, would earn $41,000 per annum.

"This income for a new recruit is 17 percent higher than the median wage for people working a full 40-hour week in New Zealand..."

And that was the end of any shred of sympathy...
