Flight attendants are at work the minute they arrive on the plane. Safety checks before a flight, greeting and assisting passengers during the boarding process, and so on — these are all part of their duties. However, their meter for pay only starts ticking when the plane takes off. In other words, flight attendants only get paid for the hours that the engine starts, and the plane pulls away from the gate. Any time before the flight, they aren’t getting paid their full rate, or in some cases, not getting paid at all. The hours they spend away from home but not in the air, like say on a layover or in a different country, they get as little as $1.50 an hour.
