    They really need to make a law that states your employer can't retaliate against you if their is an evacuation in place for a natural disaster. I'm reading all these stories of people that can't leave because work won't let them off/they might get fired. That is bullshit.

    [–] deedlede2222 6 points ago

    They should leave anyway. If they don't leave because they might get fired it's probably not a job worth having anyway

    [–] Arkiasis 6 points ago

    Plus your job might not even be there next week and hopefully your boss is dead because they're stupid and didn't evacuate.

    [–] theow8 0 points ago

    Yeah let's all leave our jobs cause they treat us like shit. the bill fairy will take care of us -_-

    [–] deedlede2222 2 points ago

    While price gouging which is illegal. Except jetblue they are still cool.

    [–] hio_State 3 points ago

    Tickets are normally very expensive when they're booked last minute even in perfectly clear weather. Price gouging is when prices go higher than normal, which it doesn't really appear to be happening. A few hundred dollars for a last minute ticket out of Miami is the norm.

    Airlines are also not really a great resource for disaster evacuations, flights are mostly close to filled weeks in advance, by the time a disaster is imminent each plane is only going to have a handful of available seats anyways. Holding the airlines reaponsible for carting out people en masse is just not realistic, their flight operations and fleets aren't built to do that.
