Where I live the Metro transit drivers are in talks' as they call them to come to an agreement' concerning more wages, and better working conditions. They make up to $50, 000 a year, and they want better pay?!
Their starting salary is through the roof.. They start their day, gassing up their vehicles- buses,- get their morning coffee, read the newspaper- I have seen them do this- chat with fellow workers and gripe; then head off on their appointed routes, and meet the passengers, most of the public are pretty decent, their may be a few who are disruptive, but other than that driver's have a good day= and really can't complain. !
They certainly make the highest wages of some of the city workers, without a doubt, and they still want to strike.
They are not concerned that people-the public's lives will be disrupted. That some people will not be able to afford a taxi to work or school and thereby, lose their jobs, or miss alot of school time if they can't-find a drive or other way to travel..
We are in the middle of the winter season, and it is cold out and more snow on the way!
They need to be reminded that they were hired to serve the public- not bite the hand that feeds them- that is the paying customer..
I have posted in the newspaper, along with other people, my disappointment and anger over the driver's wanting to strike by Thursday..
Thank you very much for reading..!
