Re: “Bus Strike Opinion: The Ghost of Transit Past Has Become the Nightmare of Transit Present

If this city elects Paul Cunningham, Regina Romero or Shirley Scott into the City council again, it will be proof positive that we the people are stuck on stupid! This is an absolute cluster f...k! We have a City Council that cannot prioritize. Can anyone think of any other city of this size, with the poverty rate at one of the highest in the country that does not have a viable and reliable transportation system!??? What a disastrous mix!!! Our young, elderly, poor, disabled are getting killed by this strike. I would hope with all the people losing jobs, homes, health, that there could be a class action lawsuit against the City, State, or Federal Government. I read an article today Regina's only concern is that Sun Tran is hiring bus drivers. This city council actually wanted to shut Sun Tran down from hiring temp bus drivers!! but Steve K was the lone vote that blocked that decision!!! Outrageous! This year vote in the three new bloods all republicans, but who cares at this point. They cannot be worse! Teamster members get fully paid health insurance, fully paid pensions, they should be forced to pay into both of these benefits like the rest of us, and the average wage is $16 per hour. They should only be allowed cost of living wage increases like the rest of us. These city/government workers are becoming a class of their own. Who gets fully funded health benefits and pension in the private sector? The sorry management company that the city council hired should fix the dang mold problem and provide security for the riders and drivers. The City needs to increase fares and adjust routes! Come on! I am sickened by this.
