Re: “Sun Tran Strike Opinion Piece: The Bus Buck Stops Where?

I want to set something straight about the wages and pay that these drivers are getting a lot of you guys are saying that these drivers are making a base pay of $20 an hour I'm a former Transdev operations supervisor and I can tell you unequivocally that that is furthest from the truth. The majority of these drivers start out at like $10 an hour while in training and then go up to about $12 an hour for the first 60 days that's the way that the contract is written here in Phoenix they get a additional raise all the way to top out at 2265 but that's not after 5 years. A lot of the drivers don't even make it to five years hell they don't even make it past the year when the the stress gets to you and a lot of the drivers simply just quit for one reason or another. Sun Tran drivers are no exception they start at around $10 an hour and on average probably are making between 12 and $14 an hour this idea they make that they say that they make $20 an hour is completely laughable and completely untrue. I support these guys and their strike against this French company because they have shown themselves here to be nothing but greedy bastards are lining their own pocket. A lot of you are saying that these people should just be fired and people are knocking down the doors you know in fact the federal requirements to get a CDL are so stringent that a majority maybe 8 out of 10 applications are rejected and those two out of those two applicants maybe one will make it to graduation and obtain a CDL so if you believe that it's so easy to get a CDL I challenge you I've had mine for 16 years with a clean driving record and I tell you the first year to keep your license clean is the toughest so if you think that you can do this job I challenge you go down there a reply go through the training go through the screenings go through the federal mandated requirements to obtain a CDL I guarantee you will not last the training. And that's why a lot of people who are unemployed will apply for these jobs just don't make it to standards

Re: “McSally Campaign Moves To Toss Out Pima County Ballots

As a territorial family member @kit warden your a pig. My family has been in what is now Arizona and by burning the Mexican flag, a flag that has historical significance as one of the seven flags that flew over this territory. How would you like it if I burned a confederate flag or a Gadsden Flag or even a US flag? Probably won't like that huh?

Re: “Immigrant Rights Groups Want DeConcini Out of CCA, Private Prison Industry

CCA is a corrupt organization that needs to be dealt with. I am a former employee of the company who is a plaintiff in a federal lawsuit against them for discriminatory practices and defamation of character. I support what these people are doing.
