I am the person who usually posts about how much the trains in NYC suck. Well, here's another one.
Bad service is all the transit workers going on strike because they don't get a 24% raise over a three year time span. Apparently, a 3% raise every year isn't good enough.
Bad service is all the transit workers going on strike because new hires actually have to contribute a small percentage of their pay to healthcare.
Bad service is all the tranit workers going on strike because they want to be able to retire at 55 instead of 62.
Bad service is the fact that I had to get up 3 hours early today to carpool to work because no trains are running BECAUSE THERE IS A STRIKE!
The union was threatened with fines if they strike. I hope it happens. I really do.
