Can anyone explain why the NYC Transit workers union even exists, let alone wants to screw new york with a mass strike this weekend. All I see are lazy overpaid people driving buses. Im sure there are plenty of people who will take their jobs. I'd fire them all, including the mayor.

All the transit workers see are greedy undertaxed people riding the buses. Thus the strike threat.

Then we'll have to re-adjust their attitude and employment status. The people are their boss. Not the opposite.

What's their main beef? Salary? Benefits? Conditions? Just curious.

They want a 23% salary increase over 3 years... Anyone in the private sector find that kind of income growth on a scaled basis?

Dude, didn't you pay attention to the other thread? Union people are just evil, plain and simple. They don't have any reasonable demands - ever! What they want is to destroy the American way of life because they are all America-hating leninist-marxist revolutionaries. [;)] Even being CURIOUS about their "demands" is giving in to them! Stop it at once - don't you understand that we're at war for crying out loud?? Why don't you just send some money to the terrorists? Communist bastard ... [;D]

They heard that other union members don't have to work in the rain and decided that it wasn't fair that they had to drive in the rain. That and the fact that they only make $43.75/hr starting pay.

This strike doesn't have anything to do with free grammar and spelling lessons for the transit workers does it?

This is the moment for all you entrepeneurial types to make your move! The market is obviously ripe for competition in the public transportation sector in New York City.

8 million + riders per day, 1.50 a ride. AND it's subsidized.
