Benjimin_Dover: Which illustrates why a minimum wage law which is a one size fits all with one set value for all regions like what Obummer is crying for is stupid. It should be tied to the cost of living in the area.
fluffy2097: thecactusman17: Woah woah: the average pay is $130k, not the average worker's salary. It's like saying the average Microsoft employee makes a million dollars a year while including Bill Gates. That's probably true of some of the conductors but not everybody. The employees on strike were the support staff and nobody had gotten a raise in about four years due to budget cuts.Their top paid janitor gets paid 80k a year.On average, they make 10 to 30k a year more then other people doing the exact same job in other places.They are obscenely well paid.
fluffy2097: It's not the BART's fault.We know where trains go, they are on tracks. We know when they go there, they are on schedules.What this is, is a lack of basic safety protocol. Probably brought about by constant strikes.
