Ah well, as a union operator these days, every day you work you get paid half what you used to...

(apologies to those affected by this strike for this quip)

yeah i saw some footage of that re: broklyn bridge... fascinating! that many people.

for those who missed:

the mayor is talking about aresting the union members who started it. the union officials are AGAINST the strike urging the workers to go back to work...

up to 7million people are shuttled back and forth by the transit system daily.

amtrak and the rail system are in an overload.

streets have been shut down....

arbitration is still on going with no agreement in site just yet..
