UNIONS SCREW NY, ALREADY HAVE MORE BENEFITS THAN AVERAGE NY SUBWAY RIDER!

NYC-TWU STRIKES! -with other union support

ALL OF THESE (CWA, UFT, AND OTHER) UNIONS BACKING THE TWU STRIKE ARE FULL OF IT! AN EXAMPLE: THE LIRR HAD A "BREAKDOWN" BETWEEN WOODSIDE AND JAMAICA, FORCING PASSENGERS TO TAKE THE SUBWAY TO JAMAICA LAST FRI. NIGHT. IF THIS WAS DONE IN "SYMPATHY" WITH THE TWU (WHO ALSO HAVE HAD A HIGHER RATE OF SUBWAY "BREAKDOWNS" SINCE THE FIRST STRIKE DEADLINE PASSED), THEN THEIR UNION SHOULD BE PENALIZED UNDER THE LAW FOR THEIR COMPLICITY IN THIS ILLEGAL ACTION. THE PROBLEM IS THAT NOBODY WILL PURSUE THIS, CITING THE "SENSITIVITY" OF THE NEGOTIATIONS. WELL, NOW THERE'S A STRIKE! EVERY INFRACTION SHOULD BE FULLY INVESTIGATED, AND PENALIZED AGAINST THE UNION FOR THE HARM THEY HAVE DONE TO THE PUBLIC WELFARE (TO QUOTE A FAVORITE LIBERAL PHRASE). I HAVE NO SYMPATHY FOR THE GRINCHES WHO ARE STEALING CHRISTMAS FROM (AT LEAST) THOUSANDS OF STRUGGLING NY'ERS. THEY NEED TO PAY SOMETHING FOR THEIR OWN HEALTH CARE, LIKE THE REST OF US, ESPECIALLY THOSE WHO DON'T HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE AT ALL. THE UNIONS' DRAIN ON THE PUBLIC DOLE IS PROBABLY HEAVIER THAN SUPPORTING THE INDIGENT.

DON'T BE GREEDY, GIVE TO THE

NEEDY, TWU!

Merry ChristMass, Chris, and have a Happy New Year!

NY has always been that way. That is why there is a larger sales tax in the city than the whole state! That is also why I am living in CA (not much better, but the weather is the best!) :)
