It's Over Johnny

The MTA strike is over. Those greedy swine are finally going back to their token booths and computerized trains. It's about damn time. Of course it's going to take 3 days for those bastards to have the trains going again, but I think we'll have buses by tomorrow.

Anyway, I'm too lazy to read into the specifics but the workers seem to be real scumbags. I mean you make $47-$55,000 +benefits and you retire at 50 or 55. Sounds pretty goddamn fair to me. I hate to do this but I'm going to quote Bloomberg, this is what he said about the effect the strike is having on people that actually make a shitty living, unlike MTA employees:

“These are not people who are making $50-$60,000 a year. These are people making $10, $20, $30,000 a year, and they're the ones who are really suffering,” said Bloomberg. “What fraud this really is, if you think about it - claiming to be the champion of working families, when the illegal actions they are taking are costing New Yorkers their livelihood. I don't think there is any other way to describe it."

Fuckin-A Bloomie, I hate you a little less right now.
