Tri-Met brass: It's all the union's fault
The head of Portland's insolvent transit agency has taken to badmouthing his employees' unions
these days. But he can't seem to make that the speech without a
"planning" consultant from CH2M Hill next to him. Ah, those consultants
-- who make the millions setting up money-burning rail projects like
the insane WES train and the equally nutty Mystery Train to Milwaukie.
Yes, the unions have overreached in recent years, but when Tri-Met ends
up in bankruptcy and the workers get maneuvered out of their pensions,
you won't see CH2M Hill giving back any money.
