Rita Wages, 50, filed a charge of discrimination Jan. 19 with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, which enforces federal laws against discrimination in the workplace. The charge says she was dismissed from Citrus Connection in December after three years of employment.
Wages, a Lakeland resident, claimed the firing came in retaliation for her reporting a violation of federal health information privacy laws while she was on medical leave in June.

CLIPS FROM AROUND THE TRIMET SYSTEM


HOW TO RIDE METRO BUS FREE-JEFF WELCH

Ride Free Area Not Limited to Downtown Seattle
While King County Metro has maintained a “ride free area” (RFA) in the Central Business District (CBD) since 1973, the RFA is slated to come to an end later this year and Metro will begin a universal “pay as you enter” system.  No more will passengers be permitted to board Metro coaches without paying.
So called “fare evasion” is the practice of riding a bus where fares or valid passes are required – without presenting a valid pass or fare.  In some cases the passenger has realized that they left their pass at home, or makes an honest error.  In many more cases however fare evasion is the deliberate act of a passenger wishing to make use of public transportation without paying the fare – either due to inconvenience (I don’t have change right now), entitlement (I pay taxes already), or outright disregard for the law (I just don’t feel like it).

ADA FOLLIES

Our mad managers, the hysterics that run this place, so quick to jump on its front line employees all the while hiding the gross incompetence of themselves, make such a big deal out of the stop's being called.

Management abrogated its promised upgrades to its bus system, now in their attempt to cover their own asses are finding ways of pointing fingers at operators,  which has been the technique used by management for some time now.

One of the glaring flaws in the ADA is the complete ignoring of the needs of the DEAF!

THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING IN THE ADA TO MAKE IT EASIER FOR DEAF PEOPLE TO HELP USE TRANSIT!

Interesting isn't it?
