Did you know that the wages for a Trimet driver topped out at about $17/hr 30 years ago.
Today it's a little over $26 an hour.
That's a 35% increase, all due to cost of living raises, Trimet union employees have not had an actual raise in 30 years.
At the same time 30 years ago the General Managers salary topped out at $103,000.
Fred's salary was close to $300k, Mcfarlane is pulling down $220k.
Using Mcfarlanes salary as the basis that is a rise that's an crease of 120%.
Executive wages have increased by an absurd rate, yet the union is the problem.
