GOOD ARTICLE DESCRIBING HOW THE ELITE ARE TRYING TO DESTROY UNIONS

politicians and their billionaire buddies who never tire of vilifying unions for their own political purposes and their friends’ economic gain.
They seek to lodge a wedge between bus drivers and the public by suggesting that, somehow, transit workers don’t care about things that are essential to their continued employment.
In doing so Nations is deploying the same divide-and-conquer tactic that the “multiple transit agencies” he mentions use as an excuse to cut service, raise fares, retain austerity budgets and keep the taxes of the rich as low as possible.
Nations would have you believe that transit workers are to blame for transit’s problems in St. Louis and across the country, but the passengers drivers see everyday are not so easily fooled
