No fare free transit for you Portland but no fare increase next year

TriMet sock puppets meeting 🐷🐷🐷🐷🐷


1-TRIMET PAYROLL TAX has to comply with federal regulations, which apparently have changed.

2-TRIMET STRATEGIC PLAN, There is only one thing of significance in here that I can see, the sock puppets are raising the debt ceiling to 7.5% from 6%. As far as I am concerned this is criminal activity which will allow the banks to plunder additional tax dollars

3-TriMet's chief corporate welfare recipient  is STACY&WITBECK.  In this RESOLUTION  they get $509,00 for "pre-construction" work. What the hell do they do at Trimet Capital projects anyway?All this sort of thing is handed out for private profit. I still can't understand why running more trains on an existing track is costing 200 million dollars. But we can't have fare free transit can we.

4-CH2MILL is another of TriMet's top corporate welfare clients. These people are global when it comes to government contracts, as far back as the panama canal where thousands died. In this RESOLUTION  they want more money because "cross disciplinary requirements"  require more money! Of course they do. TriMet hounds riders over $2.50 but corporate Amerikka only has to ask for a larger handout to get it

5-MULTI CULTURAL OUTREACH? Kelsey wants an exemption to contracting rules for this piece of useless pork. Doesn't say how much it is other than its more than $500,000. Way to go TriMet you neoliberal hacks

The Reddit bus driver

enjoy. So things are looking up.

As far as driving for TriMet, it’s a great job. I make over $50K a year now. More than I’ve ever made. I’m contributing to my retirement and my health insurance is pretty great. I’m just overwhelmed by the feeling that I am good for this job, but the job isn’t good for me, but things will continue to get better. I’ll get a better choice of schedules going forward and I’ll keep getting raises every few months until I hit $30+ an hour.

Shut the technocrats down

Transit workers must immediately stop allowing themselves to booted around like beaten dogs. Management paints pictures that all is well in the world of transit operations when the exact opposite is the truth. Shut down the systems. We are beginning to see a worldwide revolt against the agents of the oligarchy (looking at you Kelsey you foreign assassin) and their abuse of working men/woman

The end

From the TriMet bus drivers side

When contract negotiations begin, we're starkly-reminded that we're considered "greedy" nuisances rather than valued and vital reasons for the very existence of those charged with overseeing the day-to-day operations of local transit.

From the TriMet Drivers Side

Management has run ads pleading for more operators, describing us as personal counselors, city ambassadors and other flattering descriptors. Even so, they conspire to replace us with machines. This is without any respect to the working class. Therefore, I beg my fellow ops to change their overhead destination signs to read: GARAGE. Fuck this blatant attempt at bullshitting unsuspecting job-seekers with promises of golden glory when simple trickery awaits them.
