Operator death

 And I don’t know what to say or think. These were people who you greeted as you relieved their train or they relieved yours, joked around with in the break rooms, waved to as you passed their train and now they’re dead. I guess this is why I feel as strongly as I do about operator health benefits. This job has higher rates of death and injury than most jobs, and that’s not an abstract concept when it’s someone you know (or several people you know) who dies. I mean, did four of your coworkers die this past year? How are you supposed to react to that?
