Transit districts are lying about not being able to find people.
Everybody with a brain knows that its not a 'labor shortage' its a pay shortage.
Considering what operators have to put up with these days these jobs need to be reclassified and the starting and ending wages must be increased significantly.
No Transit agency is stepping up to the plate to end the "driver shortages".
What's actually happening at TriMet and around the country and the world is that austerity is being imposed on the public and they hide behind the "labor shortage" myth
False propaganda--— Al M (@AlYourPalster) August 28, 2022
--the truth is nobody want to apply for this job at $24/hour and the retention bonus that is paid out over 3 years-
-TriMet management REFUSES to increase the wage scales to get good people, this is 100% a management failure- https://t.co/WTVSrN1Zq5
This is a form of cronyism removing "objective" criteria from contract requirement and replacing it with "subjective" opinions of the TriMet executives who are now free to hand the cash to whoever they wanthttps://trimet.org/meetings/board/pdf...
TriMet is a perfect representation of government itself. Steals your taxes, does shit for the citizens, but has an elite class making lots of cash and doing very little work. Service has been cut to the bone ,its barely operational, yet the bureaucracy keeps growing and stealing more and more cash while the board of puppets heaps endless praise onto them. It's sickening
Remember the days when the executives actually shared space with drivers? Those days are gone forever as the TriMet bureaucracy has spiraled out of control pic.twitter.com/Cfv05DJDmB— Al M (@AlYourPalster) August 19, 2022
The data makes clear that the trade unions are not organizations of the working class. They have been transformed into organizations that rob workers of billions of dollars in dues money in order to enrich bureaucrats who live comfortable lives in the richest 10 percent of American society. They suppress the class struggle and form a critical part of the Democratic Party and the imperialist state.
Holy shit there are 2 TriMet supervisors on the “criminal list” https://t.co/z0KsRvjgNB— Al M (@AlYourPalster) August 10, 2022
