Re: “Bus Strike: City Denies Sun Tran 'Replacement Employees' Ads, Ensures (Again) It Cannot Intervene

Persis, you are just another clueless hater. Another one crying "Well I don't make that kind of money, why should they?" That's an underlying tone here. Want the good pay and benefits? JOIN A UNION! And you think driving a bus is such a piece of cake. There's a reason why Sun Tran has such a high turnover. Go back to the early days of the strike when Sun Tran/Veolia/TransDev put out their offer to the Teamsters. That offer included $.50 - yes, a fifty cents an hour raise - to the new hires ONLY and is - in Sun Tran's words - due to recruitment and retention issues. Means that they can't find and keep qualified people. Economics will teach you that wages are dependent on the number of people qualified and willing to do a certain job within any given population. Sun Tran had to put ads on Craigslist and fly in drivers to cross the picket line. And those illustrious scabs will be talking their $21/hr wages (including their $31.50/hr overtime) back to their home cities with them. They aren't part of the Tucson community, living and spending their money HERE.
