As negotiators for Bay Area Rapid Transit and its unions were back at the bargaining table Wednesday afternoon hoping to end a strike that has snarled the region's commute for several days, a newly-released KPIX 5 poll found almost twice as many people think BART management has made a better case than have the unions.

I am shocked that the BART workers are actually on strike to receive a 15% raise divided by three years in this time of sequestraion and 15-20% unemployment rate nationwide. Civil federal employees have had thier salaries frozen since January 2010 and most people are just plain happy to have a job during "The Great Recesion". I can only assume that when they get their slary increase the thousandsof riders they are refusing to serve will foot the bill.

yes the thousands of riders making up the avg income of $48000 yr pay in the end bart employees are the highest paid transit workers in the country thier greed is hurting many who depend on bart to commute some losing thier jobs i think they should clean house 15% pay cut if you dont like it kick rocks thousands would be greatful to get the job get rid of the selfish greedy bastards
