WOW! Nothing towards their pension?! That is why cities these days file for bankruptcy! There unions are thugs that hold the public hostage to their demands. If they strike, fire them all and hire non union people. A janitor making 82K a year!!

Ronald Reagan did it with the air traffic controllers and no planes fell out of the sky so there is no reason why they couldn't all be fired as son as they miss a shift. I'd bet that the vast majority of them would jump at the chance to apply for their old jobs at half the pay and benefits.

Do these guys with short memories remember what happened to General Motors as it was slowly bled to death with excessive pay and incompetent management???

we dont owe the G O P nothing. We will dump them in 2016 so they can go work the border with the demoncats. Then we will start the big project and dump ALL the surplus population off the rolls; old smelly pants, young smarty brats, infirm droopy drawers, lazy fatheads, fat greesy knees, funny talking staring creeps, bad dressers and non-believers will have to go. What BART needs is to have all ALL of these jobs become an example of the positive results of a real time minimum wage; $3.25 an hour is plenty if you plan and dont buy more than you can pay for. HUMBLE is good. The jerks that called us Reichsplublicans have not hurt us at all. We kinda like the word now and enjoy the free publicity. JERKS, we run the house, soon the whole magilla tamale pie.

Sorry, the GOP is gone forever. The population has shifted to the left and there is no room left for you. You greedy Pubs wanted all the cheap labor from south of the border.Now it has come back to haunt you. These same people will never vote GOP so you cut your own throats. Ha Ha!
The majority of the population is still center right but so many of them are disgusted and don't bother to vote. Any shift to the left just proves the dumbing down of the populous.
