Well, They Did Strike...

The Transit Workers Union did strike, shutting down the subways and busses, so I was wrong about that. But, Pataki and Bloomberg have persisted in their tantrums and it looks like the state supreme court in Brooklyn has joined in trying to break the union by imposing a million dollar a day fine on it.

Bloomberg called the workers "Selfish," which is guess is billionaire for a worker who wants a raise.

What's forgotten is that these workers haven't received a raise in years since the last contract they signed offered no wage increases.

No prominent member of the local government has even entertained the notion that these workers have a point. That's sad.
