I heard about the strike on the news this morning. It’s because of that that my mom’s staying home today. She doesn’t know if she’ll be able to get to the work at all. Plus, she doesn’t like carpooling.
My understanding of it is that the strikers will be fined double the wages of the days they missed.
Personally, I think that’s a pretty low thing to do. I’m all for everyone getting a fair shake, but as a person who’s been to New York City, not having the subway system is a crippling blow. I hope it gets settled soon.
As much as I agree for them all to be fired, I don’t know how long it will take for them to ‘replenish’ the people lost, since NY is a huge city with the stock exchange, etc…the government might want to get the transportation up n running ASAP :S
Well that kind of screws up our CHristmas travel plans a bit.
We were going to take an Amtrak down to Penn Station and catch a commuter train to Port Jervis but we’ll get off a Pougkepsie(sp) instead and get picked up there.
