Hey! These are government employees with the backing of Obongo. You should have planned for it. Besides, bus driving skills are akin to that of a plumber who makes what a doctor makes so it only makes sense that they’d strike for higher wages. After all, they are a Socialist State.
Didn’t President Obama just say that you cannot go on strike? That you OWE it to your employer to show up and do a good job at the work you are paid to do?
The subjects of Massachussetts have spent the last fifty years empowering their corrupt, single party system and the public union leeches that feed off it. Behold the fruits of your labor.
I really cannot bear to read any articles coming out of the PRM. So tell me, in the article or comments, how many people blamed the Republican House of Representatives for shutting down the government buses?
I hear her momma’s name is Thunderbird.
