Ads a minus for public sector
By Howie Carr | Wednesday, March 2, 2011 | http://www.bostonherald.com | Columnists
Have you heard the ads running on the radio this week promoting the local pinky-ring public-sector unions excuse me, the working people of Massachusetts.
Some public-sector hack comes on and explains how he plowed your street or saved a puppy or some such nonsense. Thank God for the buttons on my car radio. The working people need some new writers. Im here to help with a few new scripts.
Im a parking-lot attendant at Logan Airport. Thats right, at the garage thats fully automated, where you have to pay inside the terminal. Im the guy you look for and cant find when you come back and realize your car wont start. Maybe Ill rent you some jumper cables for $20. I make $90,000 a year more than some of the pilots actually flying the jets. Im one of the working people of Massachusetts.
Im a toll taker on the Mass Pike. Dont call me unskilled labor I had to graduate toll takers school to get this job. Flunked out twice, but big deal the governor failed his bar exam twice, too. You wont be seeing me here at this booth much longer Im planning to drop a cash drawer on my foot and take the summer off. Teamsters rule, dude!
Im a court administrator and I take real loooong lunches. Im the first nonlawyer to hold this here $130,000 job, which means they had to hire an extra lawyer for $100,000 to perform the duties I cant do. God save the Massachusetts Trial Court. Im one of the working people of Massachusetts.
I work for the City of Boston. One o them snowstorms last month, the DPW was kind enough to come down my street one Sunday night with a CAT, a dump truck, and a supervisors pickup truck to clear the snow bank in front of my house. Im one of the working people of Massachusetts.
Im a cop out on disability at age 44. Maybe youve seen me around town jogging, rollerblading, playing tennis that knee injury was a killer. My spouse is likewise a retired cop. We send our kids to private schools. We know our jealous neighbors are diming us out to the papers anonymously but what do we care? Its not our fault they werent cute enough to hunker down at the public trough for the duration like we did. Were the working people of Massachusetts.
Im about to retire from Massport with a $200,000 pension at age 59. Im walking out the door with $459,000 in unused sick days. Im one of the working people of Massachusetts.
Only 15 days to Evacuation Day!
