Taxpayers are incredibly generous employers.

city government employee bus driver John E. Nelson earned $159,258 in 2009.

The tax payers are fools for the government...

Government will eventually choke America off.

"They're among the seven bus drivers who made more than $100,000 last year thanks to a union contract that lets the most senior drivers who have the highest base salaries get first crack at overtime."

Has the White House made them special consultants on Obamacare yet?

It’s hard to believe that once upon a time, urban mass transit was the job of private companies who had to bid for the work.

I don’t know the story but I heard it has to do with laws in the sixties that were designed to drive out the private bus companies.

That’s MUCH more than a pediatrician makes BEFORE Obamacare.

Tough s**t, Madison, you liberal bastion. Reap it; savor it; digest it; love it.

I love watching libs express shock at the fruits of their “labors”. A**holes.

The consequence of a snooping tax system...combined with union skulduggery....impoverishes those whom gov’mt is supposed to serve....

I can’t believe that a city the size of Madison could run a mass-transit system in any state but a loss without fares so high as to make auto ownership less expensive than using mass transit. Even before laughable situations like $100K+ bus drivers. But mass transit is yet another liberal mantra, like a college degree for everybody and state-run healthcare - that yields to no rational analysis.

From what I know of Madison, the residents probably don’t see this as a problem.

Damn, I worked several years with 450+ College hours for a triple major and a doctorate and I make 52K/year. I should have been a Union mafia bus driver...

Madistain has something in common with Kalifornia BART...

BART paid 145 train operators and station agents more than $20,000 apiece in overtime last year, and one of those employees earned more in overtime than his normal base pay, a Chronicle salary analysis found.

Obscene. Normally you have to be a 22 year old gofer at AIG or Goldman Sachs to make that kind of money.
