There is a reason why unions=mafia=libs.
Taxpayers are incredibly generous employers.
hey I’ll drive the bus for 90K!
The tax payers are fools for the government...
Government will eventually choke America off.
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.
Wow! Ralph Kramden could have afforded that string of Poloponies.
Another three weeks of driving this damn bus and I'm going to be able to pay for that boob job!
Where do I sign up???????????????
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.

are freakin kidding me? oh I get it now the stimulus money
I’m glad the man we coded the other night had a nurses earning a pittance compared to these so important drivers...
Obscene. Normally you have to be a 22 year old gofer at AIG or Goldman Sachs to make that kind of money.
