Letter to Mayor Rotkin

This letter was sent by me to Mayor


Mayor Mike:

If it is within your power to fire the bus drivers, I suggest doing so immediately.

For what it's worth, I'd back you 100%

As far as I'm concerned, the bus drivers are a bunch of sniveling crybabies who are having a tantrum because they can't have frivolous embellishments on an already diamond-studded wage and benefits package.

I absolutely don't know what they are thinking, but I know what they are doing. They are hobbling, even paralyzing, a large-sized portion of our community for the right to take a month off to kick their coffee
habits. (That was actually a reason given by one of the bus drivers as to why he needed a month off! Yes! Incredible!)

Fire them immediately. Hire seasoned cross-country big rig drivers who would be delighted to come home every evening and have consecutive days off, and who have never dreamed of having a month off, and who would be tickled pink to make $50-70k a year driving far fewer hours that they are accustomed to.

You go, Mike. Bravo! Tell 'em like it is.
