Strike Out

While on the whole I'm certainly glad I decided to be move from New York to Philadelphia five months ago, I do miss the Big Apple, and there haven't been that many days where I've said "damn, I'm sure as hell glad to be out of New York." Today, however, is one of those days.

The Transit Workers Union has gone out on strike, putting to a halt all trains and busses in a city in which the majority of residents don't have cars. It's a recipe for complete anarchy, of course, and if the TWU wanted to come up with a really good idea to turn the entire city against them, this was as good as they could possibly do. I'm normally generally supportive of organized labor, but not this time.

haha BLOGGER, you are so sounding like a republican again. While the strike has been annoying, its not impossible to function. I have been here all week and haev had to walk from Penn Station to my job and then either catch a cab, walk or get the PATH to 14th street and back.
