If you tried to park at the Allies garage this morning, you realize that the Teamsters blocked the entrance and you sat in a traffic jam and had to find somewhere else to park.
The parking lot workers have been offered a 50-cents per hour raise over three years, from $12.70 to $13.20 per hour and were offered to have 92 percent of employees’ monthly health premiums paid, and they rejected it and they are pissed as all get out.
Not to mention the tips that a lot of them get and the overtime.
Or is there something I’m missing? I had the same issue when the Turnpike toll-takers went on strike, because, as rude and mean as this sounds, I think being a turnpike toll taker is like a cashier at a grocery store, not that there’s anything wrong with that. Hell, I think working the lunch rush at Wendy’s would be harder than working the booth of a turnpike toll plaza, and those Wendy’s workers are NO WAY making what a tolltaker makes.
Honestly, Burghers, am I missing something here? Why are these car guys so pissed about $13.20 an hour?!
I feel mean.
