    Thank the ridiculous union rules for reckless and dangerous bus drivers keeping their jobs. Public unions are the main blockade to safer and more cost effective public transportation.

    Seems like Ricketts is being a vindictive ahole.

    So, were you trying to just derail this with more obnoxious unrelated nonsense? God forbid people like bus drivers or journalists have any access to a livelihood in a city rapidly turning into a theme park for neoliberal white people barely deigning to acknowledge the people trying to contribute to society. But hey, late-stage capitalism sounds like its really working out for you, champ!

  • hopeyglass

    Seems like it because it’s true!

    Hey folks, let’s keep the conversation civil. The comment in reference to the article about CTA bus drivers who seriously injure or kill people keeping their jobs, not the DNA/Chicagoist situation. Thanks.

    The CTA hasn’t raised fares in several years. Do you have evidence that unions are preventing public transportation from being cost effective?
