Want a job at BART? Check this out!

If I can make decisions for BART, I would 1) terminate relationships with all unionized employees, 2) search for new candidates under a generous and fair compensation and benefits plan that won't cripple the system, 3) welcome back those employees who are willing to work under unrepresented conditions, 4) shorten training program by 50% (come on, the trains are semi-automated, and if you hire smarter people, it wouldn't take months to train new drivers!) while using the 20+ managers who right now know how to operate the trains.  Passengers will need to suck it up for a few weeks but most would be willing to do so to end this unionized nonsense, and 5) start BART operations anew with new staff.

Of course, this is just me sharing my would-be actions without understanding the legal ramifications.  However, through my dreaming this up, I found the BART job boards.  I wanted to see how much qualifications were required to apply to work as a station agent, train operator, maintenance crew, security, etc.  The answer is?  Not much!  Any of us can do it...truly.

Check it out!

Arrest all San Francisco BART union workers and charge their unions under RICO. Replace them with SF Symphony union loser musicians who think real work is beneath their dignity.
