Mr. Mallett goes on to state that BART train operators are paid to run two round-trips each day. This takes 4.5 hours on average, but the operators are paid for eight. The effective pay rate according to Mr. Mallett is a little over $50.00 per hour.
Compounding this, I'm not sure why overtime, which is so prevalent among the workforce, is necessary.
