BART management. man up. Stay the course, even if it means firing all of the BART slugs. They can easily be replaced. Very few of them are that skilled, especially the operator slugs that ride around all day next to the big red button, while computers run the trains. You might even get some that are not surly slugs. Their compensation, benefits, and retirement are already outrageous. Paying them even more is simply unthinkable.
