Well, the right-wing dingbats have been clamoring for days about how skill isn't needed to drive the Bart trains. Hey, fire 'em all and let the managers drive until minimum wage replacement are found! After all, there isn't any skill needed. These Bart workers are waaaaaaay overpaid. And this strike only inconveniences the commuters, not the workers one bit.
Now we have this recent report:
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- WALNUT CREEK, Calif. (AP) Police from the San Francisco Bay Area's rapid transit system say two employees performing maintenance have been struck and killed by a train.
Saturday afternoon's accident on a track in Walnut Creek comes amid a strike by Bay Area Rapid Transit workers that has shut the system down. But some trains were being moved by managers.
It was unclear how the 1:45 p.m. accident occurred. BART Deputy Police Chief Ben Fairow confirmed the deaths to the Contra Costa Times (Web Link ). The newspaper said there are two tarps on the tracks about 150 yards apart.
