In addition to the now usual JFK/UMass busted-signals delays, Red Line riders coming in on the Braintree branch suffered even more delays when a train died at North Quincy.

This won't end until the unions are disbanded and the management is fired. These hacks are laughing at us. Every day.

"Hacks"? Howie, is that you? This is a lukewarm take at best. Sometimes, firing everybody and creating organizational turmoil actually is not the solution... and if you find yourself needing to do that, perhaps it's the hiring that's the real problem, and you should talk to our tall governor about his poor performance in that area.

As for the unions, as far as I'm concerned, their only problem is they don't have enough members. The T is on record stating that they don't have the resources (i.e. staff) needed to carry out their capital and operational plans. We need more workers at the T, not fewer, and the ones we need will probably be union. I support that completely.

What kind of way is that to pick your potential employees? Do they not have a Human Resources office. So basically MBTA employees are chosen by chance.
