"Now, how much income was lost in 10 days?" Better question is how many people who relied on CARTS for transportation were impacted because of this money grab...

"Now, how much income was lost in 10 days?" They ended up getting 5 cents an hour more than the original offer and a four year contract. That figures out to .05 x 40hrs = $2 a week x52 weeks =$104 per year x 4 years $416. I am guessing they lost more than $416 for the days they were off without pay. But they showed them didn't they !!

Beaumont says "If you were not involved in the action, What the*****is it any of your business. Did you work there? and now will come a cry story about taxes." - this is beyond taxes. It's about the customers that were effected by the money grab. Seems the union thinks their customers are there for their members. In reality, the workers are there to serve their customers.

That is a good question ladybug. How did they get to their appointments? I guess they or their families did it rather than them depending on the government to take care of them. I know when my parents were older I or someone in the family took them. We still do it for an aunt and uncle yet today. Maybe we need to go back to the way things use to be done when people took care of their own.

So what you are saying is that because CARTS is unionized that the workers are better skilled, program more profitable, and agency does not need to hire anyone?
