Workers are taking matters into their own hands
That's what the video says. Really, I think it's about time to throw things at our bosses and set a few tires on fire. I mean, at the very fucking least.
Incredibly, the Large Iron Bridge is hiring a few bus drivers. This is a good thing. One of the new drivers is a laid off banker. He's a member of the Conra Costa county Chicano Republican club. He seems like a personally nice enough fellow, but he needs some serious smartening up. He told me that I don't know what lay offs are like, what with my lucking into a secure job.
For one thing, I didn't luck into the motherfucker, I worked my ass off getting this job and I've worked my ass off keeping it. I knew exactly what I was trying to do and luck had relatively little to do with it. I'm glad to hear that even bankers can get lucky from time to time.
For another thing, when they close up the entire financial district, tear down the buildings, let the field sit vacant for a few years and then turn it into a park, he'll know what I know about layoffs. If that should happen, and I hope it does, I hope he lives long enough to see politicians standing in their brand new park shaking hands and congratulating themselves on what a good job they've done getting rid of that eyesore financial district.
