It will effect us the same way removing frontline employees from other corporations effects us: poor customer service.
Increase taxes, provide less services. 1990 all over again.

Yeah, I think mostly its last IN first OUT....

Regardless, its a shame for the entire country.... that if you have a job everything seems wonderful, and if you lose your job, you are at the other extreme.... can't make monthly payments and no healthcare etc.... its just too much of a hit in the QOL if you lose your job.

No he is not. Actually, I can't determine who is a worse employee..the useless Social Services dolt or the useful but non-caring LIRR staff.

Once your Access-A-Rides end, you might be using the LIRR. I hope you have a good experience and enjoy the quality service.

I don't even know what Access-A-Rides are.


Have you considered going on meds?

It's about time civil servants feel the economic pain. It will be good for them.
So no civil servant has made accommodations for government's inability to balance their budgets? Really??

That reminds me of a term used by Europeans to describe the living conditions in the USA: It's a "winner take all" society ... but who cares what those know nothings living in *$$EW^%@# social democracies think! (sarcasm)

LMAO!!! Funny!
You should have the German's in to audit you as well, since they have to cough up all that support to those who excel at spending what's not theirs.
