        \_ Yesterday's SFGate poll showed that 11% of the readers sympathize
           with the workers, 17% with the management, and 72% with the riders.
           \_ The millions the Koch Brother's spent are paying off. Workers

              now sympathize more with their masters than their own
           \_ The union train operators and station agents get, on average,
              $71k/yr base salary and $11k/yr overtime, and contribute $0 to
              pension and $92/mo for health insurance.
              \_ What do you make?
                 \_ I make more than that, but my employer is not prohibited
                    from replacing me with someone who would be willing to get
