BART Strikes Again! Commuters Are Angry!
The workers for BART failed again to come to an agreement with management. So they went on strike again. Just a little over four months of there first strike in July. Most of the commuters that take BART into
Francisco, Oakland, from the out lining areas are angry.
I have a friend that takes BART from Berkeley Oakland to Fremont and then takes the bus to . She told me her commute today is
horrible. She had to get up three hours earlier to catch the bus, 4 transfers
later and still got to work late. I could see why commuters are angry. I think
that the BART employees are being
unreasonable. They are fortunate they have a job. There are a lot of
people who have been looking for a job for years. A Milpitas man was arrested for throwing a
traffic cone at a picketing BART striker. If BART employees don't come to an
agreement then, it could get more violent. Oakland
