Developments on the SEPTA labor front

Well, the city transit workers have authorized a strike. That doesn't mean that they've voted to start one, just to make it part of the armaments of their negotiators. Their current contract expires a week from tomorrow.

I feel for the problems of labor being squeezed from both sides by the economy and rising health costs, but every strike decreases the willingness of commuters to become reliant on public transit. Nobody wins. Let's hope they can work things out...
