bus drivers, train operators and other union workers are voting on a new offer from Metro Transit. An initial offer was rejected last month. It contained a wage freeze and increases in health insurance payments.

    The bus drivers should get a pay increase to keep up with the cost of living. You just cannot increase health insurance rates, and not offer a pay increase to help your employees to cover their cost increase, and still have a life. We all want to do more than just exist — we want to eat, maintain our homes and cars, go on vacation with our families, etc. I hope management will give their employees the same pay increases that they received.
