Class 1 Employment Up in August
Author: pt199

 Employment in August at Class 1 railroads rose by 2.26 percent over the same level of August 2021.
Figures released by the U.S. Surface Transportation board showed the railroads employed 117,014 workers, which was a 0.52 percent increase from July’s employment level.
All but one out of six employment categories registered month-to-month increases.

They were transportation (train and engine), up 1.05 percent to 48,760 workers; transportation (other than train and engine), up 0.96 percent to 4,716; executives, officials and staff assistants, up 0.79 percent to 7,900; maintenance of equipment and stores, up 0.5 percent to 17,410; and maintenance of way and structures, up 0.07 percent to 28,437.
Seeing a decline was professional and administrative, which fell 1.15 percent to 9,791 employees.

On a year-over-year comparison, five of the six categories saw increases including executives, officials and staff assistants, up 8.65 percent; transportation (train and engine), up 3.5 percent; transportation (other than train and engine), up 1.22 percent; maintenance of equipment and stores, up 1.19 percent; and maintenance of way and structures, up 0.36 percent.

There's also the matter of lower seniority people who will cash their back pay and head for the exit. No need to wait 30-35 years to maybe get a pension.
