TWU: our members are facing huge job cuts
Author: Lackawanna484

Transport Workers Union John Samuelson said today that his members are facing "steep job cuts" if Congress and the President don't agree on a Covid-19 relief package by October 1.  The TWU represents about 150,000 bus and rail employees across the US.

Draw your own conclusions about:

  • Pre-existing corporate plans that are now being blamed on something else that starts with "C".
  • Regional economic trends, whatever the cause, like taxes.
