I like my weekend, I like the labor laws, I don't get more than a couple of paid holidays a year, and I have to be available even on holidays in the event of an emergency. What I don't like are work rules that protect the incompetent and the greedy. Why be able to get a sick day and then also collect overtime by working another day? I don't get that and I am sure a lot of others don't either. Why can't BART train new drivers? Because the union members know that if there is real competition that most of them would be replaced by harder working new workers. These work rules are why unions are dying. There is no support for unions outside of the unions and their political lackeys. I would work for BART non-union in a heart beat but I bet you there are not ten union members that would dare to do the same.
If even one of those jobs became available today, under the newly proposed BART board rules, there would be ten thousand or more applicants, TODAY. The union members are greedy, incompetent and lazy and I hope they all lose their jobs.
Yep. A lot of people erroneously think seeclickfix is part of Oakland's Public Works Agency and don't realize it is a multi-purpose tool to connect and engage citizens.

TRACK ISSUES IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD
Citizens vote on neighborhood issues, or promote more efficient community governance by instantly forwarding them to a person who might be able to help.
Neighborhood groups, elected officials and advocates monitor key issues, and publicly propose solutions on how to resolve them.
Governments and other entities responsible for the public space (such as utilities and property owners) become more accountable to the public by acknowledging problems and providing effective communication about solutions.
Media outlets use SeeClickFix to build upon citizen-driven news content and attract readership.
Fix a problem by publicly broadcasting the issue to the appropriate parties for resolution, working collectively to raise the profile of key concerns, or by taking direct action. Here are a few examples:
In Dallas, a thoughtful citizen reported a traffic light timing problem on SeeClickFix, and saw an immediate improvement in traffic flow after government officials watching the area took quick action.
In Philadelphia, an engaged citywide advocacy group used SeeClickFix to mobilize citizens to document instances of vehicle idling, leading to new initiatives to help clean the air.
Astute police officers in New Haven, receiving direct alerts on their BlackBerries from citizens reporting quality-of-life crime issues within their SeeClickFix "watch areas," have spearheaded a number of major arrests.
In Hartford, a local news outlet helped mobilize citizens to do something about speeding on their streets by tracking citizen-reported issues and writing a weekly "SeeClickFix" column about the citizen-generated content.
Now, imagine a world in which every resident feels empowered and can play an active role in their neighborhood. Imagine if everyone trusted and felt taken care of by their local government. We know that there are already a lot of involved citizens and hard-working local authorities out there. We seek to use the power of the internet to bring them closer together and make our neighborhoods better places to live and work.
