Don't we all get 6 weeks paid family medical leave annually? Thank the overworked, underpaid SEIU transit workers for this. Work to get a ballot initiative for the next election as our elected representatives are too afraid of the unions to take action. Don't allow the SF Bay Area to be held hostage by union manipulations. Vote to ban transit strikes and make us more like NYC that values their economy more than we do.

I'm going to do everything to vote all unions gone! They are commies in uniforms who steal from the public trough.
