THIS COULD LEAD TO BELL TOWERS AND AK-47S.

OMG WOMAN SRSLY.

STOP SIGHT-READING YOUR CHURCH MUSIC OUT LOUD WITHOUT WORDS.

AND STOP ROCKING IN YOUR FUCKING CHAIR AND MAKING IT SQUEAK WHILE YOU DO THE ABOVE.

YOU ARE MAKING ME CRAZY CRAZY CRAZY.

STOP OR I KILL YOU.

Strikes suck.

Any sympathies I may have had for the striking SEPTA employees disappeared the day I heard one of their representatives proclaiming the tragedy of their lives . . . since, you know, they haven't had a raise since last December.

My heart BLEEDS for you. No, really.

I haven't had a raise in three years. The university I work for is on a so-called "merit increase" system, which everyone knows is code for "even if you're doing a good job, we'll just give you a crummy evaluation and then we don't have to give you a raise, so there". There's no cost-of-living increases, either.

We pay into our health benefits, just like almost everyone else with a job. In fact, our benefits costs went up eighteen percent last year, with no raise to offset the higher deductions.

We pay our own transportation costs to get to and from work, and that's gone up as well, including the price of gas to get to a bus or train station. Again, no handouts coming our way to cover those costs.

Not only do we not get mandatory overtime, we don't get any overtime. We get comp days that we often don't even get to use.

I've got an idea.

Since you SEPTA employees think you have it so rough? How about we fire your asses and give the jobs to any of the thousands of people who are out of work and desperate just to get a paycheck? Think any of them will be whining about raises for a while?

Chew on that while you picket, you assholes.
