MBTA: “non-union members need not apply”

Update: T also using inmates.

If there was ever a metaphor for what is wrong with the T, this is it.

The MBTA is looking for union members only to shovel out the Red Line from Braintree to JFK.

The irony is Onion-like.

Universal Hub:

“Updated: Not just anybody can show up to shovel out the Red Line.

The MBTA is working with local unions to get lots of people working to shovel out the Braintree branch of the Red Line tomorrow.

The T contact the Boston Building Trades and the SEIU.”
