The BARF System

The BART system in San Francisco has been periodically closed down with strikes, and in the end the transit authority agreed to pay the overpaid transit workers FAR more than competing agencies.

I say pay the workers $250 an hour each — then when the BART goes BK (in about a month), shut it down and mothball the system.

When the pressure to have a BART grows, reconstitute the system under new rules, new wage structure, new employees.

Problem solved, and message delivered.
