Should San Francisco Taxpayers Pay A Wall St. Style #FAIL Payout to Nat Ford? If Not, SIGN HERE.
Doesn't it piss you off when you, as someone who does Actual Work For A Living, hears about how banks and Goldman Sachs and Wall Street pay out "bonuses" to morons who created the Depression 2.0?
Doesn't it piss you off when you, as someone who does Actual Work For A Living, hears about how A Few City Management Types also get "bonuses" even though they totally screwed up the City we live in?
Doesn't it piss you off when you, as someone who does Actual Work for A Living hear about a screwed up Muni contract that pays operators not to work when if you did that you'd be fired?
Wait, you don't?
Then stop reading now. Because if you honestly think that losing bazillions in the private sector not only is OK but prepares you for the public sector, then you should really go read something else, and leave now.
If you're a taxpayer, a citizen, an owner/rider and you're sick of people who get paid to not show up to work, I urge you to sign this petition today saying "no more."
The rumor is that once the negotiations between the operators and Muni come to a close, Nat Ford will run away from the mess he's caused, put Muni in the hands of a "temp" Mayor, and yet, still get paid big pay, a ginormous pension (contributing to the pension crisis) and more. All because after all this time, he turned out to be nothing but a puppet for Prince Newsom and a failure who ruined Muni even more than it already was.
Before he even got hired I questioned the wisdom of a "get paid no matter what" contract and ironically the same people who rail on public worker unions justified this crap about "hiring the best person." Did we?
Sign the petition now to say "no Wall Street Bailout for Nat Ford" and at least put on notice Temporary Mayor Lee and the legion of candidates running for office we, the owners and riders of Muni, are watching this time.
And this time we're not missing a beat.
UPDATE: If you don't put your name on the petition, the usefulness of the petition is lost. I can't submit a list of "Name Withhelds" to the MTA and expect them to take it seriously.
PS: Not to toot my horn but when Nat Ford tried to challenge the Muni Death Spiral story last year, when challenged to prove even one point where we were wrong, he couldn't do it. Worse, he called anyone who dared talk to us "snitches." Six years ago, I thought you might do some good "Mr." Ford. Today, all I can say is take the stench of your demoralizing failure to somewhere else. Buh-BYE.
