A week ago, I wrote a small article giving an overall assessment of Pierce Transit's finances. In the analysis, wages of employees were the major focus and greatest share of overall expenses throughout the organization. However, the numbers from the Transit Development Plan showed that expenses in wages were rising much faster than the project rise in sales tax.
This week, The News Tribune has an excellent article all about the issue of wages at Pierce Transit. In the article they discuss all the aspects of Pierce Transit wages and about potential staff reductions in management versus potential reductions in bus operators. The article is a great read, and I don't have anything to add, so I'll stop typing now.
