Earlier today, a brief report officially announced what was already expected, Friday will be the day that 200+ station agents & 40+ token booths will be closed. WABC filed this brief report:
Hundreds of MTA agents are spending their last days on the job.
The MTA is set to lay off 202 station agents and close 44 token booths across the city Friday.
The layoffs were originally blocked by a judge last June.
Agency estimates indicate keeping the workers on the job cost the agency $49,000 a day in wages and benefits.
In these tough times, I feel for those who are about to lose their job. It is a shame that something could not have been done to save their jobs. I hope they are able to get on their feet & find employment soon.
