What SEPTA Wants

The SEPTA strike is inconveniencing my household and when there are kids to be picked up by 6 p.m., it sometimes a serious inconvenience. And yet I support the SEPTA workers. Take a close look at their proposals. Two of the sticking points are medical insurance premiums and retirement presecription plan.

In today's Inky there is a description of the management and union proposals. Note these sentence in the union's proposals: "Management must agree to contribute on the same percentage basis" and "Management must contribute on the same basis."

That seems fair to me. If the workers must pay for medical insurance, management should as well.
