First all congrats to Sarah Feinberg on becoming interim President of NYCT. It’s a tough and challenging position and I give her credit for taking it on even at an interim level.
But I don’t know how much she knows our jobs or how dangerous our jobs are when she exhibited unsafe behavior by putting on a MTA vest with her child strapped to her casually doing work on the L line platform.
In my opinion she minimized the true conditions thousands of women workers face who cannot bring their child to work for obvious reasons and lost promotions because of the MTA refusal to provide light duty work for expecting moms.
Also, her resume contains absolutely no experience in any capacity working in a transit worker title ever, unlike her predecessor.
It’s almost like the MTA would hire a hockey coach to coach a basketball team all because the hockey coach play a sport. Until they start to hire from within or from people who have actual experience working some of these rank & file positions, with a great moral compass, this company will continue to have issues on a executive level.
