Description

Houston Chronicle reports that Metropolitan Transit Authority bus operators are "driving huge amounts of overtime." While "full-time operators earn no more than $33,000 in base salary," two bus drivers made more than $109,000 in 2000. "Seventeen more earned between $75,000 and $95,000...Indeed, at least 16 percent of all days worked by Metro bus drivers would violate and interstate safety standard if the rules applied to them...But government exempts itself from (federal and state) rules, and Metro has no self-imposed limits on overtime."
