Pierce Transit Proposition 1 is another example of bloated, union-dominated government monopolies holding the public hostage.
Rather than negotiating with unions, Pierce Transit has created an impossible situation: Vote it down, and it cuts service, disabling thousands of those dependent on transit. Vote it in and the Pierce County sales tax becomes the highest on the West Coast, driving out retail income. It’s a “Heads, you lose. Tails, I win.” scenario.
Rather than pitting transit riders against the business community, Pierce Transit needs to reduce waste and renegotiate.
