That’s Gonna Leave A Mark

I’ve read that President Handsome Joe ‘Amtrak’ Biden says that he is going to push for the railroad workers to have their sick days, so I think we need to remind him about it.

    How many Republicans were “all aboard” for a most reasonable worker demands for paid time off and to prohibit punitive treatment for the temerity of getting sick?

    Oh crud. I thought they voted for it. Was this one of those “get 60 votes or forget it” deals?

      That’s what I’ve been wondering, too.

      I just looked it up; the answer is yes. They couldn’t get to 60 on the sick leave bill. https://www.npr.org/2022/12/01/1140123647/rail-strike-bill-senate
      “Senators passed the bill to force unions to accept a tentative agreement reached earlier this year between railroad managers and their workers and make an imminent strike illegal — without making any changes — by an 80-15 vote. They rejected a measure to offer paid sick leave, 52-43. Both measures required 60 votes to clear the Senate.”

        I just saw an argument that replacements covering for shifts need to go to great lengths to arrive at the designated train line.
        I take this as an argument that the union should be pushing for more employees in order to handle ‘sick’ leave coverage better.
