MTA Station Agents don’t do anything anymore. They don’t handle money. They don’t give out tokens. They don’t even leave their booth to help when a customer is sliced open by a saw on the station platform. They don’t do anything other than stand around in their little burgandy vest, and occasionally push a little button in their little booth to let people with strollers into the station. Yet they make more money than I do.
So, would it kill the MTA to put a goddamn plastic snow shovel in every subway station and make the station agents SHOVEL THE STAIRS FROM THE STREET?
