Well, They don't have a status on being retired so I put down LE 30+
seeing I spent nearly 40 years on the railroad. Again, I was there I
know what happened. I supported ATC's actions. This was a time where
working with less became the norm. Seems that continues to be the norm.
As for Trump not being able to fire striking railroaders that's wrong.
The strikes I've been on over contract breakdowns it's POTUS that
allows if we can strike. POTUS can stop it anytime. If strikers refuse
he can fire them and call in the military. Military can't do much
these days they don't have railroad battalions anymore. Last time it
happened was during Truman. Read the RLA.
