MTA Chairman Jay Walder's Golden Parachute!!!

It truly sickens me when this jerk off is the highest paid public employee in the state maybe even the country. He continues to make statements in the daily news about to Pete Donahue, about how we have rules that effectively allow us to not work while still getting paid. I always thought the head of a company would like to make his employees look good since we represent the MTA to the public because we are the ones they see and interact with on a daily basis. I would have more respect for this guy if he said he would give back his $60,000 annual housing stipend and cut his salary bye 10% since he's trying to save the MTA money and keep fares and service reasonable to the customers. Yet he want's to cut the throats of S/A's , B/O's ,cleaners and anyone else he decides to put in his radar. This guy is grossly over paid, yet he continues to bash us TA workers for trying to make ends meet. While his housing stipend is more than alot of TA workers make annually.

I agree 100%!! If I was in his shoes, I would take a paycut too in order to try to help out the middle class. As far as I am concerned, he is very shelfish.

Pete Donahue would never do a story about Walder's compensation package because Walder is giving the Daily News plenty of "material" that sells papers, gets the riding public rallying against transit workers, encourages physical assaults against front line employees (b/o's, t/o's and c/r's) and diverts attention from the laying off of hourlies who are the eyes and ears of NYCT.

 

Donahue will never bite the hand that feeds him.

 

Jay Walder is Satan to every hourly MTA worker.

Hey Will just think if they really are going to lay you off, this would be the ultimate FU you could give them...

 

Use all that free time they gave you to put these on every street corner.

 

Walder is a jerkoff plain and simple and a lot of people have now said it. That golden parachute should be ILLEGAL and challenged in the court system by the TAXPAYERS who never authorized such a corporate perk for a man who is at the end of the day, still a CIVIL SERVANT as he is on the taxpayer payroll.

I was told by someone who is in finance that what Walder is getting is far less than what a lot of CEOs get around the country. Think about that for one sec.. That's just sick.
Most CEO's don't deserve the compensation they are getting all CEO's should be paid based on performance and experience if you have a history of being a **** up you deserve far less as far as walder goes he is a PUBLIC SECTOR CEO so what those other CEO's are making I persume MILLIONS he should not be making anwhere near what they PRIVATE SECTOR CEO's are making and they don't even deserve that

It's true. The finance industry is full of crooks. 41% of the US economy is finance now = bullshit. That needs to go down and we need to stop importing cheap foreign shit and providing for ourselves, all this "costs more" whining be damned. Things would cost less if we 1) made them here 2) paid executives less 3) didn't trade them in finance related deals before they reached market (which drives the price up) and 4) slapped tariffs on foreign goods to encourage our people to buy American.

CEO's should also be REQUIRED to work two weeks a year in a "front line" title in their company so they get a clue what the f*** really goes on. I'd LOVE to see how Walder treats his job if he had to be a T/O for two weeks and he ran a red signal and had to take the pee test and get bitched at by an angry TSS or supt, or someone jumped in front of his train, and then a week and a half later he goes back to the board room. I bet you it would give him the kind of perspective he's never had in his silver spoon fed life.

I laughed when I read this but I definitely agree that should be mandatory

ABC had a show like that a few months ago called "Under Cover Boss". I don't know how much of it was pure BS, but some of the bosses were told that they should be fired (this was said by employees who didn't know they were "supervising" their boss). I would love to see Walder humping track or cleaning the roadbed. Hell, have him spend a week with the crews that clean the sump rooms around the system. While yes this guy is the boss and he should make money reflecting that, but he gets too much.

Another one of (MTA)'s secret fun facts, lol:p

He has been hired by New York, he personally took a salary decrease and is doing two jobs, so he should get this if it is near the salary and benefits as WMATA, Septa, NJT and Boston {T}'s CEO/Chair... BTW, the (MTA) is the largest T/A system of the USA so no wonder...

 

The man should be paid 200k, tops with no perks. His title as head of the (MTA) itself should be enough to puff up his resume so forget the money aspect. FYI he has one job. It's to slash payroll. Look at his history in London. Nothing else. Not to improve your ride, hold the fare down, SAS, ESA, whatever. The capital program has nothing to do with him, period, so don't even go there. When the new governor takes office he's toast. The new governor could appoint his father,(Coumo), Betty White, or Derek Jeter to run the (MTA) but the capital budget won't change and I bet they'd do a better job vis-a vis the public and with the employees. BTW between The Daily Snooze, The Post and Uncle Fester, I wonder who's doing what to whom? They all seem to be out to screw the employees and the riding public. I also think there should be a joint session of the NYS legislature with locked doors and Sheik Omar and Osama providing the floor show with suicide bombers. Kill 2 birds with 1 stone, so to speak. Then we can start with a clean slate. Just my 2 cents, partially in jest.

I can care less what other CEO's of major Transportation Systems are making we are talking about NY are you Walders Confidential Secratary Level 1 because it seems as if you are making a case as to why he deserves his compensation Package if you know the History of the (MTA) the Chairman position was/is an unpaid position Dale H. Hemmerdinger was the Chairman his poistion was an unpaid position while Lee Sander was the CEO a paid position

Hahaha yes! You're finally starting to sound like me :( :cool:

 

No, I feel there should be limits not that you should out right take from the rich and give to the not so rich though things such as high taxes. There is no reason he needs $5000 a month for housing. Have him live in a decent area but if he wants anything better he should pay for it, I know this guy can't be poor. Also, why reward him for doing a bad job. Treat him like all the regular working people who get nothing if they are fired. He wants the unions to cut back, maybe he should get off his high horse and lead by example. I doubt he actually has that much work to do and his pay should reflect that.

Pete Donahue is a class trading rich man's whore. Walder gets all that money because he is good at what he does,screwing the working class. He doesn't even care what we think about him. Furthermore Walder and all those in power know we are all wage slaves and we can't just get up and walk out of our jobs without serious consequences. That is the beauty of their system,work hard all your life,make someone else rich,die,get replaced.

The wealthy all have these privileges. We pay, as taxpayers or customers who use their products (including sometimes not by choice, as in when an employer provides only one type of insurance), for their country club memberships, private jets, luxury accomodations, parking passes, housing stipends, "business meals" (which are only conducted at expensive places), personal cell phone bills...you name it. It's not just folks like Walder and there are a lot of them out there. Golden parachutes are a standard perk for any executive in any institution or company. That's a sad state of affairs, particularly considering the rest of us get nothing for getting fired "without cause."

 

They need to have less. Not because I believe everyone should be equal in economic status (Note: I really, really don't), but because it has gotten so out of hand that they have become a burden to the rest of society and 99% of us suffer so that 1% can live like kings.

 

All I say is that they need to be brought back down to earth. And that means Walder too. All of them.

Comparing apples to oranges apparently is a valid argument. Outside of both being fruit, I wouldn't even waste my time on the toilet listening to a justification of Walder's benefit package.

 

By any chance, does Pete Donohue moonlight on this site?

I'd love to swap his parachute out and put a Jack-In-The-Box in his backpack, and have him bail and survive on that. All he's doing in engaging the (MTA) into a free fall, with the revenue workers pushed out of the plane with steel weights strapped to their backs and parachutes made of taped-together pink slips, while administration jumps at will with parachute packs made of satin, plush arm straps and parachutes spun of silk. I don't even think the suit and ties hit the ground - I'm pretty positive that limos open sunroofs to let management land in style and comfort without having to stress a hard fall from grace.

Here are a few of the best criticisms of Pete Donohue that anyone will ever read:

http://transblog.grieve-smith.com/?p=58

 

Talk about a union-bashing conservative who writes little more than anti-labor editorials and fails to remain objective throughout his articles, his opinions are consistently unsubstantiated, pointless and entirely subjective. The Daily News was the last non-Red rag in the City, but it's become an Elephant manifest, ironically scripted by the biggest typewriting jackasses around. Pete Donohue is no exception, essentially being Jay Walder's Flava Flave-esque hype man for our Public Enemy.

 

I'm sick of labor unions being bashed left and right by sweatshop supporting bigheads who know nothing of sweat and grime. Eradicating the civil service process, represented titles and pensions is not going to increase employee morale nearly as much as they'd like to think. Resorting to scab labor will only result in excessive turnover, poor employee performance in which the safety of the public and the quality of service will be the biggest compromises and the formation of an oligarchy.

 

The wealthy all have these privileges. We pay, as taxpayers or customers who use their products (including sometimes not by choice, as in when an employer provides only one type of insurance), for their country club memberships, private jets, luxury accomodations, parking passes, housing stipends, "business meals" (which are only conducted at expensive places), personal cell phone bills...you name it. It's not just folks like Walder and there are a lot of them out there. Golden parachutes are a standard perk for any executive in any institution or company. That's a sad state of affairs, particularly considering the rest of us get nothing for getting fired "without cause."

All I say is that they need to be brought back down to earth. And that means Walder too. All of them.

 

I love your posts. Always on point and definitely accurate portrayals from someone in the know.

 

Should the US revert to the type of monarchy that we rebelled against to found this great country? That's where we look to be headed, in a theoretical sense. We have become a plutocracy cloaked by the misleading title of a "Democratic Union," in which the voice of the people is a mute one and Capitol Hill has lost its original cause. We're living a feudal system in which we've become the serfs while nobility inherits their wealth strictly through corruption and without any true rationalizations. I'd love to have these people brought back down to earth so that they could land in a bed of roses. However, let them feel the thorns and see how their enjoyable the treatment of their moneymakers is.

Pete Donohue has a user account on this forum. He registered in 2008 but doesn't post only reads once in a while. I would love if he came in and defended himself. :eek:
