    First of all his salary isnt the reason New Jersey is broke..second it doesnt say what his position is with the Dept of transporation, he could be a supervisor or have a specialty job that requires college or special training.
    He was fired illegally and hes getting back pay for the time he was fired illegally perfectly appropriate in my mind. The average teacher makes less...thats what leads me to believe hes a supervisor and not a bottom line employee

    Public Union wages I guess. Aren't taxes sky high in NJ and weren't they on the verge of going belly up?

    $86,110-a-year to drive a bus seems like a dream job. I bet he also has excellent benefits too.
    Not trying to start a fight over public unions here in this thread. Just making an observation.

    Sorry, I've never had to use public transit in my life. I thought he was a bus driver. What's a conductor? A train driver?

    A conductor is responsible for train operation and safety...they are not engineers...but its not an entry level job either

    he's a coordinator, whatever that means. my point is that you're bitching about salary when you don't even know what his job consists of, and salary was never the thrust of this thread. seems most people don't think he should have been fired, neither do i. is he an ass? yep, but he did it on his own time.

    I don't think he should have been fired

    I'm glad he got rehired

    I thought I remembered that he was a driver from back at the time of the incident

    I found out I was wrong and he is a conductor per the AP

    I still think he is probably over paid.

    Not sure how much of an ass I think he is. If I remember right, he was only burning pages that called for violence. Besides... the first amendment and all that the Imam was touting, doesn't just apply to him.
