CTA Insider on "where have all the janitors gone?"
Recently a CTA employee contacted me to say he would like to contribute anonymously to this blog about what happens behind the scenes on the CTA. He (though I'm not sure it's a he) only requests that I refer to him as the CTA Insider. Here is his first tidbit:
Where did all the Janitors go?
The janitorial department is down to a skeleton crew on the Brown Line. Workers are being assigned to clean five stations per janitor, meaning on the evening shift there may be just two people on an entire line.
Some lines on a Saturday or Sunday have one person to cover everything. Subway is the same way.
