CTA Insider on platform security
Am I the only one wondering what exactly those Securitas employees do for a living?
On the Red Line Grand platform, an employee who ostensibly is supposed to be providing security sits on his/her butt way at the south end of the platform and DOES NOTHING!
The CTA Insider says: "Those are Securitas guards. They are a private contractor that the CTA pays $20 an hour. They turn around and then they pay their people $8.50. And they say PLATFORM SECURITY IS A PRIORITY AT THE CTA!!!???"
