It’s no picnic working in public service. For a great many MTA employees, it can mean a split shift that plays havoc with sleep patterns. Lots of time away from the family. Appeasing customers who might want to take their frustations out on you, yet still remaining a professional through all kinds of challenges in all kinds of weather. And all this, despite what all kinds of critics might say.
Once a year, though, it is a picnic. For a brief time on Wednesday, May 8th, MTA employees celebrated “State Employee Recognition Day” as proclaimed by Governor Martin O’Malley. It was an opportunity to celebrate our service to the traveling public – our dedication to making sure that every day, we do our level best to help hundreds of thousands of riders get to and from work, school and play safely, quickly and conveniently.
We appreciate your allowing us this moment to share our pride in the service we provide. So thank you. And now for us, it’s back to work!
