NEW YORK SUBWAY BOOTH WORKER TAKES A SNOOZE

It should be no surprise that New York subway booth workers' jobs
have changed since the phaseout of the subway token.  Here's an
article about one who got caught napping on the job.

"Rip van Wiggins has had a rude awakening. The MTA has fired station
agent Wayne Wiggins, 37, who earned $77,000 sitting - and sometimes
snoozing - in his booth, transit officials said.

"This should be a serious wake-up call for workers who believe
they can sleep on duty," NYC Transit spokesman Charles Seaton 
said."

"There are 3,400 station agents in the subways, who earn a total of
$170 million staffing the old token booths or working in a new role -
outside the booths - helping passengers."
