MTA layoffs: Bus drivers fighting in Iraq War get rude ‘Welcome Home’


Two city bus drivers who were sent to war in Iraq and Afghanistan are getting pink slips instead of

yellow ribbons.

Sgts. Alvin Taylor and Anddy (Angel) Moreno, bus drivers called up to serve overseas, are set to

unpatriotic and unethical," charged Frank Austin, a division chairman with Local 100 of the

Transport Workers Union.
