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

lose their civilian jobs this weekend as part of massive transit budget cuts.

"The way Transit is laying off these two individuals who are fighting for their country is totally

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

Transport Workers Union.
