In a recent meeting with the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, Rep. Troy Nehls (R, Texas) implied that Class 1 railroad workers are overpaid making an average salary of $137k/yr.
STB Chairman Oberman sets him straight saying railroaders truly do not make that kind of money and that railroad wages are not competitive with other industries.
TCU calls on all railroad workers to call Rep. Nehls office at (202) 225-5951. Tell him that A. Railroad workers are not overpaid. And, B. Railroad workers haven’t had a raise in 3 years because the railroads keep stalling.
