PATRIOT LEDGER – T pays some to sit and do little

The weekend edition of the Patriot Ledger brings a front page story about one worker complaining about her workload at the T. Not too much work, too little.

T spokesman Joseph Pesaturo declined to provide information on Mendeleyev’s salary and the engineering payroll.
