One of the largest
railroads in the world, the second largest
in Canada next
to CN. A major player in the transportation sector, this
company breaks profit records yearly, while treating
its burnt out workforce like garbage. Trains are regularly staffed by tired, overworked crewmembers. Hard working junior
employees are often rewarded for their hard work
and committment by being laid off or forced to work
200 km away.
On call 24/7, most railroad employees have a poor social life, with high rates
rampant at both hotels for the crewmembers and at home with the wives while their husbands are at work
. Pay is relatively poor for the hours worked: while many employees make $80,000 or more per year, they often log well
over 3000 hours of service, which puts them in the same payscale as a manager of 7-11.
