The New York City metro system is a massive, bloated bureaucracy that pays people who don’t work for the agency and lacks the ability to track down its employees, according to its interim president.
Interim NYC Transit president Sarah Feinberg tried to create comprehensive organizational chart to track the organization’s 70,000 employees and help cut spending, she told the New York Daily News. Despite being the department’s leader since March, nobody has provided her with a breakdown of metro employees.
“There are people who do not work here who we are paying,” Feinberg said, according to the Daily News. “It’s crazy … I absolutely believe there are a lot of people wandering around and no one knows who they report to.”
Feinberg added: “I’ve been here four months. … We’ve been talking about ‘transformation’ and consolidation the entire time.”
