As the recession continued, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority steadily chopped away at signs of hope for Bronx mother Sabrina Greenwood.
The mother of four had been working as a station agent, promoted to a supervisor and then demoted back to a station agent. She knew what the signs were: low revenue, cutting back “waste” as CEO Jay Walder said, and essentially MTA layoffs.
She survived the first major round of layoffs in mid-2010. Aug. 13, 2010, she wasn’t so lucky. This is her perspective of the pesty side of the MTA that most New Yorkers don’t see.
