The only reason why NORFOLK SOUTHERN is acting like they promote social distance and cleanliness is because when all this comes out in the wash , they don't want to get sued.

I think that its time to get rid of any ideas of seniority. I have seen younger guys that did a great job get put on the street simply because they didn't have quite as much time as other guys. The guys who kept their job might have been here for... — read more
