TTC worker gets no thanks after 31 years on the job

What happens when you work for the TTC for 31 years and don't even get a thank-you or goodbye on your last day? You post this video to YouTube of course. In what has become just the latest PR nightmare for the world's favourite transit system, now-TTC retiree Ron Mitchell's 4 minute video rant calls out both the TTC union and management for "not giving a crap" about their workers - including those like him who have essentially given their life to servicing the needs of Toronto commuters.

According to The Star, the oversight isn't standard practice at the TTC but was instead just a product of miscommunication during the holidays. TTC Spokesperson Brad Ross says the TTC has already reached out to Mitchell to try to make the situation right.
