That's true, but you still need to know someone to get hired for maintenance and skilled labor. For management positions, it definitely comes down to who you blo... er, know.From what I've heard for maintenance and skilled labor at the MBTA, there is not a lottery but an actual job application. Followed by a written test, followed by a hands-on test, followed by an interview.
No, that was a typo on my behalf. Senators Kerry and Kennedy did sign an agreement in 2000 that capped the Big Dig cost at $5.7 billion. Since the actual cost ballooned to over $24 billion plus and still going up, they only underestimated (lied!) by about $20 billion.I see what you did there.
