Totally valid bitch. But you need to know where to draw the line. Tortured by permanent staff? Nah, don't allow that. You're a temp. You know you're not going to stay long or ever be offered a permanent position. So own that. Permanent staff (that are not your boss) being shitty to you? Tell them to fuck off. No breaks? Illegal. Go take one. They yell at you for that? Who cares? Explain your position and don't worry about it. You can get away with a lot if you don't give a fuck. You're a temp worker so your skills are probably minimal. You're a dime a dozen. You can easily be replaced. But guess what? Shitty, contract jobs with no benefits are also a dime a dozen and they can easily be replaced. Find the least shitty one you can.
I think people need to keep in mind that being listened to is not the same thing as being agreed with. The activists who lost the vote keep saying that they weren't listened to. It's quite possible that they were listened to but not everybody feels the same way as they do.
Or, you know, you could walk the 5 minutes to Chebucto and grab the number 1 there. The reason the route is changing is because the number 1 regularly gets stuck in Bayers Road traffic. The goal of the Halifax Transit redesign is for a faster, more efficient system. Having the number 1 sit in Bayers Road traffic forever does not gel with that goal.
