Matthew Yglesias: BART strike: Here's how to think about it.:
The recent strike of Bay Area Rapid Transit workers looking for a raise has prompted a fascinating window in the (often-dark) souls of privileged Bay Area high-tech workers. That, in turn, has prompted an outpouring of self-righteousness from east coast writer types about the evils of the privileged Bay Area high-tech workers. But at the end of the day, a strike at BART or any other mass transit agency isn't about privileged high-tech workers it's about the mass transit system.
