Re "BART strike ban would be bad policy" (Another View, Oct. 26): San Francisco State Professor John Logan resorts to inflammatory and deceptive language as he struggles to explain why BART workers should be allowed to continue to hold an entire region hostage by striking.
They are not forced to work. If they feel under-paid, they are free to take their skill set and find employment elsewhere. They will then be replaced by one of hundreds of people who will rush to fill a job that requires a high school diploma and pays more than $80,000 a year, plus extraordinary benefits. The professor need not have bothered trying to defend the indefensible.
