ABSTRACT
The article features a transit strike in New York City in 1980. The effects of the strike include: runs on bicycle parts, depleted stocks of track shoes, and crowds swarming across the Brooklyn Bridge. Two aspects of the strike deserve national attention. The first is the utter recklessness with which public employees break the law. The second question raised by the strike concerns the criss-crossing dollar.
