While New York commuters deal with fare hikes, rats, delays...in 2018 Long Island Rail Road Chief Measurement Operator Thomas Caputo made a whopping $344,147 in overtime ALONE.This comes on top of his already generous $117,499 salary says a fiscal-watchdog group behind such information being released.
The explanation for this massive paycheck, Caputo and Caputo alone had certain skills needed to perform specific work he was assigned to. The MTA cannot explain how many hours worth of overtime he worked of what his overtime payrate was.
Of course Caputo quietly retired last month after 19-years of collecting checks.
We the people of New York have questions and demand an investigation!
