Skip to comments.Cuomo: MTA workers’ sky-high overtime is theft

This is about stealing. This is about fraud. This is about people saying they work and charging the taxpayers when they didnt work. Its stealing. Its criminal, the governor said during a news conference at his midtown Manhattan office. So this has nothing to do with overtime. It has to do with theft and fraud, and thats criminal.
...Recently retired LIRR employee Thomas Caputo claimed he worked an additional 3,864 hours to rake in $344,147 in overtime pay in 2018 for a grand paycheck of $461,646, according to the Empire Center.
Another LIRR worker, Marco Pazmino, put in for 4,157 overtime hours, quadrupling his $55,000 yearly salary.

Performance drops after 40 hrs, consecutive 100 hr weeks equal near zero performance; sleeping.
Living wage como. Living wage.
Let's just say he works EVERY day of the year. 4,157/365 means he put in an ADDITIONAL 11.4 hours EVERY day.
Arrest his ass immediately for fraud.
This from the man whose top aide was convicted of two counts of fraud, and one count of bribery.
These are closer to 120 manhour work weeks or 17 manhour days if working 7 days/wk. (add 40 manhr to the overtime reported, but then again, time and a half and double time rates may have accounted for some of these, so probably steady 12+ hrs daily with no days off.)
Shouldn’t be hard to catch him. Poor guy HAS to be exhausted from working so many hours /s
Wow, after almost 62 years on this Earth Cuomo discovers the awesome power of arithmetic.
In other words, its Democrat SOP.
Basically, Cuomo is angry that this person was stupid and greedy enough to be caught. Now there will be heat all over the place...for a day or two.
Appears to be hours worked, not premium time hours.
Pazmino who has worked for the railroad since 1985 made the extra moolah by putting in for 4,157 hours of overtime, along with 1,688 hours he worked at his regular $35-an-hour rate, the MTA revealed Monday.
That works out to an average of 22.4 hours a day from Monday to Friday or 16 hours a day, 365 days in the year.
The MTA couldnt say how many hours Pazmino had logged in a single shift but noted weekend tours can last up to 55 hours during an outage.
Since the pension is calculated from the 3 highest years of wages, these workers make these wild claims so as to buff up their retirement.
Amazing a simple ticket sales person makes so much money.
Cuomo has only to blame his socialist paradise
Yep; with big pension retirement income guess what the first thing they will do? Move to Florida or a state with low taxes and cost of living....
Since the pension is calculated from the 3 highest years of wages...
Cuomo stole $600 million when he ran HUD. It bought him the governorship.
the first thing they will do? Move to Florida or a state with low taxes and cost of living....
Just because they are crooks and schnooks, they may not all be total idiots?
so probably steady 12+ hrs daily with no days off.
“Well did he ever return, no, he never returned,
“And his fate is still unlearned.......”
Ever heard of good management at a government-run agency? Me neither.
Really is a sad story here. After WWII, all of the privately-operated transit companies were under attack by the government via burdensome taxation and regulation. First to be taken over were New York’s subways; then when this got to critical mass at the interstate level, the private railroads on Long Island and upstate NY were basically forced to either operate passenger trains at subsidy or turn them over to government agencies including their property. Fabian socialism at work.
