Mr. Gates: Recently you created the Microsoft Connecter Shuttle to connect all your employees to your campuses in the Seattle area.

However you do not allow your Temporary Employees ride? Why Mister Gates? What are the Temps supposed to do? How can they conserve on gas or carpool?

Instead of whining about not being able to ride the connector you should hit your knees and thank god you have a job as many people are losing theirs....

MS since 1988: contractor (1988, 1998-1999, and now) and FTE (14 yrs ). I quit MS in Feb and was back 2 weeks later as a contractor with the SAME $. I now have less stress and hours so it's a toss-up. Just public bus it with your MS paid Metropass!

They give free bus passes... and the reason you don't ride the connector is becuase it is for the FTE's CSG's get free metro bus passes 'gimme a break' I was a CSG and I know that and personally I wouldn't want to share a bus with you either!

I'm sure on the flip side, they're glad to see Monal go. I'm sick and tired of seeing temps get paid more and still demanding the same benefits as employees. Nothing is stopping temps from carpooling.

The Temporary Employees should be helped to conserve on gas by their recruting company
