Was sleeping air traffic controller Reagan's fault?

March 27, 2011

I wonder if the negligence of the air traffic controller suspended for sleeping on the job is not a delayed consequence of Ronald Reagan's busting of the air traffic controllers union 30 years ago("Sleeping controller suspended," March 25). Why was the controller working four consecutive overnight shifts? Did he have a choice? These questions are especially pertinent now during a concerted attack on collective bargaining, which protects both workers and the public they serve.
