The Price

Professional Teaching Artists in New York City probably spend more time on the subway than our neighbors. This year, again,  the MTA says we are all going to have to pay more money to ride. A fare increase means a signficant increase in the cost of doing business as a freelance TA, because most of our employers don't cover travel costs, and we travel a lot.

They should call fare increases what they are--taxes on working people.

Suddenly, a rescue plan. The cost of a monthly card is supposed to go from $81 to $89.  8 x 12 = $96.

$96 is approximately one mobile phone bill and a meal.
