Overtime is the latest culprit in the the continuing list of stuff that's costing the MTA a boatload, with employees of the LIRR taking the most home. According to data on SeeThoroughNY, some employees were earning $100,000 to $200,000 over their base salaries in overtime. For example, Michael P. Castro earned $156,252 over his $72,100 salary as a senior analyst. The MTA's inspector general is looking into the LIRR's overtime rules, saying in a statement, "Our focus is on continuing to attack our cost structure to find reductions across our agencies including reducing overtime across the MTA." Similar problems have been troubling the Port Authority, which reported $15 million more in income spending last year. A million here, a million there, and pretty soon you're talking real money!
