So let's get this straight: the Lifeline pass, which Muni says will ease the burden brought on by its own incompetance, is only available for the working poor to purchase ... while they're at work? Hmmm, and we wonder if there'll be extremely long lines and wait times, too. We can't wait to start hearing stories about people getting fired from their minimum-wage jobs because they had to take a long lunch in order to buy the bus pass that would get them to work. "Vicious cycle of poverty," what's that?
