PATH Workers Are Allegedly Sleeping on the Job. PANYNJ Inspector General Investigates.

New York Post reports, “PATH workers are snoozing away huge chunks of their regular shifts, using nap time to rack up big overtime pay, The Post has learned. ‘Everybody sleeps,’ an insider said. ‘Guys make big overtime by doing work for 40 minutes or an hour, then billing the Port Authority for four or five. That’s been going on for years.’” According to the article, the practice is now under investigation by the PANYNJ inspector general. The Post notes that the authority’s overtime costs last year amounted to $221 million, or 17 percent of total labor expenses.
