LA Transit Strike A Threat To Employment
"Bus and train rides account for only 4% of L.A. commuter trips. The 400,000 daily public transit riders tend to be the poorest of the poor.

''Elderly people like me are prisoners in our apartments, as if we are in jail,'' says Hee Pok Kim, 80, a retiree in Los Angeles' Koreatown."
