According to charts shown by Republican committee staff members during the hearing, Amtrak charges about $2 for a soft drink, but the cost to taxpayers is about $3.40 when labor is included. A $9.50 hamburger on the train costs taxpayers $16, the charts showed. Labor adds nearly 60 percent to food and beverage costs.
DQ here. I’m not so much upset about the train, as I am about the cost of decades of delay in actually doing anything to build it. As for paying for it, looks like I’m leaving California just in time.
