Caltrain employee pay goes up despite tough times

The Bay Area News Group obtained the documents.

With benefits added in, total compensation jumped 34 percent. That money would be enough to save service and prevent drastic cuts.

Salary information for the conductors and engineers was not available, as these employees also work for Amtrak.

Caltrain defends the pay raises, saying employees are spending extra hours on the rail line.
