I cannot believe the amount of money and benefits the toll takers earn.

I know people who have gone to trade schools and have to be certified by the state for their skill who don’t make that kind of money. Toll taking is a $10 per hour job at best and as for their health insurance, which they don’t contribute at all, they should join the rest of the world and pay at least 50 percent.

I say abolish the Maine Turnpike Authority and the union and have one toll booth in Kittery for incoming traffic only.

The people of Maine have been abused long enough.
