MTA chief Ford among thousands given temporary pink slips 

Of the deluge of pink slips handed out recently by Gavin Newsom, one found its way to a pretty heavy hitter among city employees.

Nat Ford, the executive director of the Municipal Transportation Agency, has been given his walking orders — at least symbolically — as part of the Mayor’s plan to fire 17,400 city employees and temporarily rehire the overwhelming majority of them on a reduced workweek.

Unlike some of his colleagues in the public sector, Ford, who recently took a pay cut, probably doesn’t have to worry about having his hours shortened, since he’ll likely be working around the clock to help fix the MTA’s $56.4 million budget shortfall for the upcoming fiscal year.
