6:01 pm
welfare of the workers. i don't mind my obstructions. >> reporter: but most people disagree. 54% say workers should accept management's offer and kahlil eden gives his reason why. >> because you getting paid enough to make it so far. maybe you should get another job or go part time. >> reporter: tough words but with a second strike looming, many riders are tired of figuring out a plan b to get around the bay area. the poll shows many will drive likely clogging up the roads. only 11% will work from home. if bart strikes, alex says he will take a shuttle but isn't going to like it. >> you guys need to get your act together. fix this and don't go on strike. >> reporter: so we did a similar poll all the way back in august on this looming bart strike. honestly, the dial hasn't moved all that much since then. even back then, the majority of people favored management over
