You need to get over yourself and your assertion that someone who disagrees with you is brainwashed. And I re-iterate that a huge number of people would happily do this work for 45k. No doubt there are already a number of people doing more or less the same job for a lot less. And there was no call for privatisation from me. But there is an expectation that comparatively highly-paid workers in a loss making organisation should expect to take a salary cut if they want to retain their jobs. And that expectation should not only apply to private organisations.
Whether knowingly or otherwise, your statement that "if this was a private company then it would be bust by now and everyone would be out of work" is basically mouthing propaganda from privateer shills - Shane Ross, Sean Barrett, all the usual suspects.
The reality is that a decent transport system cannot be run as a profit-making private corporation. The French and Germans realised this decades ago, which is probably why they have the best transport networks in the world - and almost entirely state-owned.
Your argument therefore fails at the first hurdle.
But, hey, congrats on falling, hook, line and sinker for the divide and conquer strategy being pushed - now more or less openly and in plain sight - by the ruling class.
