MTA finally pays injured worker
Werner Schuler has a small home in Queens. And he credits the MTA for that fact.
“Honestly, New York City Transit has been very good to me. It’s afforded me to buy a little home here you know and a life that I never thought I’d really have,” Schuler said.
But Schuler's patience with the MTA is wearing thin over a long overdue workers comp payment. Schuler hurt his knee at the Stillwell Avenue station in Coney Island in 2008. He was out of work for 54 weeks. He won his grievance. But after more than six years, the MTA still hasn’t paid him all he’s due.
