A few nice blog for money images I found:

Now, lot of children are going to beg on the street for the christmas and the new year party. But this guy is different from the others. Instead of going to beg, he’s using his talent for fetching money

The “Capitalism is for the rich” sign that upset BART spinster Sam Singer isn’t a union sign

It is a Freedom Socialist Party sign

Update: Singer says it was a different union sign (though it might have been hand written like this one

(unlike Mr. Singer, the unions can’t carefully control their message – though he does get surprisingly sloppy on twitter – anyone can show up to a rally in a public space)

#BARTStrike: Union sign on news reads: "Capitalism is for the Rich." We know the ATU and SEIU are Out of Touch, but are they stupid?

And the wealthy Singer is pretty stupid to accuse the unions of being out of touch.

Update: he responds

@samsinger: @tigerbeat @SFBART: I work for my money, no one’s upset about that…thanks.

(I have a feeling if there were stories on how much he has been paid by BART since at least 2001, people would be angry)

The very same people who are angered by his spin on BART worker salaries (though they probably aren’t aware they haven’t had a raise in 5 years and actually gave back 0 million to BART) probably would be angry if they learned the total BART has paid Singer since at least 2001

Back in 2001, his rate was to 0 an hour (adjusted for inflation, far more than BART workers)

There was a ,000 payment in 2005 (and he may have been more after that)

He was paid ,000 a month to help spin the BART negotiations in 2009 (see last item)

Though BART’s on air talking head this time has been Rick Rice (how much are they paying him?)

And what is Linton Johnson doing these days? He was making 0,000 a year in 2011

And then there is BART management spending (which they don’t track digitally yet)

I do imagine Singer gets paid more by Chevron:

Some of Singer’s recommendations didn’t fly. For example, he suggested portraying Ecuador as “the next major threat to America.” But the company took much of his advice to heart.

He also defends the all male Bohemian Grove
