Bus Driver Rodney Plummer Learns a Cynical Lesson: Good Deeds at Lunch Hour May Be Punished
For Plummer, 47, the loss of innocence began when he spotted two teens attacking Francisco Perez, 17, at a Times Square subway station. Plummer, who lives in Edison, N.J., with his wife, Mai, and their two children, got between Perez and his assailants. Only after police arrived did he realize his left leg and arm had been badly bruised. On orders of T.A. doctors, he stayed home, losing 11 days' work. On Feb. 29, he found that two weeks' pay—$1,400 after taxes—had not been deposited in his bank account. His February rent check bounced, and Plummer had to borrow lunch money for his 15-year-old daughter.
New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani calls the ruling "idiotic," adding, "This is one of the things that drives people crazy about bureaucracies." For Plummer, who is appealing the pay ruling—a process that could take a year—the price of heroism is just beginning to sink in. "My feeling," he says, "is that I'm being beaten up again."
