NEW YORK (PIX11) — The MTA apparently has a problem with employees sleeping on the job.

The New York Post reports that over the last four years, nearly 50 workers have been suspended for dozing off while on the clock.

Some of the workers were manning ticket booths, but others were subway operators and even bus drivers.

Punishments ranged from 20 day suspensions to being fired.

The MTA says that all employees are told from day one to make sure they come to work rested.
