48 Pa. transit workers still on job after jackpot

48 Philadelphia transit workers all still working after winning $172 million jackpot By The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA (AP) ' Four dozen Philadelphia transit agency workers who won a $172 million Powerball drawing are all still working and don't intend to change much about their lives despite becoming millionaires.

A pool of workers at the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority's headquarters scored the winning ticket in the April 25 multi-state lottery. They purchased the ticket at a newsstand across the street.

The group call themselves the SEPTA 48. They decided to take a one-time cash payout instead of installments. Split 48 ways, that amounts to a little more than $2.2 million each.

Bryant Vaders, of Philadelphia, says he still plans to pack a lunch every day. Daniel DeSantis, a 42-year SEPTA employee, notes that all the winners showed up for work the next day and are still on the job.
