Bus companies pay crap wages and push their drivers to the brink of exhaustion.
If you refuse to drive.. they threaten your job.
If a driver gets caught by the DOT driving over hours.. the DRIVER takes the hit.. not the Bus company. (the driver making $9 an hour is expected to keep his bus clean using his own supplies, drive within the law even if his company threatens him for refusing to break the law, and the police harass bus drivers for permits and fees and refuse them a place to park.
Washington D.C. is the WORST place to drive a bus.. Gestapo cops from 20 different agencies will make your life miserable.
Bus driving is the new form of indentured servitude.
Unsafe buses.. over-loading.. over-worked drivers.. lack of enforcement...it's a lose-lose for all involved.
