Dozens of Georgia School Bus Drivers Go on Strike to Enforce Covid Rules & Higher Pay

Dozens of school bus drivers in DeKalb County, GA have been on strike since Friday morning. According to Channel 2 News, nearly 60 drivers called out sick Friday, Monday and Tuesday.

Many of the drivers told Channel 2 News that they went on strike to get the district’s attention, and it worked.

They want more enforcement of children keeping their masks on while riding the bus, higher pay, to know when a child with COVID-19 gets on the bus and to have plexiglass installed for their protection.

DeKalb resident Marckieth DeJesus: “MARTA bus drivers have it, Greyhound bus drivers have it, Mega Bus has it. Why don’t the schools have it?”

On the flip…
