No yelling on the bus

I have read a lot of letters to the editor about bus drivers in the Durango papers, most not so nice. These drivers have to get a CDL license. Do you have one? Have you ever driven a school bus? Bus drivers are paid $14.75 an hour – 15% lower than national pay. Heck, dog walkers get $20/hr. for a dog.

Would all the complainers drive a school bus where kids are yelling and playing while you drive? Have you ever chained up a car, let alone a school bus? I think not.

Instead, thank bus drivers for protecting your kids and getting them home safe. For a lousy $14.75 an hour in all kinds of weather, all the attacks on them is spiteful.
