Are city school bus drivers being ripped off?

April 18, 2019

A headline in the April 20, 2019 edition of the Free Press was captioned, "Tucker: City school bus drivers lose money on field trips; long hours unsafe." Lonnie Tucker, head of the bus drivers association, shows how city drivers who carry students on field trips out of the city actually lose as much as $40 a day to help the schools while the system pockets the profits at their expense. This podcast with Lonnie Tucker explains how some school board members don't seem to care how they are being cheated and how the system takes advantage of the drivers.
