Bus Drivers Protest

Sep 30, 2013

City of Detroit Bus Drivers and riders rallied downtown on Tuesday, September 17 to urge Detroit leaders to improve bus service and safety. A union spokesperson reported eight bus drivers have been hospitalized from attacks by passengers in the past nine months. He added: “People are mad [about late busses.] Drivers are stressed. They can’t take it....”

The public was told having an emergency manager would be about “speed.” It is with great “speed” that city services and life for workers are becoming worse. Protesting is the right step to take!
