    Doesn't the addition of all these jobs sound great? Fire all seasoned drivers, then don't promise to hire them back. Then, try to hire new bus drivers one month before school starts. Parents...remember when you first drove a car? Ice covered roads particularly tricky.... Hey, but new drivers can do it all more efficiently because they cost less money. Very well thought out! To all those bean counters in all WISD districts who have protected their own high end salaries, YOUR TURN IS COMING HOPEFULLY PRETTY SOON!!! Parents UNITE!
