Bus Companies Want Their Pound Of Flesh

'I wouldn't do any work for them, if you paid me,' said a bus company executive to me. 'They pay less than half price they are getting, want you to put in more hours than you are contracted for, pays the drivers rubbish wages and makes a bloody fortune.'

'Ah,' I sighed and looked down at my shoes. It is a familiar cry, I have heard so often over the years. The bus industry seems, at times to be a cutthroat industry and when it comes to sub-contracting, the knives are often out.

I guess it will never change.
