Hazard pay isnt enough, the city and the ata think that 50 cents an hour is hazard pay, they won’t do anything about installing barriers or protective equipment other than thinner than paper masks that come from China that are probably worthless. The cities response to their own people is pathetic and dangerous. Unless you’re management who have been working from home since March....

For bus drivers, Covid 19 is the least of their hazards.
Hoe about the riders?
At least the virus probably isn't drunk and high and carrying a stolen gun.
