Metro Atlanta school bus drivers wage battle for better pay, benefits

Green has lauded the drivers for what he calls their critical role in the district’s mission to educate its children. However, in recent years, drivers say they have struggled to make ends meet as they faced pay cuts and healthcare cost hikes.
