Permitting bong hits off the clock probably actually would help them out.

Florida school districts seek ways to attract more bus drivers, with anything but a decent pay rate.

Sorry, can't do $1000.  We're protecting our record profits, you see.  Best we got is $37 and we kick you in the balls.

Fuk that!! You'd have to let me drive with a joint hanging out of my mouth for me to take that job!

I'm sure this is in no way exacerbated by the fact that most school bus drivers are functionally part time, and need to pick up other work in the middle of the day between shifts.

The driver that took us poor kids from my elementary school to the boys and girls club was pretty cool though, he would gun it over speed bumps to see if he could launch the small kids into the roof, you could get some serious air if you were at the back of the bus behind the rear wheels.

There's that and the fact that you need a special license and pass a background check. The problem isn't just pay. Pinellas also has some additional restrictions that results in an increased need for routes over similarly sized districts.

Sat on a working group trying to find solutions to the bus and school bell time scheduling problems, which is why I know all that.

And don't underestimate having to transport middle school kids as a contributing factor to a bus driver shortage.
