Throwing drivers under the bus
Greater Wellington Regional Council says it seeks best value for money when awarding the new contract for running our buses.
I wonder how it will measure ‘‘best value’’.
There is a lot more to being a bus driver than managing the controls.
For passengers, especially if they are visitors or have children in push chairs or lots of luggage, it counts a lot to have a friendly and helpful Grant Nisbett and is obviously psychic because he can tell us what moves the All Blacks are about to make before they happen, and often very wrong.
Why does it take a sideline reporter to tell us who is coming off the bench when the main commentators can see everything either live or on screens in front of them?
The two presenters on football’s Euro 2016 can tell us in a more professional way all we need to know. driver. I would imagine it takes a special skill to be the driver of a bus full of children.
Our bus drivers are some of the key people making Wellington a friendly and efficient city. On top of that, it is a highly responsible position to have the lives of a bus full of people on Wellington’s difficult streets.
‘‘Best value’’ involves far more than bean counting. back and forward several times, and have British citizenship.
In these periods of time, I have seen the British way of life destroyed by endless, it seems, immigration, from everywhere.
Most British people will tell you they have had a gutsful of the endless stream of these people, some legal and many illegal entering the country.
Many of these immigrants are coached by people and told what they are entitled to and how to go about getting it when they are successful in getting in.
Of course, as with any election, it is likely most people won’t have a clue what they are voting for, but I would wager those voting for ‘out’ did so on the basis of immigration.
The thing is, many of these people are not refugees, but
I think it is nothing short of exploitation that Go Bus drivers don’t even receive the living wage.
The council must make it obvious it values our drivers by ensuring that they continue to receive at least the $20.97 an hour they presently get paid.
The council is responsible for far more than managing the money. Petone [abridged] financial immigrants, wanting a cushier life, at the expense of the people in those countries.
I just hope the politicians in Britain have the foresight to make the exit work and rule for the benefit of the British people.
