French bus company sues car-pooling cleaning women, wants to confiscate their cars!

Cleaning women working at the European Union get fed up over a shody bus service and start car pooling to save costs and the environment. Bus company gets upset and sues them for “unfair and parasitical competition” – demands they are fined and have their cars confiscated!

This is over a service where “we didn’t have the right to eat or even to speak” and instead of coming to get us at 9.30pm, the bus would arrive at 10.30pm. If you made any comment to the driver you’d get a mouthful of abuse.“.
