A bus driver strike began in Doha this week, when drivers at three private schools in Doha refused to transport thousands of children from school to homes.
The schools impacted by the strike include the Cambridge School of Doha, Cambridge International School for Girls and Doha Modern Indian School (DMIS), who are all under the Al Taleb Group.
Doha News reports that bus drivers have told local newspapers that they are striking for better pay and treatment. An Asian driver said they earn QR1,200 ($329.63) to 2,800 a month, the report added.
The current strike has left parents and schools perplexed on how to arrange transportation for their children.
