New York City’s largest union for school bus drivers is on strike today, disrupting transportation service for more than 150,000 students, including 54,000 special education students.

No worries, though! Nanny Bloomberg says the city will foot the bill for cab fare, MetroCards and mileage.

Not that it’s much help to special needs kids.

And taxi fare reimbursement isn’t enough to calm angry parents and others inconvenienced by the strike.

Reps from Local 1181 of the Amalgamated Transit Union say the strike is For the Children™, natch. The claim is that it would be unsafe for kids if drivers don’t have guaranteed job security. But many aren’t buying the trumped-up feel-goodery about child safety and are calling out the selfish union protectionism.

Selfish jerks? Please. Clearly their only concern is for the children.
