School bus drivers from the second largest school district in the United States led a noisy protest caravan through downtown Los Angeles on Thursday, demanding federal and state funding to help reopen schools safely amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The drivers from the Los Angeles Unified Schools District (LAUSD) were joined by other vehicles as they circled city hall and honked their horns.

“Until they get conditions safe, I prefer us to be at home,” said John Lewis, a school bus driver, who has been in the job for 30 years. “I miss work. I love my job, I love the students, the people I work with but I understand why we can’t be at work right now because it’s just not safe.”

Earlier this month, the Los Angeles teachers union and local education officials agreed on a plan for resuming online-only classes at the end of August. California’s powerful teachers unions strongly oppose in-person instruction without safety measures that could be difficult and expensive to implement.

Such safety measures would likely require additional funding from the state and federal government.

Austin Beutner, superintendent of LAUSD, who joined the protesting drivers and other school staff, said investment was needed.

“Spread the desks, stay apart, wear a mask, clean and sanitize, redo the air filtration system. We’ve done all of those things. We also need to test for the virus and provide contact tracing at schools because schools could become a Petri dish,” Beutner said.

“Unless we have a health crisis turn into an education crisis, we need to make sure the funding is there for schools,” he said.

    Union leadership continues to be under the spell of Democrats, and therefore globalists. That includes teachers and bus drivers. Rank and file teachers and bus drivers need to educate themselves about science and the plandemic and insist on a return to work without death-trap masks.

    The importance of these findings is that a drop in oxygen levels (hypoxia) is associated with an impairment in immunity. Studies have shown that hypoxia can inhibit the type of main immune cells used to fight viral infections called the CD4+ T-lymphocyte. This occurs because the hypoxia increases the level of a compound called hypoxia inducible factor-1 (HIF-1), which inhibits T-lymphocytes and stimulates a powerful immune inhibitor cell called the Tregs. . This sets the stage for contracting any infection, including COVID-19 and making the consequences of that infection much graver. In essence, your mask may very well put you at an increased risk of infections and if so, having a much worse outcome.
