Facebook bus drivers voted Wednesday night to unionize, looking to get a better deal out of the long hours they spend shuttling tech workers around.
USA Today reports these drivers make somewhere in the neighborhood of $18-$20 an hour. In a place like San Francisco, it can be hard to make ends meet on that kind of money.
Their passengers, meanwhile, are most likely better off. PayScale says software engineers in the bay area make a little more than $101,000 a year, on average.
