A bus driver met an untimely death after allegedly being overworked by the bus company Bataan Transit.
The victim's brother-in-law took to Facebook to share the tragic story.
KAMI learned from a report that the driver worked for one month without any day off.
What the Facebook user lamented was that they were just given P10,000 as compensation because the driver was still "new" to the company.
They were even the one expected to shoulder the burial expenses.
The post of the deceased's relative was:
"Calling the attention of BATAAN TRANSIT MANAGEMENT. AYAN PAGMASDAN NINYO MABUTI ANG BAYAW KO…10k lang ba ang halaga ng buhay ng mga driver nyo jan? Pagkatapus nyong pagtrabahuin ng almost 1 month na walang day off ang bayaw ko at sa loob lang ng bus ninyo pinapapatulog tpus sasbihin nyo kesyo bago plang ang bayaw ko kaya yan lang ang halaga na maitutulong nyo?
