The British bus driver lost his job because he was “too young”

In 1987 Tracy Scholes became the first female bus driver on a bus route in Manchester, northwest of Great Britain. After 34 years, the British woman lost her job – because she was too young to drive the latest bus model, according to the British newspaper “Guardian”.

Tracy Scholes is only 1.52 meters tall. To look in the outer mirror, she had to lean back – but her legs could no longer touch the pedals. The 57-year-old complained about this fact to his employer, the Go North West Bus Company. She was first released and subsequently fired.
