Bus drivers in Paraguay - level 2

Bus drivers in Paraguay - level 2

05-09-2013 06:00

A group of bus drivers from Paraguay were fired from their jobs. They want their jobs back and to get them back they decided to do something quite extreme.

They nailed themselves to a wooden board. They have nails in their hands. It is very painful. They hope that their former employer will give them their jobs back.

The employer wants to give them the jobs back but only to five of them. But the bus drivers won't stop until all eight of them have their jobs back.

Difficult words: nail (attach with a long and thin metal thing - nail), former (the one before).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
