SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

First Student bus drivers, monitors and mechanics are holding a protest rally calling for a new contract that includes summer pay.

They gathered Wednesday morning outside of the company's main office demanding that First Student compensate them during the summer months.

About 500 employees are expected to lose unemployment benefits next summer after Georgia lawmakers passed legislation preventing them from collecting summertime unemployment.
