The Company - Laidlaw & First Student!
Laidlaw International Inc is a gargantuan publicly traded company based in Canada. They have operated tour bus companies (they own Greyhound), ambulance services, para-trasit companies and other types of transportation services. Laidlaw also has operated landfills and hazardous waste incinerators among many other activities. So if you thought they were some small time school bus operation; you were dead wrong. Laidlaw buys and sells companies on a regular basis; one of their specialties is privatization, many times at the expense of the workers. The list of links below represents a small general sampling of some of the information about Laidlaw. Hopefully, it should serve to paint a larger picture of what this company is all about.
