(Newser) – It's a job that might make you flush: Find easily accessible restrooms for Seattle-area bus drivers and get paid nearly $100,000 a year. Bus service provider King County Metro Transit is looking to hire a "comfort station coordinator," which comes with an annual salary as high as $97,000, depending on experience. Metro Transit spokesman Jeff Switzer tells KOMO TV in Seattle that the agency has a legal obligation to find access to bathrooms for the 2,600 drivers who keep the community moving. Washington state's Department of Labor and Industries cited Metro Transit last November after an audit found drivers weren't provided unrestricted access to restrooms and some wore diapers.
