My uncle owns his own business, he is doing pretty well, and I could run if I wanted, but I couldn't spend that much time away. He doesn't have any kids at home, I would go nuts. Bet you don't regret going to Rocknroll huh?

Fuel was $1.50 then, Its $4.00+ right now and they are still making the same money! Any trucker who cant stop will drive as slow as the law allows them to. So stock up on a few thing the stores will have getting goods for a while. This is the most Fired up I have ever heard these guys, They are for real!! They Deserve a raise, I watch my mom and pops struggle all the time!

I think there is no reason why they shouldnt get a raise...They run long hours, prices are up on everything, kids today are requiring more money to go to school and go on trips for school, They rarely see thier families trying to make a living.

I have several friends that work at US Foods, PFG, Budwiser and for MillerLite...Sometimes they do pull off the wall hours just to make it to places on time.

The plan is STUPID this is the way i see it was planned


"hey bubba on wednesday we aint gonna drive no more till we get more money and if we got to drive we gonna go slow heck 5MPH that way we will use more fuel and it will cost us more money and time. And the best part is we aint gonna get anything out of it just like the last time we tried this but hey we stupid enough to try it again so hop on the CB tell anyone you can can"


the problem is prolly only 1 out of every 20 truckers will do it just like when they tried it 3 years ago and it will flop and the people that did do it will be screwed trust me while some people are being serious about this and think it is gonna make a difference other people and companies are sitting out there and cant wait till wed cause they will get a shitload of extra business
