What makes you think they run long hours. Leagally they can't run more than 10 hrs per day or in excess of 500 miles per day. I know lots of people who work longer hours than that.

As far as being on the road for days at a time, no one makes them take that particular job. There are plenty of local delivery jobs and other work besides truck driving. If people aren't happy with what they do, they should do something else. Why do people just for the sake of ? If I hated my job I would find another and quit the one I didn't like.

Are you aiming that at me?

I don't roll over but I don't expect anything more than I deserve. I do a days work for a days pay and if I'm not satisfied with the work or the pay I will move on. As I said, there are other trucking companies and other jobs. If you don't like the one you have, exercise your options.

The owner of the trucking company doesn't have to meet yours or your fathers expectations. Ya'll don't have to hang around where ya ain't happy neither.

LMAO, you think this is one company doing this? What if your entire industry, across the board was like this? You been doing it for 20 years, and this is all you know? You made good money at one time, have a standard of living, and then you can't make it because your pay has been slowly falling behind for 5-10 years now. Little different.

LMAO wow you are RETARDED i didnt cal you bubba i was doing a reinactment of how the strike started cause that is about how it started 3 years ago I work for a logistics company i deal with more trucks in a day than you see in a week on the street if you could read than you would know that already

that is why i keep saying this is gonna hurt the truckers more than anyone else bro and if you dont know what a logistics company is than you dont know about truckin except what your "pappy" told you


but ill make it simple for you when a company needs somthing moves they use logistics we find the means to move it rather it is air, tracks, or roads I get the drivers to get the loads and i pay the drivers/company the money for the load so guess what come wed when i wake up in the mornig and start posting loads alot of people are gonna tell me we are on strike so guess what out of the 250 plus truckin company's across the U.S. that we use i will delete them from my adress book everyone that tells me they are on strike wil NEVER recieve another load from my company ever (and every logistics company i have talked to will do that same thing) but there will be plenty of other companies that will gladly come pick up my load and take it for me and they just earn that much more business from me and not only that but ill kick them a little extra on the load just to tell them thank you


but hey that is what i do in trucking what do you do? from what i see you do not work in the transportation bussiness just your pappy does and that is cool but dont tell me it is not any of my business when it is more my business than it is half the truckers out there

but hey you gave me a good laugh thanks

I said it once and i will say it again the only reason this really is not gonna change anything is there is no structure to it the only time a STRIKE works is when EVERYONE DOES IT that is why people join unions that have structure and communication I know what the numbers will look like wed
about half or a little mroe nono union will strike but everything will still get moved because the rest that dont strike will see all the loads and they will be able to hand pick and choose what load they want and it will be a win for them

i think the idea they have is good but at the same time they have other options and ways to go about it IE join a union all the union drivers i know and have talked to are pleased with it they dont complain NEAR as much as the the non union guys and not only that but they are about 200% more dependable to get the load theree when it needs to be there not 20 min late or 1 day late I respect anyman that will stand his ground and fight for what he believes in but there is a difference between having "" and not having any brains it takes to fight a fight that you can eventually when but it will be hard to win but it takes someone with no sense to fight a fight that they no they cant win at all

but who knows what will happen all i know is wed may hurt my pocket a little bit but hey it wont hurt my pocket near as much as it will the pockets of the trucks that arent driving
