    1. Wow 70% more then union wages?? You must have fell out of your truck or maybe to much Hupin the Freight??

      What a imagetein,, you have . Or ou rob banks with your pickup, TRUCK???

  1. It’s all the same bs. The same alphabet soup companies telling you your values at a meager 45k a year average. Costs are up, pay is constantly going down. Do the math people. The companies think they have truck drivers over a barrel, but if that was true, then why the driver shortage? For example, JB Hunt back in the late 90’s wasn’t a bad company to work for UNTIL they hired the “terrible twosome” that came in and SLASHED driver benefits including per mile pay, fact! Those that were there when this occurred know who the two are Iam speaking of. They tried doing to their drivers what Lee Iacocca did with automaker’s. Told them their old pay was out and had them come back to a lower pay scale. Strong arm tactics out to screw, well, the ones keeping them in business. With meager pay and barely any benefits, these companies can ONLY blame themselves for the condition of the trucking industry.

  2. In the truck; Your relationships are stressed, or nonexisten.
    Very little respect from the public.
    A rolling ATM machine from cops to panhandlers.
    All trucking companies exploit you, for them.
    Your health will not improve.
    A trip to the dentist, or doctor is always a worry.
    A illness can cost your job.
    Holidays are nice for everyone else.
    Traffic, and road repair take from us.
    We do a public service without appreciation.
    There’s usually no parking when were tired.
    Everything in a “truckstop” cost twice as much
    The politicians are clueless, they cut us off in traffic.
    They cut our hours and scream, driver shortage.
    I would like to have a vacation, i can afford.
    I would like to purchase a ring my girlfriend deserves.
    I miss being with my love

    Clearly we’re no compensated properly for the needs, we fill.
    Those towns that support trucking issues are in short supply,
    we all know there’s those that abuse all good will, and are just plain greedy.
    It’s nice to see somewhere where we’re not looked down on, we are an american asset.
