Well, I called several companies today to see if they could give me a job:
Roehl-I called them and they said that they couldn't hire me because my time being away from driving was longer than my time driving. They won't take you as a student unless you are fresh from school.

As I stated in my last blog post, I have been trying to get back into trucking after a 2 and a half year hiatus. So, far the companies that I have called have said that I need to have experience. When I inquired if they could just put me with a trainer again I got the answer that I have been out of trucking too long for that.

I Have a question on lumper taxes. The company that I work for alows me to lump my own loads at the rate that the lumper service wants. my boss then adds it to my check and I pay the taxes on the money.

Is this right???
