    M.S. Carriers

    I was just thinking that I really miss driving for M.S. Carriers. Why did they have to sell out. I made good money and had good miles from them back in the day. I looked at some old pay stubs and realized. I made more money then, then I do now.

    I look at pay stubs from 1986 (yeh I still got a few) and I made as much, often more than I do now.

    Sad state of affairs we're in now.

    Yup and now things are different. DOT and Highway patrol are Tax Collectors, looking to slip it to you. Your qualcomm is an onboard recorder that everyone has instant access to.... and Minnie-soda can place you out of service based solely on officers opinion of some questions he asked.
    Common sense and morality seem to be signs of weakness

    yup...

    My first job with an O/O, he got $1.25 a mile, fuel was .69 a gallon, and all he did was ##### about the rates. We ran dedicated...paid both ways.

    Now these folks think .87 a mile and a piddly #### FSC is gravy.

    My best times trucking were with MS Carriers. I would go back to that group in a heart beat if they were still around. Treated very well, good DMs, drivers, etc.
