Hi, I own a trucking company based out of California. As of 1/20/2011, posting we call on load boards are offering us less than $1.00 a mile. And what do brokers have to say about this? It's winter time and it's they're time to make money. I propose a strike for all trucks in California. The brokers are admitting they have the same money as they did in the summer, but refuse to pay because it's they're time to make money and there's actual idiot who are taking the load and falling into their trap. Diesel price has gone up and the only change we see is rates going down. We need to come together and refuse to take cheap freight. There's no way I can even cover my truck expenses with $1.00 yet alone support a family and household.
