    Alright Owner Ops., the timing is right to shutdown Commerce to force a Government Resolution in Washington.

    It won't take but 3 days.

    What say you?

    You could not find enough to do it in this industry, there is plenty of overcapacity in terms of idle trucks to absorb the loads not being picked up by strikers.

    They have called for strikes a few times over the decades and it's herding cats. It will never happen.

    The Government will take care of itself. The people are on their own, with or without.

    Finally but not last, for every striker who does not haul that load you will have several who will at any price.

    Best solution is to have a law that Congress only gets paid with a balanced budget and with a legal budget.
    Not during continuing resolutions or government shutdowns.

    Sad point, this is not the old days when drivers stuck together, and strikes meant something. Today the drivers refuse to strike, let alone getting two drivers to agree the sun is shining. Small numbers of drivers, mainly O/O will actually shut down. Good Luck.
