    Paper log books helped the real bad dispatchers out the door. Now we have Eld and now that the driver cant work harder to make up for the incompetent dispatchers we once had it's being sorted out. Drivers had complained that they are not dumb but now that the college educated dispatchers are here they dont want to work with them?

    What do you do when you've run through all your drivers and none of them want the load?

    Non-forced dispatch is fine but sooner or later that load has to go.
