    Don't pretend to know what we think or expect as an industry standard, because I know I don't automatically expect to get screwed and I know there is no "standard", and I bet dragon doesn't assume that either. Now, I specifically ask about how "delays" are looked at and whether they are paid or not. That's what dragon did in his example, and all he got was narrow minded ######## from people like you. You were part of the "expert" train in this thread that just kept spouting "paid by the hour! Are you thick?!?! Why don't you get it?!?" Next time, just answer the question of the OP. It's obvious you and your thought-buddies need to lighten up, because from what I can tell, NO ONE has still answered his scenario. It's 3 simple yes or no answers to the three parts. Read and answer. Super simple. It might even broaden some of your minds.

    Did you research these companies you got screwed by prior to you starting working for them? Did you ask the drivers what it's like there? I stand by everything I've said. Even this one:

    Who #### in your cornflakes?

    Questions regarding specific scenarios and a specific company were answered... can't help you with regard to "what if" scenarios with other companies.

    Sure did look into the companies. Two small ones, and while even some of their own drivers didn't realize about, or experience some of the ########, the ones that did know about it, didn't say anything because they needed the job. As for standing behind what you said, goody for you. It's far more important and much easier to pretend you're right, than be right.

    Who #### in my cornflakes? Narrow viewed "experts" like you?

    I agree trucking can be a shady industry ... and yes you will see all sides of the spectrum here...
    It's a good thing you showed up to those companies where the drivers were unaware they were being screwed until you pointed it out to them.

    Now I feel like you are trolling .... and I'm really not in the mood ... good luck finding a company that doesn't screw you and have a good day...

    Yes, well while sitting here waiting out as now storm, I'm listening to the same kind of arrogant people on the radio, quite convinced that they know everything about trucking, like you, and quite eager to dispense their narrow minded ######## to any or all.

    If you're not in the mood, poor thing, good. I know I won't miss your uninformed ########.

    OTR trucking should not be Federal when it comes to labour standards. Every Province has a set of standards that all employers must follow. Overtime, etc. is covered. You cannot shift hours from one day to the next. The employer does not decide what you get paid for. You show up at a certain hour and the pay clock starts. It does not stop when you are fueling, etc. These regulations would have to be modified for drivers but it is doable. With Federal regs you have almost no rights. This is not 1920 and the Feds could change those regs. I am a former employer and it is not often that I give a "like" to Labour Departments!!!
