    Cushy union job. They couldn’t care less.

    only way to break these idiots if the road is blocked and no trucks can get in or out for a few days.

    Truckers vs Crain operators.

    let’s see who wins.

    Thanks for the link. That's a real eye opener. I guess crane operators are like super lumpers. How your day will go depends entirely upon their mood and if they feel like working.

    If there is a point you're trying to make in your sarcasm, it isn't very clear.

    This is where government intervention is needed. Assist in funding for automated (robotic) ports.
    No crane operators are needed; the ships are unloaded and unloaded through robotics.

    At the Speed they drive on the freeway, do you think they get paid by the hour.

    very rarely do I see any of them driving faster than 55 miles an hour.
     
    JoeyJunk and SteveScott Thank this.

    That's because if they go any faster, their wheels will wobble off. I can't believe some of those things are actually on the road.
     
    Bakerman and JoeyJunk Thank this.
