    If brokers are the only ones making money with absolutely as he puts it no assets. Then why isn't the fool becoming a broker?

    When I see this thread, it makes me think of a song by Hank Williams, Jr , "I'm For Love".
    Nobody likes anybody in this industry.
    Shippers, receivers, brokers, trucking companies, OOIDA, Unions...

    For you people that dont like country music or Hank Jr & dont know the song....
    [Lyrics below video]



    Mothers against drunk drivers
    The Pope is against the pill
    The union's against the workers
    Working against their will
    The President's against the Congress
    The Senate is against the House
    People are against politicians
    And I'm against cats in the house
    But I'm for love and I'm for happiness
    And I'm for "if you don't like it can't you just let it rest."
    And I'm for turning off the music; turning down the lights
    'Cause I'm for nothing else but you and me tonight
    The cities against the counties
    The counties against the state
    The state is against the government
    And the highways still ain't paved
    The banker's against the farmer
    The farmer's against the wall
    Doctors against me smoking
    And the devil is against us all
    But I'm for love and I'm for happiness
    And I'm for "if you don't like it can't you just let it rest."
    And I'm for turning off the tube; turning down the lights
    'Cause I'm for nothing else but you and me tonight
    The cops are against the robbers
    The laws are against the cops
    Justice is against the system
    And some people are blowing their tops
    The horse is against the automobile
    The bus is against the train
    The train is against the jumbo jet
    And I'm against fishing in the rain
    But I'm for love I'm all for happiness
    And I'm for "if you don't like it can't you just let it rest."
    And I'm for turning off the tube; turning down the lights
    'Cause I'm for nothing else but you and me tonight
    Hey, I'm for love I'm all for happiness
    And I'm for not looking for something to make us mad
    I'm all for turning off the music; turning down the lights
    And I'm for nothing else but you and me tonight

    Yeah, I'm speaking in general terms. Not anyone specific.

    [Joke: You know what the difference is between a broker & a catfish?
    One is a trashy, bottom feeding, scum sucker...... the other one is a catfish.]

    My favorite thing most of them say is that brokers have no skin in the game and it’s the trucker that takes all the risk, meanwhile they’re probably on quick pay with the broker they’re complaining about while the broker is waiting 30+ days for their money.
     
    PPDCT and Deere hunter Thank this.

    What's contemptible about an organization that will challenge the government in the courts and sometimes actually win? On all drivers behalf? What other driver associations do you know of that do this and do a better job? Do I always agree with every stance they take? No. But I find it amusing drivers dog them and don't actually know what they have done and continue to do in the interest of drivers.

    A lot of companies that we broker to are factoring so they're already given up a big portion of their pay per year.
     
    PPDCT and Ruthless Thank this.

    Can’t be successful, so
    they blame it on everyone and everything else, except themselves. Typical victim mentality.

    Okay, hateful. You hurt my feeling.

    Yes, feeling singular. I only have one left. Just like my one brain cell, and one nerve.
