    Just got back to the yard with a loaded trailer, and went in to dispatch to get my next load, and got told that LME is no longer in business. Not only that, but we got told not to expect our last 3 checks. I don't care if they want to close, but to think that I have worked the last 2 weeks for free is making my blood boil. I just started a month ago, and I really liked the job and my coworkers. I don't even know what to think right now.

    Got the word awhile ago. Riverton terminal/Springfield IL. Doesn't surprise me. Been here 3 years, got sone pretty big raises the last year, wondering where the money was coming from. Apparently thin air, although we just picked up more business.

    But to tell us not to expect the money we earned is infuriating.

    Worse yet, at least here in Canada. The government still counts that as income and expects You to pay the taxes owed on that income even though you’ll never see the money.
