    Kinda like that half hour Meltom kept asking about:yes2557: huh Medic?


    Taildragon no worries. Only a driver can allow a company to dump it in their lap. Be aware of the regulations, hold your ground when someone tries to place you in a no win(for you) situation. I have guys in my company swearing we went elogs to keep us from getting raises. Funny I have received the last 6 even breaking in two new trucks in the process.

    exactly right tazz, the buck stops here, and the drivers need to stand their ground, if not, they will be left holding the bag.

    Where they screwed up on E-log program. D.O.T earned a little of my respect fighting the pass of that bill.

    My point exactly Kansas, it is going to get to the point that either you get to go visit your family, and go hungry, or you run for three weeks at a time and then go home for 34, you hear guys talking about it more and more, the companies want to get you to agree to be out two or three weeks during the hiring process. Excuse me, but it is family First, and then the work, otherwise what are we doing, what point is money, if you can't be with the ones that are important to you? You are better off flipping burgers..

    Perhaps you missed the part about it not always working 100%.What works for me does not work for everyone.It was my option offered to the OP.If you disagree so be it.

    And you are correct,I do not make $300. a week,I average $950. a week take home.

    Just checked in to see how things were going ...........I can see they are still the same. I just cant wait to see trucking in 10 years, government getting involved in ANYTHING is never good!

    What does our government do well? What? Anything?
     
    Taildragon Thanks this.
