    That's EVERYONE'S pay - in all industries, its not unique to trucking. CEO pay has skyrocketed, while the rank and file pay has stagnated.

    As long as the middle class's buying power stays low, freight rates will stay low. No one can afford to buy $3 onions. Companies aren't going to take the hit, so any increases are passed on to the general public.
     
    Upinsmoke Thanks this.

    I work myself to death for such low wages so I can have raisins and brown sugar on my oatmeal and new retreads on my Packard.

    Yeah, the only way to make the 60 cpm is to have things go wrong that you don't want to happen to begin with. etc. layover,detention time, breakdown. The fools had a buddy of mine in orientation and sent him back home half way through the first day, saying then they couldn't very a employer then.

    I picked up one of those truck stop employment magazines recently, at least half a dozen interstate companies were offering over 60cpm. Even Roehl is offering 61cpm.

    if you some people that isn't enough. So many people want o/o pay for company positions. How I see it if you expect $3k/week with 70+ mph trucks and nothing less in a company position you should look into other work.

    Cheapest company on the planet.
    Qualcom running Windows 95.
    Pay for your own prepass to bypass weigh stations.
    Charges you $1 per cash advance,yet wants you to pay out of pocket for items.
    Enter 18 different numbers to get fuel.
    Everything about this company screams cheap.
    Been here one week and hate absolutely everything about this garbage company.
     
    Elg1968, dwmac71 and Lonesome Thank this.
