    I have a friend with many years of trucking. Thing is he hasnt driven in 3yrs almost. Looking for a owner op who would give him a chance. Hes been living in his pickup truck and down on his luck. Wish i could find someone who would hire him.

    McDonald's is hiring ... I've seen signs asking for people to work there starting at $13 hour and an additional $2 - $3 an hour for night and weekend work.

    Home Depot is in the same situation, the one near my house had a sign out $12 hour with $3 for night and weekends, when I was there last week, the manager was actually begging one of the workers not to quit and offered $16 an hour to stay.

    I met him back in 2004 when i was flatbedding. He worked for the same place. We have been trucking so many years but he fell upon some hardships , after a year of not trucking he gave up trying to get a trucking job cause everyone said he would have to go back ouy with a trainer, but he has 2 dogs and he cant. Now hes a janitor and doesnt even make enough to get a apartment. Hes in his 60's and homeless pretty much. If he could just get back in a truck he could just run forever. He doesnt need any hometime cause the truck would be his house

    He has a job $11hr but its not enough to pay rent plus deposit. Thats the hardest thing hes facing so hes stuck. He says he would give anything to be back in a truck

    If he hasn't drove in a while, most places can't hire, even an O/O with an empty truck, insurance companies rule the world, and usually won't hire someone without recent experience, if they will allow it, then the price is double/triple depending on record.
    Had a guy the other day wanting to work with me and drive but they wanted 25,000/year for the guy cause he had speeding tickets.
