    I feel your pain. Im new too. Nobody will take anyone with less than 6 months these days, I'm having trouble finding work too.

    You can try the company that I was at for four years before they told me I had to get vaxxed or go on unpaid leave. SGT usually hires new drivers but, since they've been sold recently to TFI, things may be different. I made good money doing otr and, if it wasn't for the mandates, I would still be there. Good luck.

    I want to say 'Thank you' brother.
    For standing your ground.
    I did the same in Alberta.
    Same action from my Carrier. LOA.
    No employment for me, anymore.
    Your view is not 'unacceptable' to me.
    Good luck.

    A LOT of that isn't due to the trucking company - but their INSURANCE company demands people with at least 6 months experience. The insurance rates for trucks right now are beyond bonkers (thanks largely to idiot juries in the US awarding humungous amounts in injury claims - see the Texas billion dollar judgment for an example) so companies can't afford to hire newbies (unless you're an immigrant, of course) unless they want to pay a whole lot more for their insurance plan.

    Yes, it sucks big time. You're probably going to have to go to a mega carrier for crap wages until you get a year or two behind the wheel, then you can start being a little more picky on who you work for.
