    WHY ARE YOU YELLING?!? Sounds like they asked you to help them with a new venture...the new venture failed...and they no longer require your services. Happens all the time.
    I DO think it was chicken crap that the guy who extended the invitation, did not have the nads to 'retract' his invitation post failure.
    They DID pay your way home, thank you for your service, and extend gratitude in the form of a good referral. But they could have let you know they were failing, and you should start looking at other options two weeks in advance...but they didn't and that can't be changed.

    I work for Nu Hot, and remember there are three sides to every story, I will tell you where it came from from a business standpoint. Our OTR flatbed trucks were consolidated to a flatbed dedicated account out of Alabama, the guys we terminated lived outside of AL, and would have not worked for this account. So Nu Hot made a decision to terminate our ALL of ourOTR and put the trucks on dedicated, which was consistent, no brokerage, and was able to pay the bills. These drivers were great drivers here on our fleet, they made great money, and we wouldnt have let them go, but no driver is going to give up .55 CPM flatbed to drive a .40 CPM dry van. It was nothing against them, just a business decision.

    Ok...so (If the OP was being truthful) if the plan was to get rid of the drivers that did not live in Alabama...why could'nt the boss at the very least give the drivers a "heads up" on the crap canning, and give them a couple weeks to look for other employment?

    The right thing to do with a good, dependable driver(s) would have been to give them a heads up and offer the other position, good hands are getting harder and harder to find....If they turned it down, fine, but that's what a real man would have done....I'm sorry but there's way too much underhanded crap going on out here today....Where have all the real men gone?....Yeah, yeah, I know, I'm living in the past, but I remember how things once were out here....
