    Their is a shortage of company's willing to step up and pay a driver for all time spent. With so much free waiting time and ELD's many are finding out your time is better spent elsewhere.
    I am seeing the carrier I am leased to building the free time into the load.
    Load at 8 am and deliver at 6pm 150 miles down the road. Ya can't start the wait time till you been their two hours after your delivery time.

    If you have an appointment time you're not in the oilfield. You just deliver to the oilfield.

    $32 an hour + $45 a day per diem when I left. I would not go back for any less.
