    Nothing wrong with a 15 hour day as long the pay is OK.

    And that's the problem, the pay is not what you would think.
    To the OP ...
    A van, cargo van back in 2000 was making what some are making today in a semi - $3 a mile.

    But that was then.

    Now for a long time, some people think they can get into a van or a cargo van and make junior Big Bucks, while it really a race to the bottom - just watch shipping wars on youtube, that's how it works now - the cheapest gets the work.
     
    Chinatown and wifi_guru Thank this.
