    YRC....Maybe the govt should buy them. They don't own a trucking company yet do they ??!! Too bad about Sitton, one of the better ones.....

    I wonder if they were losing money so they are just shutting down to preserve what they got left? I talked to one of their recruiters a long time ago and he said they were big into Harley Davidson hauling. Nobody buying bikes I bet or anything for that matter.

    Yes they are! Ive driving for them about 3 yrs and now they are saying that they will run us by the house to unload our stuff and come back to Joplin. Well, now im on a load to Joplin and theyre saying they cant send me home so im screwed on that one..Anyway, I live in Macon, Ga and Im looking for a decent company to drive for! I do otr but i stay out 3 weeks and take off 4 days or 4 weeks and take off 5. Pay is about 35 cpm and miles are about 2800 avg. per week...Just trying to get on with a reputable company with the same options. And I dont like that per diem #### some companies try to force on you. I have turned 2 down so far for doing that...Any ideas, guys and gals? STEVE
