    The ATA of course. It is their member companies that have such a driver retention (not driver shortage) problem that they have a 96% annual turnover.
     
    Coover, x1Heavy and JonJon78 Thank this.

    BTW. I’ve been to that truck stop west of Laramie. Never again. Those guys (Sikhs) can have that place and I promise not to get in their way.

    Sikhs are the type of immigrant that are good for this country. The are hard working, family oriented, and generally assimilate well into the American culture. Sikhs are most definitely not moslims, whos religion is generally incompatible with democracy and freedom. Many people see the turban and automatically assume they are moslims even though moslims and arabs do not typically wear turbans.

    I have had some interaction with Sikhs and usually find them to be very friendly.
