    Holy cow. That is amazing that it appears to have been written by an attorney like that. Looks like a script to a movie. The way "me" is mentioned in many of those 100+ paragraphs I thought for sure the guy wrote this himself. I think a lot of these cases get transferred to the venue of the defendant, if that's the case then this person is in for some expensive trips to court. Or at least most class actions are transferred, perhaps not this one, though.

    By doing what they’ve always done; taking it from the drivers.

    Look, all flatbeds go down the road, for roughly the same rates, if they’re hauling out of the same places. If one of those companies has much fancier trucks and facilities, where does the money for that come from? The drivers. Guaranteed, it never came out of Harrold’s pocket.

    Sounds like there are a few "embellishments" in that story. But if half of it is true, TMC should have handled this immediately.

    I am curious, how come you think it's embellished or imagined?

    Exactly!

    I feel like this is another case where a new driver, in a new environment, loses their bearings. Why would anyone tolerate this treatment and work environment? Because they’re lost and don’t know any better. It’s why many experienced drivers will preach maintaining control of one’s situation. It’s not about being combative toward or dismissive of a company; it’s about protecting one’s self. If the situation doesn’t feel right, get the hell out of there. But, most times, new drivers/young people just don’t know any better, whether it’s a work situation or life situation. I feel bad for him.

    Jeesh ...good grief man!

    I may have met this dude and he was cool as heck. Helped me fold my tarp then I helped him fold his. I mean it had to be him if blacks are so rare at TMC??

    I would have hired the guy in a heartbeat. I hope the fragile little white dude gets schooled.

    I don't like sharing rooms with any dudes though! Screw that!
