    Unbelievable!!
    Does anyone understand why the middle class disappeared in America ???
    Did you know that when finally the slaves were freed , some slaves did not want to go free ? Close to home ??
    Do you know that powerful people is doing everything possible to make think that no one can change anything. They want you to be stupid , negative pessimistic. They want you to think that you are not good enough to be independent... don’t you get it .
    Why do you think there are fewer rich people than 20 or 30’years ago ? And these fewer reach guys control more money and power than 99.9 % of the population???
    Educate yourself. Do yourself a favor , at least do it for your children .
    Stop fighting against your own interest .

    A quick Google search for number of millionaires in the United States doesn’t support your claim that there are fewer rich people than 20 or 30 years ago.

    But even if it did, doing what amounts to throwing a tantrum and causing issues for other people isn’t a good way to go about protesting or striking or whatever you want to call it. They’re not going to get any public sympathy when they block a highway. And I’d be willing to bet that a fair percentage of people saying they will be participating were also cussing and calling for people to be arrested or run over during the BLM protests.

    I think you will find upper and middle management of most large carriers have never seen any road time.

    And unless they've been out on the road for any length of time in the last 2 years, how could they possibly form a realistic, objective opinion?

    I’m not saying you suggested that blocking roads is the answer, Black Smoke Matters is the original topic of this thread. I should have been more clear that I was replying to you only with my first statement. I think it’s unreasonable to say that there are fewer rich people than 20 to 30 years ago when the stats don’t back it up. It’s tough to agree with that when there are more millionaires than ever before.

    That could mean there are less people in the middle, I’ll give you that, but on the other hand it also says that anyone can achieve great things with some work and determination. But too many want to blame others for their shortcomings, we see it on this forum all the time. It’s slways someone else’s fault that they’ve worked at 7 companies in the last 12 months.

    Just by you saying that the middle class is disappeared tells me you have no clue of what's really happening

    I totally agree with you on this bro. If you read my previous posts you will find out that I’m toyall against blaming someone for their own failures.
    A couple days ago, a broker , with not ethical work habits or integrity, screwed me over, but it was my fault . I did not follow my own rules and I ended up loosing time and money, and I posted it . I wanted for other O/O to learn from my mistake .
    Take care bro.

    You don’t think it is? Half of Americans make less than 30k per year. Americans borrowed 88 billion last year to cover medical bills despite the “affordable care act.” Retail layoffs are up 92% from a year ago. Real unemployment is 21.2%. Middle class debt is 122% as a percentage of their income. Average saved for retirement is just 20k. The middle class used to be the majority in America. Now it matches the class below it in size. Most Americans are no longer middle class. They are poor. And lastly and most disturbing as a percentage of wealth held by a nation our middle class ranks 21st out of 21 country’s studied.

    As for the strike. It’s funny they can get women to march against trump because the swamp hates him or they want to murder babies to sell their parts so they get some women to march for “reproductive rights.” Blacks to march when a guy gets shot by police who usually was doing something deserving of the police being called because they want racial division. Illegals to march who want free crap from America because open borders is the real agenda. Students to march for gun control because those behind it want to repeal the second. But a truck driver keeps getting bent over. Worst part is a lot of drivers are fine with it as shown here in the comments. Just proves all those marches and riots aren’t organic. They are organized by powerful billionaires like a Soros to push their agenda. You can’t get the average American to care about crap. They won’t turn off the tv or put their beer down long enough.
