    Hello all,

    I was wondering how many of us have joined this protest? Also what I have heard is one of the demands is to cap brokers at 20% from Gross. In my opinion, there is a lot of truck drivers who do pull refers and dry vans and gross for them and gross for us (when paying OSOW permits, escort, etc) are two different definitions. Any percentage Cap should be based on a line haul not a gross from a rate. What is your opinion?

    And just to be clear, you want to propose one set of regulations for one segment, and a separate set of regulations for another segment?

    And then we’re done? No more regulations would be desired after that? I mean, other than the inevitable new proposed regulations to fix these regulations that didn’t accomplish what was wanted in the first place.

    Why not demand that brokers just be outlawed and make the truck drivers actually go out and get their own customers.

    There should be a regulation that stops certain people from going into business.

    Why OOIDA as a truck drivers organization can't hire professional protesters? Everyone uses professionals, antiabortion, Dems, Reps, tree huggers. Professionals will be more resultative.

    Rabble rousers. You have to try hard to think of a lower form of scum.

    Do you know what happened to the trucking industry? Why there is such disdain from the general public? It wasn’t always like this.
     
    MTN Boomer Thanks this.

    Everyone wants to work longer hours in this business and complain about no parking
    It comes down to Pay if drivers got paid more then they can go home more often solve two problems at once. How about we work 8 hours a day like the rest of the workforce.
     
    TruckChicken Thanks this.
