    They got 1.05 a mile when I started 20 something
    Years ago. I still remember the stickers on the back
    Of the trailers.
    The price of everything has went up ten fold and
    Some guys are still taking a buck a mile freight
    With a smile on their face.
    Nobody to blame but themselves.

    I don't think it will change anything because it's a free market. They did get to see Trump and talk about thing so that with celebrating for them. I don't think it will change stuff like they want. Anyone of them could start a broker business and only pay themselves 1% pay every the high rate and they would be successful because they pay so good.
