    That's hilarious. I'm pretty sure Swift offers about twice that pay for fresh graduates.

    I was talking to a guy working for them recently, he said he was making 32 cpm. They were definitely taking advantage, as he has a ticket from last year that disqualifies him from a lot of places. Knowing the circumstances surrounding the "offense," we can make an exception for him, but only two years after the offense, not this year.

    Poor guy will probably give up the industry over this. He's only been given 32,000 miles in the first 6 months over there, too.

    "You can't fire me, my recruiter said you wouldn't do that."

    Too bad you didn’t video it and pop it up on YouTube and send the link to their safety department or to their company attorney .

    Something screwy with that story. When I was there the standard they shot for was a minimum of 2200 miles per week for an OTR driver. If you didn't do at least 8000 miles in a given month you could lose your truck.

    I got up and went out to the range and practiced pretrip, as I didn't want to create a heated argument. I figured even though the guy was selling a horrible job, maybe the other guys who stayed to listen to him were right up his alley!

    That lowered income won’t just affect your ability to get a loan. Social Security is based off a percentage of your historical yearly income so you’ll be screwed when you retire as well. (Assuming it’s still there)
