    so if that big 10 per cent increase is from 80 to a whopping 88 cents a mile, it's still cheap junk!

    I'm quite happy with the rates that I'm getting. Perhaps I'm an exception rather than the rule, but I can tell you, I'm not hauling anything for $0.80 or .88. I've rarely hauled anything lately that paid less than $2.00 per mile. Of course, that's before my company takes their cut, but I'm quite happy with what's left for me!

    We're getting better rates, and more freight.

    Management is already talking about a possible raise in driver pay within the next couple of months.
