    All kidding aside...

    Walmart is usually going to keep you moving until you tell them to stop. When Gryphon mentioned that you'll get a load with 2 hours left on your clock, that means that the driver put his/her ETD from that location with 2 hours left to drive. So in situations such as that...it's up to the driver. Do you want to completely run out your clock? Then you set your ETD to show whatever remaining time you have left, and most likely you'll get dispatched and you can roll on down the road a bit more. Do you want to shut down a little early? Then set your ETD for the AM and you'll get a dispatch when your break is up. It's up to the driver. Again, there are some productivity goals...but most drivers have NO issue meeting them. In fact, most drivers want to run out their clock because that's how you make the big dollars to keep the wife or girlfriend happy. And hopefully they never meet...

    There's nothing to take up with me. I didn't say what you seem to have interpreted what I said.

    As for getting another load with 2hrs is concerned, that doesn't mean you have to leave with it right then. It may be a run with a delivery time for the next day that you can choose to run all or part of it right then, or wait the next day. YOU have to effectively manage your time; as I stated in my original response to your post.

    A Michigan congressman thinks truck drivers ought to receive overtime pay.

    Rep. Andy Levin recently introduced a bill called Guaranteeing Overtime for Truckers Act, which would undo truckers' exemption from the Fair Labor Standards Act. That exemption dates back to the 1930s and was originally enacted as a safety issue to keep drivers from working too many hours.

    Levin's bill has several Democratic cosponsors. Jefferson Van Drew of New Jersey is the only Republican to add his name to the proposed legislation.

    Removal of the exemption was included as a suggested action for the Department of Transportation in its Supply Chain Assessment of the Transportation Industrial Base, itself based largely on stakeholder input taken amid disruptions that exposed vulnerabilities in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. Specifically, the document noted as an action item a policy recommendation for the DOT to "urge Congress to eliminate the Fair Labor Standards Act motor carrier exemption. Under the current exemption, employers are not required to pay overtime to many truck drivers."

    Now you guys are going to make even more money. :D
