    In an ever abundant need for transport drivers, we should be dictating the terms. Rise up and demand fair rates and wages. The decades long history of driver abuse needs to end, now is the time. All the other industries/unions are pressing hard, we should be too.

    Start with getting rid of the longshoreman unions, then automate the ports like the rest of the world, then run them 24/7 like the rest of the world, and then it might be an idea to bring on more trucks. But until then, more trucks won't fix anything.

    I just introduced Amazon to Let’s go Brandon.

    one things for sure Amazon knows how to get trucks in and out. Never been in a Amazon yard for then 30 min even if their rates are horrible most of the time.

    The real shortage is in the pay. How many times are people going to see a article headline and not question it?

    The last guy, the only guy really, that ever stood up for the truckers was Jimmy Hoffa.

    That didn't end well.

    Jimmy took the truckers pension fund and started gambling with it, what else do you think is happening with your tax dollars today? Gambling on foreign wars and welfare for the rich so they can cover their losses and keep gambling on Wall Street. It's a racket the whole #### thing and Jimmy was the least worst of them.
