    Wow, we'll see what happens, I guess.

    Definitely not expecting this ordeal to benefit the drivers, seems like it's more for company longevity.
     
    HalpinUout and TennMan Thank this.

    Wouldn't surprise me if you get a pay hit too, I always heard German Shepard paid their teams real well.
     
    HalpinUout, rachi and bzinger Thank this.

    Not sure, but I've never met an unhappy WS driver. I've run across plenty of angry pumpkin drivers. Moves like this only show to the driver that these companies could care less about the heart beats who sacrificed and drive hours and days on end, to put them into position to be able to be bought out. Maybe I'm in my feelings a little but hell... Whatever happen to loyalty. I'm sure WS drivers will take a pay cut, and the lives those drivers have acquired for themselves and their families will be affected. But what do I know. I'm just a truck driver. Lol!
