    It's not Werner's administrative staff that are injurious, it's actually Werner's methods of business that are injurious. This is the area that an honest competent lawyer would pursue a "Class Action A" against Werner.

    Are you ready for the directions?

    First, from this page, hang an immediate right and continue straight toward the right edge of this area where what we've written is displayed.

    Continue straight over and past the border line, --- 'bout half way betwixt the border line you just passed, and the page limit line located just before the scroll bar on the extreme right side.

    Turn left 90 degrees and head straight up toward 18 smileys situated just under the wide blue "Your Message" border at the top.


    As you approach the 18 smileys, and just before you reach them, --- notice this [More]
    Say abra-ka-dabra, -- presto-chango" once, hold your breath --- and left click [More] one time .......

    What do you
    see? :smt108:smt103:smt107 :smt006 :hello2:

    I like your attitude Sofia. :salute::smt045

    I'm confused Sofia, --- nothin 'unusual 'bout that, --- but how is it possible to pursue any action against Werner when Werner has no Class?
    Perhaps there's a Lack-0-Class Action A that's pursue-able?
    :dontknow::smt017:smt112

    Not necessarily so PattyJ.
    Granted, those who've been around the Big truck truckin' industry for fifteen to twenty years, or more, have seen their fair share of what goes on behind the scene and numerous changes durin' that time. But I don't think they've been through the bovine excrement that the more recent newBees are faced with. Hours of Service, severely reduced idle time, DAC, drug testing, electronic logs, --- are a few of the things changed more recently.

    NewBees entering now never knew and never will know how it was back in the day.
    They say one doesn't miss what one never had.
    Those who began twenty or more years ago weren't faced with the recent rules and regulations changes.
    They're the ones who remember yesteryear, and would probably prefer to go back in time.
    To be honest with y'all, if I were considering entering the industry as a newBee today, my research would make my decision easy. I'd just say "NO" way, José.
    They've managed to take most, if not all, of the fun out of it.
    So much for the advice I'd heard growin' up, ----
    Find a job doin 'something that you enjoy
    And you'll never work a day in your life.

    That is, ........ until we hear, ---------->

    Even when I started, we used to be more of a family out there.
    Now it's totally different.
    You should see the looks I get when I help somebody tarp a load or give away a shower or even hold the door open. They are shocked that somebody is helping them.

    It sucks.

    I really appreciate the opinions of truck drivers. Drivers are straightforward. When you're driving I-40 East into Dallas, you really have no fears. There is nothing except you and the road. (I love Russell's at Exit 369 Russell's Truck and Travel - I-40 - Exit 369 - NM - TX state line). It's okay...I love the drivers I met at Russell's. He was at Russell's with his son....okay, you truckers know better than anyone else.....I listen and agree with you.

    I have no idea what it's like today. I was Driver, then Safety for the west coast. I can say most of you are fibbing. Werner don't treat their drivers that way. We can't help it if You can't drive a truck. Some folks are not Truck Drivers. No harm done. This job is for Men Not Boys. :)

    I still think long haul drivers need to be paid an annual salary + pay per load.....(this BS about "how many cents" per mile has to stop). In the blue collar sector, workers wages comprise about 18-21% of a USA corporations quarterly income (i.e. such as electrical workers). Long haul truck drivers are grossly underpaid regarding the importance of their responsibilities in the Transportation and Logistics industry. On an average, when a driver's gross annual wages are less than $38,000, it comprises less than 4% of a national trucking companies quarterly income. National trucking companies pay their drivers so little, that their quarterly marginal profits are very high. If a trucking company is publicly traded, the SEC (Security Exchange Commission) requires the corporation's financial reports are open as public record. Reviewing P&L (Profit and Loss) Accounts, Cash Flow Statements, and other financial statements that provide year to date fiscal calculations reflects the quarterly costs for transportation and operating "blue collar" wages.......the percent of wages paid to long haul truck drivers is terribly low.

    In my opinion, comparatively in USA blue collar wages and statistics; long haul drivers should not be grossing anything less than $50,000 annual, if you are working for a national trucking company. The importance of USA truck drivers is grossly under-rated. A national trucking company does not have corporate income or investor financial distributions if truckers aren't running their freight. The corporation's investments would be totally immobilized and after one week, investors would have to freeze their assets, if truckers weren't running their freight.

    (This is really not applicable to smaller regional trucking companies, though. Pay methods are different based on regional companies.)
