    Nobody there is giving the jobs up . The "best money" isn't available to anybody not already getting it .

    That's true . Small , specialized carriers with an established customer base are doing well . I know a few of them . The money ISN'T running 1,000 -1,500 miles a week at $.28 a mile for a bottom feeder company .
