Gooberment got your back, who are you kidding. Not me.
Will Corona Panic Stop Trucks From Rolling And Empty The Stores???

Back in Dec everyone is celebrating having a good time. A few were on here bragging about the money they are making.
Now 4 months later there is no work. And it's getting less by the week.
Some of us choose to not let fear and propaganda dictate our lives.
Here’s the flip side , we run new equipment ,
2019-2020 W9’s and Pete 389’s and one T680
That I actually like better, more comfortable and great fuel mileage. We also have 2 $80,000 quad axle tipper trailers per truck so we can drop and hook , that’s the right way to do the work we do. We haul trash ,we have good work usually 38 tons or
More with an overweight permit and do ok .
The big problem is the illegal third worlders
That trucking is flooded with . They multiply every year and will work for dirt , since dirt is more than they made where they came from .
Nobody keeps track of them and they’re a plague on trucking to legal US citizens trying to do it right. Almost all aspects of trucking are effected by this. Many run junk equipment, pop up under different names every few years , the 1099 BS scam and run rampant .
We’re slow, with all the schools , many restaurants, stores , construction etc shutdown
We’re off about 60% , and have a few trucks parked right now. So are the illegal third worlders , and they run around with their junk equipment trying to lowball
Any work they can get and every year it gets
worse , and this has to end.
As you can see they’re is no driver shortage.
They’re is a driver shortage for people who want to work for peanuts that these conditions create. This is something the government has to stop also, But
Will they , businesses love cheap labor, whether its trucking, construction, landscaping, the restaurant industry etc, and the third worlders are the reason for suppressed wages and rates. They say “they do
Jobs Americans don’t want to do” , that’s ########
, pay a legal American a good rate or wage and they’ll step up to the plate. Many of these companies pay less than I made 25 years ago , why
They’re addicted to cheap labor .
With our country finally opening its eyes to how
China has been bleeding our country’s wealth and stealing our technology and industry and how dangerously we are dependent on them ( and them on us , even though they consider us an enemy ) . I hope our country opens its eyes to the danger of
Our country being swarmed by illegal aliens , and how it does hurt this country . The way many politicians pander to them in areas swarmed by them like California and New York to get their vote and how they drain the social welfare programs already over burdened.
I’m not anti legal immigrant , which most of us are or descendants of , but illegal aliens hurting the country.Last edited: Apr 19, 2020
