    There's been another change ,only 2 will stay.Ray and another driver.KB has given all the drivers a chance to drive for them OTR,regional or dedicated.One driver already has a local job for Magnum.KB went strickly by senority and that's why they kept Ray,He's been with kb like 12 yrs.

    Also Tyson is interviews the Denison employees for a job at the Lexington,NE plant.They pay 23 cpm to drive there put you up in a shelter place with an air matress,blanket,pillow $50.00 a day for food.They're offering ppl with a family$6000.00 relocation assistance.I doubt many will take this job considering it pays less then what Denison paid.

    Im at a Tyson plant now in Columbus Juntion, Iowa.
    Closing one plant means drivers will have a longer wait time. I have waited over 24 hrs a few times at different spots.

    I'll bet one of those wait times was at the Tyson in Dakota City at the north lot.I have seen drivers wait up to 3 days for a load.

    I doubt it.Id see them sitting in the north lot then they would bobtail a block to the trkstop and sit some more.Transam and Stevens had their fair share of sitting there.

    Waiting times of 24 hours to 3 days are incredibly long wait times.

    HOLY MOSES!!

    God bless every American and their families! God bless the U.S.A.!
