    It’s because it’s the older generation who made it this bad. Of course you’re blamed. It’s your fault. Probably not just yours… but y’all know what I’m saying.

    Dude you need a paycheck. Trust your gut an di what ya gotta do. As I've said before ya need to grab any ol otr gig ya can get so ya have a stop gap measure of money coming in. You've lived to see the high turnover in this industry so taking something that is only meant to be temporary is most certainly not the end of the world. Stop toying with being broke an go get your paycheck. SIMPLE!!!!!!

    You forget about those that came before and took advantage. The difference is we still worked hard and didn't just make excuses!
    dwells40 Thanks this.

    I grew up eating meat and potatoes hardly anything else extra . Nothing was given you worked hard for it and if you didn’t like it boss would say hit the road jack and don’t come back anymore.. my opinion is we had a good work ethic but picked terrible leaders because that’s all that can afford to run for office..
    dwells40 and Oxbow Thank this.

    on my 30 min break
    confirmation found posted in 2 different terminals, as of July our OR as a company is 83%. MY terminal is 81.92%.

    6 were operating at a loss. 1 is a newly moved terminal into a new built building. the others I believe come from a purchase of valley transport in Minnesota .

    lowest is in the 60s

    Yellow workers voted to give back 15% of their pay and 75% of their pension to keep Yellow afloat.

    In return, ABF requested we give back 7% of our pay so they could "stay competitive" with Yellow, since they could charge their customers so much less with decreased labor costs.

    The CEO then proceeded to go on a decade-long non-union company buying spree with that money.

    ABF just got their first good contract in YEARS this year. It was absolutely maddening.

    ABF used to pay nothing in Florida.

    last time I asked and saw a job post it was $18 an hour, but they did pay time and a half at 8 hours and 40.

    Which is unheard of in Florida. Oh, and now they only wanna hire you part time with no guarantee for a full time gig.

    I wonder how they plan to expand in Florida with that bull

    Supply / Demand.......there are roughly 22,000 Teamsters looking to max out their pensions. Won't be a problem at all.
