    Just another company pocketing all the money and shafting the drivers with no Vaseline. It's funny how they can always pop out of nowhere with incredible amounts of money.

    Like .60 a mile and $30 an hour is chump change??? Most of those guys are doing $100k ++ a year and home every day.
    What would you suggest is reasonable compensation for a high school graduate truck driver??

    Sure. And there's many more who aren't.

    Honestly, I think we should be paid from the time we set foot on that yard until the time we walk off the yard. I know you may think I'm crazy, but that's my opinion. Are we well compensated? Yes. Still, I Believe wages AS A WHOLE should increase substantially across the board.
