Well....Yellow paid 20 yrs in on me, YRC paid about 3 and 1/2 and then decided they would quit, so I got a chance to quit them and go to ABF. I'm not so sure about my experience, but for my age I am darn good looking....I'm told often, so I'm convinced that is what got me hired. Any employee regardless of age has to be vested to draw and will draw according to the years of service. I will have worked 14 years with ABF before I retire with over 37 yrs paid in, so I think I've earned mine, and I have worked with many of these old guys and they ARE experienced and will work without whinning. Not all, but most of these youngsters they hire act like somebody owes them something or some kind of special respect 'cause they have a Teamster hat or t-shirt on, and brag about how much they can hide from the man and get over on the Company and that, in my humble opinion is what contributes to the problem more than some old guy that busts his ass!
