    I know of a couple of people in the chemical industry who make a LOT more than I do.
    If they get caught they get free room, board and health care.

    BS, they do. He's a lease operator. And after all expenses as a trainer, he does.

    He averages 7k to 10k in gross revenue a week when he trains(
    Based of a 5000 mile week average and $1.70 mile rate.) His fixed weekly expenses of $2,200, fuel $2500, paying his trainee $600 plus $150 in workman comp insurance, and $680 in taxes he nets almost $2400 a week.

    I don't think a Prime truck could run 5,000 miles in a month.

    The only way he's doing 2 to 4k is if he's lying, but a truck driver wouldn't lie

    I'm not buying into any of that and I just can't believe that anyone else would.
