    The short answer is that it depends on where you live, what you buy, etc. You need a phd to really understand how it works - at least the people who run the bls all have them in economics. But US inflation is about 1%. As Wolf rightly pointed out earlier, some things are excluded from some measures. But the site below should help you figure out what inflation is in your area and how it gets measured - I learned a lot reading through it.

    The loads aren't yours. The loads(the work/ the jobs) belong to the employer. The IBT contracts to do that work- at the company's discretion, via the contract. You CAN give away more of the negotiated control, but you don't own the job....

    The money, 'filling their pockets', isn't yours either. Until it finally hits your bank account- it's theirs- gathered either by generating revenue providing service ( :biglaugh:), or by borrowing from the banks or selling stock ( :biglaugh: )

    Just sayin.... :LMAO: (here we go again...)

    I am so glad that I am NOT in the foxhole with some of you guys I would be still shooting and some of you would be raising the white flag . How many times do we vote contract down and a comeback with the better 1 for us to vote in or how many times did the International fight for a better deal then the first one that was thrown at them. Like I said you gotta make your own decision on your vote but come on guys some of you after being here 30 years and you didn't learn anything yet I really think it's time the take that g string of and put the man pants back on and get a set of balls. Lets show the company that we are one and not only vote no but let's all vote I mean all of us FS 123 Driver

    Hmm, you don't refute or contest the arguments the so-called "yes" folks make when they discuss the issues involved. Instead you make somewhat disparaging comments about them. Typical response.when you have no argument of substance to use to contradict them.

    jimmy g do you think this is a laughing situation ? Do you really think you need to explain how the job works to me. I'm only here 25 Years but I think I know how it works. One thing I don't understand is why you would write a post with no meaning unless you're a Yrc implant then that would make sense. The biglaugh :) and biglaugh:) was a shore give a way. Personally I think you are a very sad individual. Next post just sign your name to it. Frank Sickle 123 Driver

    They can stick it up their MF arses! All they do is lie, management got their vacations back after 13 months they were told to lie to us! They are just at 12% kickback! This company will never make money because they don't need to as long as they feel they will have yes voters! STICK TOGETHER BROTHERS VOTE THIS DOWN! VOTE NO!

    They have already humiliated the Teamsters and blamed us! They need to blame themselves, no offense Yellow people we are still all family here! But Yellow Corp is a cancer, that's the easiest way to explain! They don't know how to treat their employees all they know how to do is treat their wallets and screw the people that make the money for them!

    Do you honestly believe that this is just another "routine" contract negotiation?? .....Seriously???

    I don't know how long you have been around....but you show that you have not learned much if anything about the situation as it stands....

    Okay...now I see why you don't seem to have learned much...or understand much of what is at stake....Really you and your Family were insulted that the Company sent you information as to what is going on and what the stakes are??? ...Didn't even look at it....and yet you think your informed.....

    Such a profound statement.......yes..I'm just kidding......it really wasn't.....However, I have a question, ...Just what is a "yrc implant" ? .. Are we all not members of Truckingboards? ..

    What a minute.... How do you know that? I thought you said that you didn't read any information..just threw it right in the garbage....but you know this is a fact?....Ohhh yes I know....it was only the information from YRCF that you didn't read.....but you read all the "real" facts on here.... and besides as another poster explained to you....it's not your load.......

    ....Voting no, which may ultimately result in closure, is somehow going to strengthen your pension and increase security for you and your Family?? Seriously? Remember what you said... we are all Brothers here....but it seems to me your only concerned with yourself..You even forgot that we are not just all "brothers"...you failed to mention our teamster Sisters too......You need to stop thinking of just yourself if you believe that were all Brothers and Sisters.......and start thinking of whats in the best interests of everyone that has a stake in this......

    Ohh that's a nice one.....With your type it seems to always come down to nonsense like this....I suppose you think that your juvenile remark is "clever" didn't you?? What is it with some you that think comments like this is going to inspire people to rally to your "cause".....???

    I can tell from which part of your anatomy you "think" with....but I would recommend that people should be using their brains to think about the seriousness of the situation and the ramifications of our choices, rather than concentrating on getting "a set of balls".... You should try that sometime....

    Typical response..... Ignore the questions......You really haven't given things much actual thought have you?

    The anwser is yes.....people that can see past the nonsense that people like you push do have a "Brain" and it's obvious that you did not read my post or you have a hard time with comprehension.....take your pick....

    You don't know anything about me.....if you did you would realize just how stupid that comment made you look......But like I said... you don't me so I'll give you a pass on that.....

    You bring that up again.... What is a "Yrc implant"? ...Aren't we all members of Truckingboards? You didn't respond before so I won't hold my breath that you will this time either.....

    Typical ..... Instead of offering some intelligent insight into the situation you reduce yourself to this.....and your not embarrassed?

    How does this add any credibility to your nonsensical ramblings?

    It would better if you had Brains... that is what is needed at this critical time.....I don't know what is with you guys anyway...always focusing on the "balls"...maybe that's your problem....Put aside your fetish with "balls" and try to use your Brain....just once.....ok "Frank"?
