    Heard 5 more drivers were layed off in Portland last week. The drivers that are still working are only getting 8 hours a day and most of those hours are spent sitting under a tree somewhere or in someones back parking lot snoozing.

    Well look at the bright side, it should not be long before you all can quit this nonsense and get those Walmart greeter jobs.

    I may end being a greeter at Walmart, but you might end up at 7-11. The difference is that I will be able to hold my head high knowing that I stood up for what I believe.

    Heard from management today that Louie had 2 full trailers to deliver. The first one he spotted and the 2nd only had 4 stops. He drove a total of 138 miles to make 4 deliveries. Hmmmmmmmmmm. Think management was telling stories again?

    Good then the company :butt kiss: such as yourself will be flipping burgers if you are lucky. We know you aren't qualified for a job where you actually have to prove your worth.
    No walmart for me, I already have another job, and have made it a real fun hobby to keep up the RIGHTFUL fight against joak harbor.

    They're Already Gone

    I heard that a few of our cut drivers went over to Oak to work. One of them was rebel rousing the Teamsters. I also heard that 2 of them were handed their walking papers. They had reached their 90 days.

    On a side note, I've never read about treating your fellow man like this in the Bible. I guess maybe I got one of those outdated Bibles. Hey, VP's remember the story about the Sheep and the Goats. :Flame-On:

    I hope things are going good for you all, and that you find work to support yourselves as you stand for your beliefs and rights.
