    All due respect to Rick, but he isn't going to throw gas on the fire and make a bad situation worse by telling investors that a pay cut is coming. That would (likely) trigger a massive sell off, devaluing the stock even more. His job is to report the numbers, and tell paint a rosy picture about how "the worst is over" and "we will do this, that, and the other" to give investors hope. That's all.

    For what it's worth here at the billing office we are working more overtime than usual and just started hiring. I'm no expert at how this works but it seems lower shipping volumes does not mean fewer freight bills. We're working 45 hour weeks right now, usually it's around 42.

    I got 45 hours last week and that's plenty for the Train. Life is good.

    Was told by VP no more layoffs.. Many drivers concerned. He seemed sincere. But sales really needs to step up their game. I think they will.

    Drivers also need to make sure they are doing the rite thing and play by the book. Freight volumes are down and the company isn't going to put up with B.S. from premadonnas that have a holier-than-thou attitude.

    Hope everyone has a good turkey day. After tonight I'm on vacation until the 30th.

    We've been keeping this team truck busy. We'll get 5 days off for Thanksgiving but not before running 14 out of the 16 days prior.

    Holiday traffic is picking up out there so be extra careful! Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!

    Nothing new yet. I would like to encourage all city P&D drivers to help the sales staff with sales leads. And ask your customers for an extra shipment or two. Don't be bashful. It's sometimes the little things that make a big difference.
