    It amazes me that people sign up for jobs like these. But the more it gets publicized, the more Amazon will have to start actually dealing with the problems instead of lying about it and sweeping it under the rug.

    Could be. It's all about the "contractor model", and the agreed to contract. Here it will end up in court, I'd be willing to bet.

    See below...

    NLRB Reverses Key Rulings: Returns to Pre-Obama Board Test for Deciding Joint-Employer Status and for Determining Whether Handbooks, Rules and Policies Violate the NLRA – Assessment of 2014 Expedited Election Rules and Future Changes Also Announced

    https://www.natlawreview.com/articl...18-2017&utm_source=Robly.com&utm_medium=email

    "In rejecting Browning-Ferris, the majority returns to a standard based on the common law test for determining whether an employer-employee relationship exists as a predicate to finding a joint-employer relationship."

    "An Assessment of the 2014 Expedited Election Rules
    Because the expedited election rules were adopted through administrative rule making under the Administrative Procedures Act, the Board cannot simply discard or revise the 2015 amendments."

    Here you go again. Gimmicks. Why not just raise the starting pay, and benefits to a good paying level, and not hear the words,"competitive pay" ? I have always thought those 2 words meant competitive with the majority of the other crappy paying carriers...

    FMCSA Proposes Revised Hours-of-Service Personal Conveyance Guidance

    http://www.ttnews.com/articles/fmcsa-proposes-personal-conveyance-guidance

    "The prior guidance, issued in 1997, explicitly excluded the use of laden vehicles for personal conveyance and the operation of a CMV as personal conveyance by drivers who have been placed out of service for HOS violations. In the proposed revision to the guidance, the agency focuses on the reason the driver is operating a CMV while off-duty, without regard to whether the CMV is or is not laden."

    FedEx's (FDX) CEO Frederick Smith on Q2 2018 Results - Earnings Call Transcript


    https://seekingalpha.com/article/41...-results-earnings-call-transcript?part=single


    "GDP could increase materially next year as a result of U.S. tax reform. If this occurs, we would likely increase capital expenditures and hiring to accommodate the additional volumes triggered from this incremental GDP growth."

    "This tax reform bill would go a long way in making U.S. based corporations more competitive globally."

    I was told they eventually going to be installing a Truckers GPS in the People Net onboard log tablet, and those new cell phone like handhelds should be rolling out in 6 months or so also. So I think upgrades will be here soon.
