    I agree. The small increase in insurance cost seems unnecessary. Perhaps (likely) a way to offset the wage increase, slightly. I'm sure the reaction by the masses will be a consideration going forward.

    Should probably dig into the insurance numbers to see what is really going on there.:idunno:

    2018's challenge: Too many jobs, not enough workers

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/ct-biz-not-enough-workers-20171228-story.html

    "The U.S. unemployment rate continues to sink, hitting a 17-year low in November (4.1 percent), and job seekers are finding work more easily than at any time since the mid-90s. Openings in the United States have now topped roughly 6 million for five months in a row, a record streak, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics ."

    The big question is how many pay a livable wage.

    Yeah. But if you have 3 part time jobs,each paying minimum wage, you are making 25 an hour for 12 hours a week. That's the way the politicians want it....

    Von, I think with all this time on hand, we should pool our resources and buy YRC.
    We could make Wong CEO, give all a15% raise, hire BillyLo and Ump, start hauling livestock, change the name to " Billy's Goat Express"

    Wong says it's going to be such a money maker, keep it private, why share our wealth.

    No, what they really want is for everyone to sit at home and collect a government check so they can tell you what you're allowed to buy with it. They don't want you to own your home, they don't want you to own a car, and they want you to spend every dime just getting by paying your bills and feeding yourself. If you die, it's one less mouth to feed.

    Only people rich enough to buy the bloody government are allowed to do what they want.

    Report states that Home Depot expressed interest in acquiring XPO Logistics

    http://www.logisticsmgmt.com/articl...expressed_interest_in_acquiring_xpo_logistics

    "Not to be overlooked in this speculation is XPO’s leading position in the last-mile space, which has been spurred on by the ongoing advent of e-commerce activity, with consumers getting more comfortable ordering heavy goods and appliances online.

    Industry stakeholders said on Truckingboards.com that if Home Depot had XPO in the fold it could help to level the playing field with Amazon, whereas if Amazon acquired XPO, Home Depot would lose significant scale and consumer value.

    In a May 2017 interview with LM, Charlie Hitt, president of XPO’s last mile business unit said that the impact of a rapidly growing e-commerce market on the last mile sector, especially for heavy goods, is something that cannot be overstated."


    Interesting reference to Truckingboards.com... Jeff may be becoming a source for breaking "logistics news"...:popcorn:
