Yes sir retired in September life is good...
Well praise the Lord,doesn't it feel good not to have to put up with the rat race anymore.
Yes indeed! Putting in new shelves and painting the wife's sewing room. I never realized how little quality time I had with the family after working 60 plus hours. After retiring my eyes were opened... I feel like a newly wed. lol! Thanks for asking...
So are you happy with your current wages?
I know Uncle Sam is happy that you are helping paying down the National debt.
imgur seems to work good, so we'll go with that for now.
Rushed all week. Not good for mental health.
Up to $24/hr, $36/hr OT.
Still rushing around---not really the best thing for mental health.
Never ever rush that's how accidents happen. Work smarter not harder.
From $20 to $24 is a nice bump. Ought to make a noticeable difference in that weekly check.
I keep hearing rumors about this starting rate hike. Is there any truth to it. As far as I can tell is bs from driver to driver.
Not total BS some regions are uping their starting pay due to driver shortage.
How could they up the starting rate for some but not for all. We are all under 1 contract no supplements. I don't get it
The terminal I work at is one of them, all new hires in City start at 23, however when working dock they go back down to the normal 16/17 something or whatever it is for 4 year progression to scale for dock work. Also they are frozen at 23 when driving until year 3 they get 1 dollar more. Then top rate at year 4.
Did that new pay rate start already. Or is it just proposed?
It was instated as of June this year.
It's for terminals that can't get drivers.
At our barn they can't get road drivers, so they are waiving the 1 year experience requirement. You can get hired on as a road driver right out of cdl school now.
The opposite of rush is ' I prefer to be late & alive than early & dead. von.
Can i ask which terminal you are out of? We can go to PM if you'd prefer.
