    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
