    I can definitley identify with your situation. I am a city driver for YRC, I also have three kids and a wife at home who has not earned a paycheck for 16 years. I have been through a bankruptcy, and lost my home to forclosure in 2006. We at YRC have taken a 15% paycut but like you, I have no choice but to keep moving forward. We have been living paycheck to paycheck since my 16 year old Daughter was an infant so not much has really changed for us with the recent cuts. The thing I am worried about now is the possible merger of New Penn into YRC. If that happens I am out of a job because I dont think my 10 years seniority will be enough to make the cut. Best of luck to you and don't ever give up!!

    We do have a chance to get that 5% back

    We do have a chance to get that 5% back if any North East Trucking Co folds, we go back to the table within 6 months, that's the written agreement.

    Everyone assumes that "going back to the table" means returning the 5%. He might just as easily demand 5% more due to "increased economical turmoil" or some other such nonsense!

    Once the genie escapes, all bets are off.

    They might, but I doubt it, there is a lot of good things going on

    They might, but I doubt it, there is a lot of good things going on as we speak. I can elaborate more the 1st week of October, did you notice of all the hiring being done of drivers P&D, and LH, in the last 3 weeks.

    I personally believe that will not happen in most of the larger terminals this year. Look for my posts in October, they might tell you why I feel that way.

    imovaherenow is YRC.

    I haven't found any forum visitor posting violations by he or steelmiller. Please calm down and stay on topic. Everyone knows now that he is YRC. Steel miller is FXN.
