These next couple of years should be interesting.
If they were forced to, there would be, "unintended consequences ". Drivers now getting 50-60 hours a week, would get hours cut, hence a pay cut to avoid overtime. More drivers hired and the cost structure goes up, with more benefits the company will pay. Less profit. Less chance of raises seen recently . Be careful what you ask for!!!!,
No, that is simply not true. It would be cheaper to pay drivers overtime than hire those extra drivers. Your post sounds like something right out of the company playbook. That's what they want you to believe but don't let them fool you.
The way I see it is, if the company can't afford to pay the help a fair market wage and overtime after 8/40, then they can't afford to be in business.
Why would you hire another driver and be stuck with having to pay benefits and work them into a rotation? Makes no financial sense. Cheaper to work your present help OT than hire more
Absolutely. When you factor in the percentage of a 401k match etc. Now that they have recieived this massive windfall of a tax cut they most certainly can do better.
I worry about you Richard when you ask a question like that. Are you running a fever, or feeling a little under the weather? That might explain it. Ya left out Divine intervention. There is hope after all. von.
