    They were going to apply for a billion dollar bailout a while back then magically decided against it even though they were sinking fast. Things look better when companies succeed without a handout. I'm glad they are making it but I'd like to know the real story.

    They did buy a trucking company in China, and we all know how those guys like to buy up debt.Also China is known for a very high quality opium which the board members of yellow must have sampled because these guys are as high as a giraffe ***** if they were sitting around one day and someone said,hey **** lets buy ABF and **** with them for awhile.At the end of the day its a good bet someone in YRC needs to go to prison over the way they have moved all that money around.

    Yeah, you'll be hauling it. Getting paid pennies compared to what you get paid now.

    Add health and welfare, overtime, and paid for time and yes, you should ask for a raise. Dues are deductible.

    Last coo here was 2009. And that only affected a very small percentage of drivers. Next.
