    The tail wagging the dog is not just a saying when your rear trailer weighs more than the lead. :biglaugh:

    Very true, we are all in this together. The intent wasn't to put YRC out of bussiness just to elimunate some competition, but also to lower the standards. Keep in mind, if YRCW companies and ABF are not around, we will all be moving freight for $10 per hour and no health insurance.

    That's not at all true. But if you want to believe it, then go ahead. FYI, >since you brought it up< Everybody makes more than YRC employees right now. See, there's no truth to that stupid statement that people like you always make.

    The reason I said Capitalist company, was to cover all the bases. Paycut, increase in premiums, lowering of rates, frozen pension, etc., etc...
    I said Conway was only worried about conway. And when I said Capitalist, then it's letting everybody know , that I know how the company has survived and they don't have to remind me of the above mentioned things. Make sense....probably not..lol :nutkick:

    Just more consolidation on the units. There's still 4 (i think) Yellow/Roadway yards scattered in and around Dallas.

    Nobody wants to hear that. Just closing terminals or going out of business. :biglaugh:

    I'm not sure if you make more than YRC boys or not. Hell, I can't even tell you what my pay scale even is right now because I've been laid off for over a year now :biglaugh: .
    One question for you beerfd. Do you realize that you make anywhere from $15,000 to $30,000 more than those over the road outfits and have a life outside the truck?
    If you know this then why would we be making so much more than them? You would think it would be the other way around after all those guys have a rough life out there and they deserve to make a good living.

    Truckload guys don't want to pedal freight or work on cold docks. They like being in those trucks all of the time. If this job paid $10/hr., then you would see different people everyday, JUst like when we had the temps. making $10/hr. You saw different ones everyday almost.
    If somebody can't make a good living here, then there not going to do this job. It's that simple.

    Looks like you have to compete for a job. Keeping your hands to yourself was taught to me back in 1st grade.
