Ahhhh, sleepers. The absolute WORST thing that ever happened to this industry hands down!
1.) Employers can leave you in a fricken wal mart parking lot for days...with NO pay in many cases
2.) You stay out for days, or in some cases, weeks
3.) Eat the absolute worst food you can imagine
4.) take showers in 'pig pen' truck stops taht are cleaned by people making $7.00 / hr. (You can only imagine how well they clean the showers)
5.) after your expenses are paid for the week, your net pay is scary low.
6.) most non-union companies do not pay for breakdowns & layovers (if they do, it's something like 50 bucks /day WOW!
oh well, you get the picture.. worst thing ever for this industry.
