No. It's because people keep destroying freight. Do any of you know how much YRC spends in OS&D? You don't make money if you don't deliver freight, and a customer isn't going to accept a piece of freight on a trashed skid in a box that's been crushed and forked three times. I'd like to say I'm exaggerating...but I have seen it that bad.
If you want the company to give a ::
:: about you wanting full rate, stop breaking ::

If you think they won't close, you're not paying attention to history. USF Red Star closed after all of 4 days on strike, blamed the strike for driving customers away, and they got away with it!
