    I checked the shuttle board this morning, in fact. No one has left the 46 mph board, and the only road that has left, are the ones on here still threatening to leave, but are too chicken sh!+.....

    Just wait a little bit and get that unemployment check before you have to go get a better paying job. Keep them junior men junior to the end.

    No need for layoffs at 309 we are down to 389 Road Drivers we were close to a 1000 when we first merged bids cut down big time but they add more team runs no one wants in the winter.

    FedEx very slow too. Have changed start times, and put in 4-10’s at terminals by me. Cut off people on 8. No OT.
    2 OD terminals near me have people laid off. Some working don’t even get 8.
    LTL has been soft most of this year.
    TL too.
