FWIW, the drivers setting and collecting unemployment will have a hard time getting another driving job. Most places require that you have driven X amount of miles in the last 12 months. Just because you've been driving 20 years dose'nt mean anything if you have'nt touched a wheel in a year.
After 20 years of driving, one doesn't forget after one year how to drive a rig. What nonsence is this?
