The company would cut my chain on my personal hand truck and 4 wheel dolly I made to use them , then they disappeared all tougher and Mr. TM did know nothing about it , jag....We lock all our equipment up but generally, while swiping someone's regular jack might happen, the electric jacks are known to be purchased by someone and left alone. That said, while Im out on injury, mine is locked up and the fuse is pulled. The minimum charge per week out of your pay is 25 bucks a week. The total cost is 3700.
They can afford it making an extra 250 or more a week. Us guys on the city can barely buy a tank of gas a week with our increase.Our parking lot now has a lot of new cars. Line drivers, large number of them went out that week we got our raises and bought new 50- and 60-thousand-dollar cars.
What makes it worse. A city driver at top pay here makes 1586.00 on a 50 hr week. Line driver running a 50hr week makes 2225 a week 2556. more a month than the city driver. Or you can look at it this way. 10 hr day 317.20 City driver. one of the day line runs pays 445 on a 10 turn. Line trailers are also loaded first before loading city trailers. Our newly hired line drivers don't even fuel up till they come in at night. Then complain that the city driver did not fuel his tractor. I was standing there one day and said A Hole he uses maybe 15 20 gallons. Fuel your tractor and then complain if he does not top it off. In fact, I am going to use your tractor today and not fueling it.They can afford it making an extra 250 or more a week. Us guys on the city can barely buy a tank of gas a week with our increase.
Depends on the terminal methinksNot even close to true, especially now with their new rate increase. Line haul is dependent on how far you go, what you do when you get there and whether you work the dock if its a break bulk. As city drivers, we are under just about every competitor as far as hourly rate is concerned and while every other has some for of time and a half, R+L continues to have nothing.
