Pope Francis Is Dying


My Father, as a Teamster driver around ‘71 or ‘72, got 13.5 cents per mile, plus the benefits package. White paper contract, employer had a company pension, so there was no contributions to the Central States.


There were big time raises in the later ‘70’s due to inflation.
COLA. Probably went from $8.60 to $11.60 in about three years.


When I started (1976) scale was $8.60 an hour.
At that we were the elite, ate at the best restaurants and smoked the finest cigars!
When I joined Teamsters Local 299 in Detroit Michigan back in 1974, dock and p&d was $6.49 an hour.
