I don't like being preached to. There is the way you think and the way I think. Just because you believe a certain way does not make it right or the only way. It may be the only way for you.
Organized religion is BS in my opinion.
What do you mean exactly by not "being thrown in the mix with shuttle drivers"? Do you mean if they are kept ignorant of the fact of the blatant pay discrepancy they would quit complaining and be happy?Fact is the majority of TL carriers pay do not pay hub miles. I believe this would be a non issue if TL would run from customer to customer like they are designed to do, verses pulling LTL freight and being thrown in the mix with Shuttle drivers. Not trying to be rude or arrogant, just stating the facts.
Oh, I get it now. Not enough gratitude for doing the same work for a nickel less per mile and tying up two days on a ten hour run like in jeepman's scenario in the above post. Unload bright and early with a full night's sleep to learn you have all day to loaf around (unpaid) and hopefully grab a nap. After running through the night you sit through a mandatory break and hope there are some scraps left over to keep you from laying over another night.sometimes ungrateful and mad
