I find this funny, that the company posted a net loss of 10.8 million but they still gave them bonuses/raises. try putting the money to the people who actually do the work, and that is the drivers.

Truck drivers are just useful idiots that that will someday be replaced by unmanned vehicles. Google has unmanned cars driving all over the country so your time is short in the big scheme of things. You are a dinosaur and soon you will be extinct.

The people that get the big money are the people that get college degrees and have balls enough to give themselves big raises while lackeys like you sit behind the wheel and bitch.

If you donít like the way things are run then crawl down out of the trailer and get a business degree instead of whining. PUSSY!

Bob, I am in total agreement. Life does not give you breaks you make them.

USA truck makes a deal with each driver and they can either accept it or not, if he doesnít like the deal then leave.

This trucker guy thinks he is some sort of privileged idiot that should be paid lots of money for having a remedial skill.

Trucking is not a way of life itís something that should be done until you go on to a real career.

He is probably one of those brainwashed socialist union goobers who think the company they work for and the government needs to take care of them from cradle to grave.

His type,(gullible) elected Odumba and look where we are now.

And I just know he will come back with,ďitís all George Bushís faultĒ and to that I say BULL-SHIT!

Hey trucker, that's a big ten-four you whiny fucking idiot.

My wonderful president Mister Obama has a plan to make sure that all truckers are given lots of money but he must be re-elected before he can put his brilliant plan into action.
So vote Obama if you want lots of money.

Wow you fellers sure told him didn't ya. Allow me to inform you both that without those nasty, smelly,uneducated drivers your products would not make it to market. Now I do not know what occupations either of you have, but I would suspect the transportation industry plays a part in it. I know you guy's think products just appear out of nowhere and it only should cost gas to get it there. I take these calls all day long, being a manager now, and it still is a mystery how so many people who have a college education do not realize the importance of trucks and drivers until you can not get your product. Right now we have a shortage of drivers which is impacting many business's bottom line with higher shipping rates. So go ahead and ignore this growing crisis, while the rest of us start working with those nasty drivers so we can continue to deliver our products in a cost effective and timely fashion.

I'll reply to this using something you clearly don't and that is intelligence. unmanned veichles in about 50 years maybe in the next 30 years seriously doubtful because in order for a system like that it would require a sensor network that would have to cover every highway and city street in this country and that technology and ability still does not exist. yes universities like UVA, VA TECH and a dozen others have built what the term "smart roads" but most all have abandoned them as the computers cannot account for the unexpected. powerloss to a section of grid, software crashes, even basic issues such as flat tires and unexpected mechanical breaks. and as for google and their "smart cars" they are outfitted with 2.2 million in sensors, cameras and computers and they still need a human in the car to "monitor the computers".

as for being a useful idiot this "useful idiot" is one of the people who gave you everything you have in your sorry existance. food, water, clothes, electronics, gas for the car you drive that we brought you. if it was not for "useful idiots" your sorry ass would be sitting on a farm picking corn and not on here acting like you actually know what your talking about.

and to be frank since you don't know Me and know anything about Me let Me educate you. I run MY own trucking company as I have for the last 10 years, I graduated with a 3.98 GPA and have a degree in buisiness and finance. I have 20 years behind the wheel in trucking and run nation wide. and anytime you think you want to discuss it in person you just send Me a message and I'll meet you in person and we can discuss the merits of people with degrees over those who actually do the work.

the only answer that fits here is your really clueless. "trucking is not a way of life"? really? you can really sit here and say trucking is not a way of life?

This country was built on the back of the trucking undustry, this country stops when the trucks stop. my god man you can not be that stupid, can you?

And you must be clueless as well because if you had a clue Obama and his administration have been making steady assaults on the trucking industry since he took office. opening the border to Mexican trucks, using the FHA to put in place laws that actually restrict commerence with Canada but yet drop regulations that made it easier to allow Mexican cartels to smuggle in drugs becasuse to cuts the entry inspections by half. uses the FHA to put in place new hours of service that will ultimatly put even more trucks on the road as drivers will not have the needed time to do it as it cuts the drivers work week down 10 hours. what I do see is a saftey record that has improved every year for the last 25 years reversing it's trend. and yes NAFTA is Bushes fault for getting it started and Clintons fault for signing it in to law. so please don't confuse all truckers as being union hacks as only about 35% are.

What is the name of your company? As far as meeting in person, that is just stupid. I offered to do that twice and no one showed up and you wouldn't either.
By the way this guy says there is no shortage of drivers, they just use you goobers. I agree with him,(refer to usefull idiots).

I tried all those links and they all lead to kiddie porn sights. You truckers are some sick mothers...why don't go home and molest your own family instead of trying to foist your sickness upon society.
And quit dumping your nasty bottles of HIV infested piss on the side of the road.
And quit screwing the cheap hoes at the rest stops and then taking your sick dick home for your dictor and wife to take care of.
Question? What's the difference between a truck driver and a pedophile...Pedophiles don't drive trucks because it goes against their morals.
