I always get tons of grief over this but I am not a fan of percentage pay. When rates are up, like now, drivers are all about it and seem to benefit. When rates are low, drivers are all crying in their chicken fried steak over it. I think drivers should get hourly plus overtime right from the ELD. Stop fighting over percentage or mileage or whatever. All time working should be paid. That is all time driving or on-duty. There is no reason now that this can't happen. With the PAM lawsuit and others like England and Werner that have settled these issues in court, our time is now. Keep pushing to be paid for all of your time.

Hi! Welcome. I'm Mark and I've been a professional truck driver for over 33 years, the last 19 years at the same company. It is time that drivers got paid for every minute that we work and we are treated like the licensed professionals we are.
