In a recent article, a Prime, Inc driver claims she was terrorized by her trainer for a month. I just want to say that we don't know if any of this happened. The only people who really know what happened were in that truck. Where the story seems to fall apart for me is she claims he made her shine the light of HER phone on him while he performed certain acts. She has a video of this, of which a picture from she entered into evidence. Now, at some point during the month he would need to sleep and at that point you could use that phone to call 911 and get yourself out of there.
There is no good resolution to this. If it is not true, companies will not want to hire women and trainers will not want to take women because of lawsuits. If it is true, women will (rightly) be less likely to enter into trucking as a profession. It is bad either way. I will stay updated on this case.
See you on the road!
