Today is the day of the big truckers shutdown that will cause all of America to stop and the government will have to bow to our wishes. Ha! I can hardly even believe I wrote that! The group that is pushing this hasn't even updated their webpage since March 19! Their Facebook page is locked so only members can see it. If you want to spread your message you need to let it be open to the general public you morons! I have been searching news sites and I really can't find anything and the group does not even have a YouTube channel so I already call this shutdown a flop as I figured it would be. Now, there may be sporadic drivers doing something, maybe even a few hundred. I am going to talk more about this on my podcast today but if you want to get better pay you are gong to need to take individual action. Any company that makes you sit around for free should be avoided. Asking the government to do something is useless. What will they do, conduct a study? The ELD did not change the log rules so having one or not should not change your day, or were you cheating before? Get paid for all of your time and you won't need to cheat your logs. Black Smoke Matters is on the slow roll to nowhere.
See you on the road!
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.
