    Default Black Smoke Matters Independent Truckers Strike

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/mark...cid=spartandhp

    These numbers stood out to me...Plain stupidity on the American workers part. They won't join, therefore we all pay....Just plain stupidity on the truckers and workers part. Just lay there docile so we all pay.
    The decline of Teamsters follow a decline in trucking pay and working conditions. A Business Insider analysis showed that median wages for truck drivers have decreased 21% on average since 1980. In some areas, they've declined as much as 50%. In 1977, the mean earnings of a unionized truck driver stood at $96,552 in 2018 dollars. The median earning of a truck driver now stands at $42,480.

    The decline is due to the Independents worshipping Smokey and the Bandit idiot lifestyle. No work where they live so they take away work which paid. And now they are 'outright banned from unionizing"......They don't like unions. Braindead morons. n debt to the banks because they don't want union rules and wonder why they can't make money.

    But where else can one work 100 hr/week, log 70 and if lucky get paid for 40? Sounds like fun to me, plus you get those shiny wheels.
