    A 2% raise hardly covers the cost of inflation. The bridge tolls alone that were raised, ( up to $12 for the GWB, that's for a car ) not to mention the public transportation costs, would eat that 2% up. The object is to get ahead, not fall behind, like we did at the YRC companies.

    It doesn't matter how profitable they are. It's the 9% they look at. Workers up the yin yang available at 1/2 the price if needed
