    Default America's Race to the Bottom

    Federal workers' pensions targeted in budget deal: Associated Press Business News - MSN Money

    The American worker is under attack everywhere,many grew up believing that you work hard for one company all your adult life,buy a home,put you kids through college and at some point be able to retire and enjoy your golden years,wake up people Corporate America is/has stolen your dream,it's no wonder so many folks are now working into their 70's not by choice but out of necessity.A yes vote on the latest contract will force many at YRC to continue working even longer to get what is due.

    Now days they can make it overseas for way cheaper and sell here for a huge profit, with our open borders policies they can run trucks here from adjacent countries an pay less for doing it. World is changing rapidly, we're being setup for a one world currency & government, it'll happen soon!!! They can't control you if you have a voice, look at our politicians, they suck our a$$ until they get voted in then they do the masters bidding, the ones who help finance them into office. Like yrc once they have us where they want us it'll be curtains for us

    I read something awhile back that FMCSA was disappointed that more Mexican Carriers weren't signing up for the Cross Border Pilot Program,or in other words how can we help Corporate America fleece the trucking industry if they don't cooperate,we are held to one of the highest standards of any,not unlike Airline Pilots,Train Enginers but treated like dumb hillbilly truckdrivers,chose this profession as a career some 30 years ago when we were Kings of the Road,Knights of the Highway but sadly have seen it reduced to a job,a two week training and your on the road steering wheel holder job,this is a career not a job!.

    This might be a good thread to post pics of the ambassador's of our profession. Just swing by your local truck stop and let the camera shutter start clicking. On second thought maybe not. There are YouTube posts of WalMart patrons better suited as ambassador's than what I have seen rolling out of the cabs lately.
