    Not always true. UPS is a publicly traded company and their mileage guys make 78 cents a mile! Hands down highest paid on the road!

    I disagree with this video. I have been a truck driver and currently drive for a well known publicly traded company. I make more money here than any other company I worked for in the past. if you work for a company that is not traded expect bad benefits and a crumby retirement pkg. most of the traded companies have 401k match as well as dental medical & vision ins for very small % out of your own pocket. you won't get that w/ the smaller companies.

    Would it be good to drive for a company that is 100% employee owned? (as they claim lol)

    this is why I haven't pulled the trigger and started driving. one person says "stay away from trucking" and the next guy says he's making 90k a year and home every weekend. is it that diverse out there?

    I never thought of that. Great information there. I am a former MBI aka Mr. Bult's , Inc. driver. I did local work and got paid by the load. I averaged 12 hours a day. Got paid for 9 of them. The other 3 free hours where all waiting to load or unload.

    here a tip for new drivers get your 2 years experience where ever you get your cdl at. get your own authority. and make 4k a week. that's my goal. after 2 year buy your own truck. and if you don't like your DM get a new one they're not your boss. if you don't drive they don't make money. I been with CR england, 🙁 Swift 🙁 they suck Western express feeling the force dispatch aswell. might have to go to kllm. hate new Jersey only place I decline load lol

    I can see it coming Dave, I really can. Drivers are going to get to the point, they will just shut it all down. The money is not there and they will just one day, say they can't make a living and will protest some with Blockades and other government offices and they will demand something be done.

    But isn't that is the reason we love Capitalism so much: because we want to make rich people even richer and who really cares about middle class and working class. Lets make Trump richer is our goal. AMEN.

    I'm kind of a special case, but still along your lines of advise. Back in October 2002 I got my CDL through Schneider. I had to sign a contract saying I'd work there for a year or they would charge me for the costs of my training. At that time I was also in the Army Reserves. I got deployed to Iraq in January of 2003. I was gone for 18 months. It's illegal for employers to fire people who get deployed. So on paper I was employed there over 12 months which honored my contract despite me actually only being there for a little over 2 months. Once I got back from Iraq I quit Schneider and moved on to better companies and pay with my free CDL.
