I know that times are bad. However, my hubby boss is a class a jerk. He took away breakdown pay and still expects the drivers to sit with the trucks in the cold, for nothing. If they get stuck out and can't make it back cuz of weather. He will not give them meals. helloo they are local drivers no bunks or refergators what will they eat?

OH makes me so mad.. We are on a tight budget and the slow down in work doesn't help. For the last few weeks. he work one or two days. Well that covers Childsupport and that about it.

I would love for the big boss to walk a few days in our shoes. To really see what it's like.

Thanks for letting me vent.

Well at least he has a good place to stay and they're paying for it that is a blessing, but we still hate to see them away from home.

Nice to meet you as well.
I know it's getting bad when they send hunny out of town and he's a local driver. They are paying for him to get a motel room.
