    Snafu has brought up the point of hourly. What would be a fair hourly wage? I do believe that will be the wave of the future.

    Drivers if they're smart will look for carriers that pay hourly for ALL time spent performing 'on duty not driving' duties including all time spent at customers or in lineups to cross/clear customs as well as the good old " call us in an hour or give us an hour to find something"..

    Those who also pay hourly for LTL within a major city will also have an advantage.

    No freebies and no excuses to not compensate in that manner really when all the data is stored electronically.

    That being said, I was happy to have received a 10% raise in hourly pay plus a 10% increase in the mileage pay recently.

    Bottom line is that driver pay is going up if you want to compete for quality staffing

    Or... you can encourage Owner Operators to go buy pre 2000 equipment which will apparently be exempt from the electronic logs which I can see some doing lol

    this is great news for all!! I for one can't wait to see those pushy people get the late trucks with the backcharging receivers!

    people have been pushing truckers to run illegal for too long and asking to run 700-1000 in a day!!!
