Speaking of the Rate du Jour, not sure if others are wise to it but I am: 1. Do yourself a favour and the next time you go to a Fifth Wheel (or Filthy Wheel as others call it), get one of those trucker freebie magazines with the job ads in it. You will find that a lot of the U.S. based trucking companies advertise owner-operator rates of like $1.25 US or better. Someone seems to have it in their head that Canadians pay their owner-ops the same way and that we will run for the same as what CFI will do it, etc. However, when an US-based company calls me for freight, I seem to have luck using those $/mile numbers based on what's in those magazines. 2. For a good laugh every day, there's always A&M and the reason why they pay so little is because they never have the freight to begin with because they're in a bidding war with someone else on Link, trying to cheap-down the other guy. Wherever you see A&M's freight, you will almost always see someone else with the exact same freight and they are paying more. Uncanny, but true. Everyone should just stop taking A&M's freight. Same for Tri-Star. It's the same game with those cats. Discover the power of "NO." It's the easiest word in the English language!
