In this video I talk about truck drivers being the working poor. People tend to think that hourly pay is real. I know you think I am crazy but think about it. Companies have budgets, They then decide what each part or person in there company is worth. For instance lets hire Bob. He is a manager who will create two hundred thousand in revenue for the company by taking some of the owners jobs. Free him up, giving him more time focus on sales. Other people doing what Bob dose get paid fifty grand so that’s his pay. So they set aside fifty grand in the budget. Then they allow for a little over time. Then they calculate fifty grand in to hourly pay. For the rest check out the podcast or podcast video above. You can find the podcast in Itunes.

In this video I talk about the computer logs. I was watching a video and a truck driver said we deserve the over regulation in the trucking industry. This made me think about how medical malpractice is in the top ten leading causes of death in the US. This happens even though Doctors take tons of schooling for decades. If doctors cant get the problem out of there industry how are we going to do it with two to four month of training. Truck drivers are not from another planet. The truck driver who drives to fast in snow, just got out of his car driving to fast to get to his truck. Jerks are not going to be fixed by laws or regulation. Even if autonomous trucks will have programmers and engineers who will be jerks or just incompetent, which will lead to accidents. Flaws are a part of life and no group or company can change that.

I talk about how to mange money when you are OTR. When you start in trucking how you control yourself when it comes to money will decide how much money makes it to your pocket. Making money is easy but holding on to it is hard. When a trucking student is O.T.R (Over The Road) for the first time, it is easy to spend all the money they get in training on food and entertainment. Food in truck stops is priced high and all forms entertainment. The best thing to do is shop at Wal-Mart. It will save you a lot of money. Try to remember that sometimes when you are in training at CR England , Werner, Swift or any other company you will buy stuff because you are home sick. That will make you spend like crazy. Make sure you think before you buy things and ask are you buying this because you need it or because your family is far away.
