This is in response to the letter to the editor on page 50 in the April issue of Truck News, with the lady and her husband who wants to get paid at $15/hr.
To me, it is absolutely out of the question. Simple reason is, I have had drivers and I couldn’t get them to work, even when they were paid by the mile and pick-ups and drops. What would one do if they were to be paid by the hour? I can’t imagine what that would do to the industry. Trucks parked everywhere, anytime. I don’t mean to be harsh, but that is my experience.
