Did you know truck driver is the most occupied job in america...did you know it pays well and has excellent benefits? well recently the wallstreet journal has been discussing the demand for drivers and high cost of their pay. Just article after article about how in demand and how drivers get paid very well ( costing companies more than your average wage slave) This field is in demand American workers...but wait for it
What ? Workers making money you say? Um not so fast Republican House members voted this week on an Aviation amendment ( yes they hid it in there as a gift to corporations) to federally deregulate state regulations on trucker hours and pay.
So the attack on American workers continues thanks to the House and the Republican member Jeff Denham who introduced the bill. This bill will strip away pay and hour protections as well as rights of truckers to be classified as real workers as opposed to independent contractors. So truckers, families of truckers, dust off those resumes and get ready to look for something that hasn't been outsourced pays enough to live and feed your family and hopefully offers insurance. Oh wait that's all been outsourced ...maybe get out pitchforks instead...there isn't too much left you can do.
The wsj has been pretty hush on this...they are busy investing in the insider trading...think of how much the shareholders will make now that Mexicans and subcontractors and such can replace American workers for peanuts with no safety regulations to consider. "Oh those dickhead drivers trying to feed their kids actually needing to stop and sleep and wanting to be paid fairly for their hard work. Let's toss them some cake in the unemployment line shall we Frederick...no worries they are just dumb shmoes they dont deserve living wages fah fah fah? And who cares about the families in cars killed and run off road by sleepy drivers...that's the cost of our billions they will just have to realize our money is worth the lives of their kids and families. Well to us anyway fah fah fah fah...we will get some cake to the funerals. And yes its an easy way for terrorists to drive bombs throughout America...but that is a chance we must take too...let the taxpayers worry about the fallout ...dumb shmoes fa ha fah haa"
