    ABSOLUTELY --- The squeaky wheel gets the grease. Why do you think the feeder group was always ahead of the package drivers when it came to wages and perks like nice equipment. They squeeked louder than the package drivers and are a much tighter group . It's the law of the jungle - eat or be eaten. Some day you will grow up and realize its a tough old world out there and you better start taking care of #1 FIRST---then start thinking about those who can't or won't take care of themselves .

    I guess I do remember everyone posting about how easy it was. You do realize what that means though don't you. I bet the gearing up plans for this year have been cut DRASTICALLY. Look out--understaffed city coming your way.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Maybe with 40 stops per day you had more time to deal with those issues.

    I don't know. They got roasted over the coals in 2017. They don't want that again.

    There is more going on behind the scenes, my guess... the fix is in.

    Oh I knew all that. I just wanted to call you out on your BS lines about how you guys were always so tight and looked out for each other. Glad you finally remembered what you were really like back then. Just like this new age of drivers. Out for yourselves. :)

    At contract time Feeder drivers looked out for each other-package drivers looked out for each other and part timers-they couldn't care less about each other. Sucked to be them. I know if I was a part timer and my wages were going to be cut from drivers wages all the way down to 10 -12 bucks an hour I would at least take the time to vote no but I guess you wouldn't.

    I got it already. You don't need to explain it any more. No unity back in your day just like today. Thanks
