    Thinking the same thing recently. If it weren't for coming in a few hours on Saturday I'd barely get 48 a week. I've gone to my dispatcher and requested more work. Don't always get it. I've actually come to really like my horrible pre loader. Can you deliver today? Aaaabsolutely!

    Why opt in or not for 9.5 list of everyone is to be dispatched under 9.5? Seems like all should be on list at least we get triple that way

    No 22.4 in my building, still relatively lite. Might have to start walking off those long driveways

    I worked there 38 years in several jobs classifications. I heard it almost every year. First of the year rolls around, they are going to cut our hours. It took maybe 2 weeks and everything went back to the same ol, same ol. This company is not capable of having enough employees on the payroll to make everyone's day light. They just can't make themselves do it.

    Obviously don't know where you live but in my state the average mean home cost is 400k. I need to be making money to cover my mortgage. Which is a lot

    We are heavy in my building, this is the 1st full week of 9/5 enforcement and it sounds like quite a few have 2 days over this week. I am covering a shifting job and pretty sure that I am over 2 days this week. We hired 1 off the street at peak, he is still working, as are the PTers that signed FT bids.
