Why do you post a question and then ignore the answer? Looks like many people agree with me based on the number of star ratings I recieved for the post that answered your question. How about you stop picking your nose and come back to reality. A strike does have a purpose sometimes. Lost time benefits are needed by people who do manual labor. Maybe out there in IL you guys aren't subject to the same working conditions we are here in Metro-Phila. We drive big trucks...1000's, 1100's, and 1300's. We also have a high stop count. Average 150-160 with average miles per day at 70. We are also on PAS which thinks everyone is a slacker. So when you return to earth, respond!
