Trucking Lawsuits | Tesla Semi by the numbers | Weird State Laws | #132



In a state of confusion episode I discuss the new Tesla semi and how much energy it needs to use.  Also, how much that costs.  Trucking lawsuit settlements are in the news.  If a company wants to have a 24/7 camera in the truck and totally micromanage us then yes, they should be 100% responsible for what happens on the road and pay through the nose for it.  I have a solution to the truck parking problem.  Some weird state laws are up today sent in by an astute listener.

Twitter Freedom | Trucking for short people | A Reason we are not on Mars #131



Elon Musk brings back President Trump to Twitter.  There was a poll and ONLY 51% of people thought he should be allowed back.  HUH?  I thought this was America.  I also bring you some quotes from the left that maybe are not completely true.  Should they be banned from Twitter?  To get women in to trucking we need clean trucks, trucks for short people and bigger fridges in the trucks.  Nice.  We all need that.  Also, more transparent job postings which companies are NEVER going to do.  A guy buys a Tesla and doesn’t run the heat so he can get more miles out of it.  Brilliant.  A reason we are not on Mars ripped from today’s headlines.

CRST and CR England settle BIG on non-compete contracts | Trucking News | A Reason we are not on Mars | #130



CRST and CR England trucking are settling a lawsuit for $2 MILLION total (Western Express already settled for $1.2 MILLION) over allegations that they basically black balled people out of trucking by not conspiring to not hire those on contract to other carriers.  By the way, it did not go to trial, no one was found guilty and no wrongdoing is admitted by anyone.  The plaintiffs allege that CRST and others conspired together to not hire drivers on contract to other carriers in violation of the law.  In MY OPINION no one should ever work for these places.  By continuing to work there you are helping them do this.  I can help you avoid these scum companies with the link below. Also, Fed Ex Freight is going to furlough drivers!  Wow, low freight demand right before Christmas.  We have some Rivian R1T news and a reason we are not on Mars.
