Trucking News | Trucker Cries but gets Denied | Is hourly pay safer?

In this cold start episode I discuss the fact that OOIDA forever complains about the government interfering in lives of truckers except when it wants the government to interfere in the lives of truckers.  Is hourly pay for truck drivers safer than mileage pay?  We try to find out.  Walmart is now training people from their stores to be drivers.  Why do they need to do that if it is such a great job?  Will UPS strike?  If they do, it isn’t about the money.  A driver gets busted in Iowa and complains about it but is denied.  Sometimes you have to choose.
