Company drivers are treated with contempt, abuse,
and disrespect by the very company execs who hire them! Dispatchers are notorious for the disrespect
they heap on drivers. This has been common knowledge for YEARS...they want to SUCKER these fine men and women from the Military into this crap industry....These Heroes deserve MUCH BETTER
than the Disgusting Treatment offered in trucking.
Trucking is nothing but a shameful sweatshop on wheels...These young people should absolutely stay
AWAY from trucking...Find something enjoyable with a FUTURE.

Problem for these Ripoff Trucking Companies is that
the YOUNG people Considering entering trucking are
Tech Savvy...Social Media hip....and they can see right away this is nothing but a waste of time.
Companies today are begging illegal aliens to drive
trucks..because it is suitable for them..barely..
but these young returning war veterans can see right thru these fake advertisements and pitches
about how "great" trucking will be for them...the job is a worthless waste of time. Get a career in another field and build a future...dont become a victim to these greedy pig billionaires...the industry is a JOKE. Move on to something Real.
