Someone's jealous:<quoted text>make a lot of made up money
I had no idea they made that much, either. He has to spend about 1000 on fuel out of his own pocket each week, pay taxes (including the employer's share for SS/Medicare), make truck payments and repairs, and provide his own healthcare.
He works more than 6 months out of the year. He was working until last Friday, but they are probably done now for the season.
Not a bad job (if you can land one ... local jobs where you are home every night are hard to find ... my family knows folks in the industry, tho <cha-ching>) and sure beats long haul, which he was doing for awhile.
