Start with national diesel fuel prices north of $4.80 a gallon. Combine with large trucks that get no more than six miles per gallon even with a strong tail wind as they regularly crisscross North America.

If you lost your job to India, go to a website, www.nojobsforindia.com and report your situation. Please contact your Congressmen and Senators as well. Good luck.

What they are not telling you is that they are eliminating hundreds if not thousands of jobs with this "Velocity" system, needlessly. They could do next day freight much more efficiently and more cost effective with the regional carriers. They would be more profitable and employ more American workers. A benefit to everyone. That is if they really intended to keep them.

There are employees at Roadway's general office here in Akron who, as I type this, are training new employees from India to take over their jobs. Some of these employees have been at Roadway for 20+ years but this is the only way for them to keep any part of their pension.
Sure, "The building is still full of people"; as they push out the employees who are making a decent living by moving their jobs to India, YRC is hiring "entry level" jobs that only pay a fraction of the salaries of those who are being humiliated by training their Indian replacements.
