The Feds have ruined trucking with their hours of service regulations. They fully intend for Mexicans to take over the industry.
That’s especially true with the legal wranglings already under way to make it legal for Mexican drivers to pass across the border with loads.
Meat packing paid more 30 years ago than it does now. Taken over by Mexicans and other Third Worlders. No doubt the same is intended for trucking. Lower the wages enough so no one wants the job, then turn it over to illegal/legal immigrants.
Not to mention the 10 gabillion tickets you have to deal with from local cops. A friend of mine drives, says anytime he picks up or delivers he gets a ticket. Cops are treated like collection agencies today, especially in places like the liberal bastion of hell New York city where I unfortunately grew up and escaped from a few years ago. A friend of mine joined the NYPD and quit after 2 years because he said he did nothing else but give out tickets, and if he lost a ticket case in court they would dock him vacation days. Lot of illegals and welfare breeding cows to support, so let’s get those cops focusing on the real important issues: Collecting money!
