Truck drivers aren’t covered by minimum wage. The feds keep tightening the screws when there isn’t justification. If they want to improve the industry the need to come down hard on shippers and receivers that beyond a reasonable time essentially steal drivers’ hours by forcing them to wait to unload or load .
If the feds want to improve the industry, they would get out of it altogether. Of course, the Fed NEVER improve anything except their access to your money and their ability to push people around.
Suggesting more regulations isn’t helpful.
Exactly. One of the problems drivers face is that the time they spend at a shipper/receiver is considered on-duty time, and since they are paid by the mile it is uncompensated work time for the driver.
