    I'm not a wise man, just a wiseguy. But I do have an opinion as well, seeing as I am one of those guys who have had threats and such happen to him, along with money held on a couple of different occasions. I'm just curious as to what you could contribute to the discussion.

    Im simply stating that its sad this happens and their is recourse against companies. And the fact that everyone should come together and figure out how to remove the hacks from the industry. I dont and was not looking to join workshops or do a seminar. I simply have very little knowledge I can share and as long as no one is opposing my opinions and they are helpful to some i will continue to contribute. If you think its not effective I have better things i can find to do with my 5 minutes i spend on here

    Well 1 bone to pick...since we are talking truth...Vans at Load 1 now with company policy need to have a safety done TWICE a year...at the OWNERS expense..if they pass the inspection the O/O still pays out the fee...whereas straight trucks if they pass a DOT inspection at the scales get a $250 bonus...well now...isn't that just ducky..IMO I think John E should revisit this issue and unfairness...so now there..it is out there...:p
    That said and the fault that i see....on the whole Load 1 is still one of the best to run for once you get past the policies..
