Respect

Have you noticed that a common topic in most of the mega carrier ads for drivers is “respect.” Come work for us and we will give you respect.

Are you crazy? Inference suggests extreme abuse of drivers. Nowhere else in the general job market do job seekers get promises of respect.

Like someone who says in making a point “I’m not going to lie to you...”

If drivers feel they aren’t getting respect from dispatchers, then management needs to monitor and hire dispatchers who are pleasant.

Let’s make respect something understood and expected.

Truck drivers are often viewed as a commodity. Commodities don't garner much respect.

There's a man who leads a life of danger
To everyone he meets he stays a stranger
With every move he makes another chance he takes
Odds are he won't live to see tomorrow
Super trucker man, super trucker man.
They've given you a number and taken away your name.

It took a second, cos I was a little guy when “Secret Agent Man” came out, but I like what ya did there
