Then, you take all your friends to the movies and to laser tag. Then, once your first day of fun is over, you start saving up for down payments on houses or cars. Life c…

Trucking company decides to pay workers salary instead of hourly: 'The drivers... started fighting back'

The decision this trucking company made really defies all logic. It's almost as if the decision was made by some higher-ups who were trying to save a few pennies. Unfortunately for them, those pennies they saved ultimately cost them plenty of dollars in the long run. Driving a truck is a career unlike any other. Truckers spend long months on the road, often living out of their truck and working demanding hours. U/Mallory454 shared that during their tenure as a truck driver in the 1990s, they we…

One truck driver was left literally stranded in the middle of nowhere without gas, all thanks to his boss.
