Anyone who arrives at a Trucking Company for Orientation has come for only one reason. Nobody drives for a living just for the pure joy of driving a big rig, it's all about money. The new hire has an expectation to drive for a living that will enable them to put food on their family's table. It's a simple fact of economics which based on driver turnover statistics, trucking companies do not understand.
When I first learned of the Merger with XPO Logistics I was somewhat ticked off. Here we all are, getting on with our jobs, doing the best we can and all of a sudden someone with a whole bunch of money and friends at the bank dumped $3B on us and here we go again.
