How Swift could improve driver satisfaction

if we could have fridges an an inverter to run a microwave i would give the a 10, i don't care about APUS that much with 26,000 trucks that would cut into their Yacht money, I know at Swift its all about them and not the driver. I don't hang out at the truck stops or eat fast food and want to run 3 months and go home for 1-3 days but I miss having the ability to eat healthy. Food is to expensive on the road, I have a crock pot, Electric cooler and lunch box oven but they have their limits. I could keep and prepare and store better quality foods if I had a inverter and a real fridge, I have heard the Kenworth T680 have fridge's in them when they get them but they take it out,not sure f its true but it has a place for one and the power is already there for it. I would buy and pay them to install an inverter but they won't even do that, I guess its true what I have been Told that Swift doesn't care really to keep drivers and it not their goal or priority to since they have about 200 hundred new victims coming out of their schools each week.
If Swift would just allow these two things I could retire here they have good trucks and plenty of loads, the sliding pay scale and that ranking system they have sucks but they would be truly best in class if they could just curve their greed for money and absolute wealth for themselves and give us a little of that suppose Swift Charity they always brag to the customers and public about, after all charity begins at home
SO I RATE IT A -3 JUST BECAUSE THE FACT THEY DON'T PRACTICE WHAT THEY PREACH TO THEIR CUSTOMERS AND THE PUBLIC FOR THE DRIVERS!!!
