I want equal pay and equal treatment from the industry
by Lady Trucker Judy
Equal treatment and pay as a man
I am going into trucking for two reasons only.. I need to make good money to pay off things before I retire. I also want to do a man's job and expect to be treated equally.
Truck driving isn't for ladies who want to show up a man. Then, if that is your intent.. do something else. There is nothing worse than a woman with an ego.
I am a simple person who just wants to do a good job for my company and be respected by men and women alike.
I love the open road and can take care of myself.. I'm a very nice lady but if someone corners me I can thoughtfully make a good comeback without being sarcastic. I usually put someone in their place in a hurry.
I choose this job because at my age, I am useless to any factory situation because age discrimination is a BIG thing and no one cares to admit it.
I guess once we hit the ripe old age of 55, most companies other than Trucking companies think we are worn out and broken down which isn't the case in my situation. I am better than ever and the trucking company I am going to work for is going to have a very dedicated driver with absolutely no accidents and tickets ever in my lifetime...
Just my thought for the day.. Hope no one takes this wrong because trucking was at one time only a man's job....
