our men need more support at home
My husband tells me stories of the conversations he has with other truckers that he has befriended regarding the relentless pressure from their wives. The pressure is to make more money, make more money!
Well...many of these men are literally working themselves to death as they have constant pressure from dispatchers to get loads in ontime regardless of traffic, breakdowns, poor directions, bad signage etc etc.
Additionally the OTR guys rarely get time to shower, do laundry or even pull over to defecate in a clean bathroom not to mention the lack of intimacy with their wives.
So many of these men are being driven like slaves at 33-38 cents per mile as they have no other options in this economy.
So ladies, love your men, thank them for the sacrifice and isolation and stop spending one penny more than you absolutely have too right now.
They are earning as much as they can.
