Thomas John HULLIGAN NY Class A 7 mnths exp. otr. current casino bus driver want otr job

As a Legal Green-card Holder I chose to go through every single Driving Test up to and including a CDL-A...the only Endorsement I have allowed to lapse was the HazMat.


I still have the Passenger Endorsement as I drove Passenger Coach throughtout the US. Although I hold a British version of all Heavy Goods Vehicle Licenses and both drove and trained personnel on same ,my on-the road experience here in the USA after obtaining my Class-A has been approx7-9 months with two Trucking Companies : H.O.Wolding,out of Amherst.WI, (which I foolishly left too soon!!) and Sunflower where due to several personal family matters I totally "screwed" up and had a couple of off-road accidents that were TOTALLY my fault-sheer stupidity in respect of one and sheer fatigue in regards the second.

Since then I have driven Passenger Coach throughtout the 48 States and Canada and currently drive for a local Casino!!

Problem is that for ALL Trucking Companies( or so it seem,s?)

(a) I Do not have sufficient on-road experience here within the USA(apparently my British & European/Middle East experience doesn't count here!!)or if the 7+ months experience here in the USA IS sufficient,the fact that it is in excess of 8 years ago makes it so that NO-ONE will look at taking me on!


(b) The fact that I am 69 yrs old(No! I am NOT "dead yet"!!!) is an equally serious bar to obtaining a over-the road job!. I have driven Box.Reefer,Flat,Tank but still!.... ( DID try to get on-board as a "Trainee-type driver,BUT despite Companies taking on drivers VERY fresh out of the various "Training Schools,the fact that I HAVE a full CDL-A proves of no incentive~!!~)

Regards to all who read this!!

"Buy a Fishing Pole".THAT is going to feed me?.keep my house payments up? Find another profession?!! I am an Mechanical Engineer who spent most of his working life within the Construction Industries...for the finalcouple of dozen years as a Manager running Workshops/Training facilities. "this is America"?? what the hell! has THAT got to do with anything? they can make all the damn! Age Discrimination Laws they wish but it NEVER will stop an employer deciding against you due to age-they simply do not eccept your application without having to give a reason"...Bu the way? this Age discrimination part is even WORSE in the U.K. and Europe!!..there you are on the scrap heap at 45-50+ yrs!!

I will work at ANY job that pays more that the starvation wage that I recieve now!.. ANY work!.... I was paying my Work-shop labourers twice as much as an hours Rate 20 yrs ago in England than the hourly rate I getr here!!.... So SIR? you have an opinion? and are all -knowledgable? maybe you can tell me how best o pay my way!!...
