It's a sad day

Post by Glennfs »

Haven't drove trucks since December 22nd 10 weeks later winter vacation is over.
One of the perks of working for yourself no winter driving.

I’ll tell you what a happy day is - having worked a union job most of your working life, so you have a comfortable retirement where you don’t have to work at all if you don’t want to - and it gives you the opportunity to volunteer and to work for the good of your community.

And it’s nice your employer allowed you to take the time off.

I am self employed. If the people I have my equipment leased to don't accommodate me I simply take my services elsewhere.

Just a bullshit thing - you have ONE employer, and can’t work for anyone else unless you leave them.

No but they do involve driving. 3 side gigs if you count poker.
As an independent I do not have to answer to the company if I choose not to.
Unions are fine for people with a lunch pale mentality. As for me I prefer to take full advantage of all the personal freedoms our country has to offer.
