Thursday 5-21-15 6PM ET Tonight we are going to combine 2 of the hottest issues in Trucking; Truck Driver Health and Trucker Wages.
We all know that the Trucker Lifestyle drastically affects their Health, but what about how drivers are paid? Could that be weighing in on driver health also? Our guest tonight believes it does.
Our guest will be Pat Hockaday from TruckersUnited.org. Mr Hockaday is known for JoJo's Paper, an all-out crusade to change the way drivers are paid.
Pat will share some of his thoughts and solutions about driver wages, as well as discuss how trucking and the present trucker wage formula affects driver health.
Join in on the conversation by calling in 347-826-9170 and Press 1 on your keypad to let us know you would like to make a comment or ask a question.
Truck drivers have been saying for years that, "We need more truck parking" but it seems that it took an article in the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) to get the much needed attention of the general public.
Join us with our special guest Dave Della Maggiore, a 20 year veteran driver as he shares his interview by WSJ journalist Betsy Morris from the report entitled: Too Many Trucks,Too Little Parking. Dave will also share his thoughts about the trip with WSJ photographers and his encounter with a tired trucker at a truck stop in Clines Corners, New Mexico.
Dave and fiancée, Robin, run their active Facebook group, Give Truckers Room, educating drivers of passenger vehicles how to drive safely around semi trucks.
Also joining us will be Nicholas Carretta, President and CEO of UltraShipTMS which specializes in transportation and technology solutions. UltraShipTMS quickly responded to the WSJ article and addressed the serious parking shortage in their own article, “Use YMS to Combat Truck Parking Crisis" which stated:
"Keeping drivers off of public streets, freeway ramps and vulnerable, remote parking places like abandoned lots is a laudable goal. It is also one that logistics as an industry is going to be forced to address."
Mr. Carretta will discuss the UltraYMS tool, allowing the logistics sector to take an active and responsible part in the truck parking shortage solution.

Denny Hamlin won the All-Star race beating Kevin Harvick and Kurt Busch. It's Hamlin and JGR's first win in the All-Star race as well as Toyota's first win.
Who was impressive? Does this win do anything for you as far as Toyota making gains on the mile and a half? Who were you surprised didn't do well?
Jimmie Johnson potential penalty. Does this matter since it's a non-points event? Should the penalty be stiffer?
Sprint Showdown Friday- Biffle and Boywer transfer- Again does this do anything as far as making gains?
The format. Do you like the format? How was the racing last night?
Also NC Education Lottery 250- Kasey Kahne beats Erik Jones by an inch. Jones ran a great race and dominated most of the event. Kahne's truck fails post race inspection. Thoughts? Will they take the win away?
When will these teams stop cheating? Should drivers start being suspended?
Points in the truck series.

Entry list for Coca-Cola 600....48 cars for 43 spots. Nice car count.

Today is all about you guys! We take your calls and questions and give you the answers you need! Let's truck!
This is the first of our Best of CMW episodes, and I suppose this one could unofficially be called the Dine Alone Records round-up.
Dine Alone is celebrating its 10 year anniversary this year, and as such, founder Joel Carriere anchored a special panel during the conference to talk about the ups and downs of the last decade in the label game. Mike caught up with him before the round table to talk shop, and it's a great interview.
For musical artists, we've got both Monster Truck and Single Mothers on this weeks show - both blowing up, both Dine Alone bands. The former is working on the follow-up to 2013's hugely successful Furiosity while Single Mothers are still riding the attention surrounding their debut, Negative Qualities.
We've also got the boys in Billy Talent, who may not be a Dine Alone band, but considering their history with the likes of Alexisonfire, Moneen, Cancer Bats, and the gang, could be considered extended family.
Plenty more from CMW coming up. Enjoy!
