Open Forum- Vote NO! FAA Anti-Trucker bill and ELDs!!
Saturday 6PM ET
Call in 347-826-9170
Two major trucker issues right now affecting Trucker wages are:
1) the last minute FAA reauthorization amendments that the ATA has "urged" Lawmakers to slip in an aviation bill this week. The amendments are the Fisher Amendment and the Denham Amendment.
The ATA vowed last year that this was their MAIN priority. The reason? To keep drivers wages low. If the amendments are allowed in the FAA bill, it will ensure that drivers will only be paid piece work wages and nothing more. All detention time, waiting, paperwork, etc... will be expected to be done for free.
