    Hello.

    I was an operator for WB for nearly a year and was told that I could make more money as a driver.
    Oscar and the gang were stealing dirt and I said something about it.
    I was promptly fired.
    The company did take action and I was put back on a dozer only to see someone killed.
    At the present time I am unable to feel comfortable behind the wheel of a CMV due to this incident.
    But, due to the fact that I have always been safe around equipment I can operate with some degree of comfort.
    To recruit drivers they pay a $200 bonus to whoever signs you on.
    That is why Oscar had the big push to get me to drive, he made the money. :D
    However I was actually making less money as a driver.
    So, use your imagination, guess how little they pay?
    That is what you are up against.

    They don't even have to pay them off there is so much going on they can't check every truck if they check any. State inspectors are easiest I have found to bend the rules around.
