They don't really care whether the truth gets out, because the public no longer knows what's meant by "the truth."

Well, I mean, no one can tell the difference anymore between what's real and what's fake.

Anyway, the point is, I can tell you all of this, right out in the open, because it doesn't matter who knows about it. They won't know whether to believe it or not.-

Re: Walmart's $110k truckers: How big-box retailer has been forced to hike salaries to keep its supply chain going after 4,900 drivers quit the indus
I've been in the grocery supply business for 20 years, much of that has been wal mart


Or STAL mart as we like to call it.

Wal Mart's truckers are treated LIKE GODS.

If a wal mart truck shows up and there is a live of 8 trucks waiting for the dock THEY ALL have to move and let the wal mart driver go first.

The employees have to drop everything and get the driver unloaded and back on his way.

If not the driver complains to corporate and the store employees get in troulbe.


And alot of these assholes have the attitude to boot.

BS
Most truckers doing at least 3400 hours a year on the “clock” and at least 300 - 400 hours off. Plus try to sit in 15 square feet space for 20 - 25 days non stop all the time for 110k per year. Some of the prisoners have more space in jail cell.
Not to mention that you got camera watching you 24/7 and assholes calling you every time you change lane with no blinker or stoping to fast when you got cutoff by some 4 wheeler.
