Told to drive when it's obvious you're too tired.

Please have a read on this, its going to set a precedent on also making the drivers liable.

Something that bothers me

I think it should say

"Make your load on time safe, every time"

Remember everyone has family on the road and that at one point will cross paths with a Semi truck. Im pretty sure we will all want that driver be safe at all times. I sure dont want to be that unsafe driver causing a tragedy to a family.

Payroll Taxes

Thanks for the insight fellas,

Im not doing anything out of the ordinary i believe, what baffled me was owner operators still low balling charging about $1.32 cpm. Thats what got me thinking if I was doing anything wrong. With fuel prices here around the $4.25 range it startled me how they manage to survive. Thanks again I hope I can bring something to the table as well at your questions..

Payroll Taxes

Hello everyone,

I'm fairly new to this so greetings to everyone. I have a question with payroll taxes and cost per mile. lets say I want to hire a driver and pay him .39 cents a mile if I add all the taxes and workers comp it brings it up to roughly. 53 cents per mile. Ive seen that its very high increase. and that my total cost per mile would go up to $1.86 while the national average is at $1.35. how do other companies with drivers manage taxes and stay competitive? I heard that companies hand out 1099 to drivers, my last employer paid me by load and he deduct the taxes from the check.
