For those with Prime, Inc or knowledge of company driving.

Hello.... and yes, you can take hometime anywhere you want, even if you want to stay at the terminal.

i have fridge with freezer, microwave and Direct TV.... the Tv is a no contract package from Prime. I paid for installation. we have a detail shop that will install anything and detail the trucks.

Truth and Lies of Being a Company Driver

Leasing TRUTH No One Will Tell You

I have a playlist with paystubs, including settlement figures of an ENTIRE 3 year lease showing the pay is not a huge difference. If you add all.of our perks and benefits, company drivers can make.more.

What does a quarantine due to coronavirus mean for truckers?

double-quotes-start.png

reported Italy stopped counting the dead

That makes no sense. They're not going to just throw up their hands and say, "Welp, too many. I'm not counting anymore."

It didnt make sense the FBI cleaned the wrong machines during the anthrax crisis and exposed me and 2000 postal workers for a second time either, having to test and treat us all again.

What does a quarantine due to coronavirus mean for truckers?

March 19th, NY Post and other outlets reported Italy stopped counting the dead. If countries stopped counting, we have no real data worldwide, or knowledge to build upon. UK did exactly what Brett and Old School suggested... lock up old and sick and let everyone build antibodies. Supposedly the younger people started dying. Then they did a lockdown and closed businesses etc.

Time will tell.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/nypost.com/2020/03/19/coronavirus-in-italy-health-care-workers-stop-counting-bodies/amp/

BBC News is also reporting that original figures were hospital deaths only, not those in nursing home or home deaths. Some of the home deaths were listed as "probable" cases, and some were confirmed but not recorded as "hospital deaths". So now the UK is trying to adjust the numbers to the higher figure.

So all of the stats in the world and debate is useless if the numbers are not accurate. The counts of the reefers being used as morgues don't add up either.

CDC info conflicts with Canada's and UK's Health Ministers info.

There are reports from China there are two strains and possibly as many as 8. That is why some people have gastrointestinal symptoms and some don't. According to the CDC 44% that are testing positive do not have the fever, respiratory, coughing symptoms... that you would expect in a coronavirus. So do they have a different strain or just something that shows positive on their test?

So if there are several strains... that would probably indeed make this worse than a flu that hits us with one paritcular strain a season then mutates over time.

Hillary Clinton suggested we all get flu shots to help us prevent this. Please explain to me how that would help. Each shot is geared yo a particular flu strain.... not any old virus.

im tired of this already. My mom is 81 and i havent been home in 2 mos. i didnt want to bring her anything, but she said screw it and told me to come home.

What is a normal wait time?

I wouldnt call... i would.put it in writing. Weekends can be bad with freight. that way it is documented. i would be messaging every 3 to 4 hours asking for an update.

A long time ago i asked to be preplanned "i can't sleep.without a load cause im afraid i won't hear it and wake. i don't want to be late, or worse, ha e an accident due to lack of sleep". that was enough to always be preplanned.

sqeaky wheel gets the grease. building a relationship with dispatch is paramount.

U.S express low pay. Should I opt for per diem and tuition reimbursement

We are getting school reimbursement, they said they had to be the first company you worked for after school and they didn't put us on any sort of contract. They pay $150 a month up to $7000.

Some.companies do it this way and pay as you go, others make you sign and give you a lump sum. So contract or not, you arent getting thr full reimbursement unless you work X amount of time.

Jeremy... how are you?

Still good taking some test today thatll tell them if im still contagious or not might get back in the cab tonight if possible

I agree with Packrat..... but it is awesome to hear you feel better.

It turns out there are 2 strains of this.

44% of patients are having gastointestinal issues not respiratory. i know a trucker who began having vision problems, diarrhea and vomiting. Tested positive. crazy

What does a quarantine due to coronavirus mean for truckers?

What does a single global currency have to do with this? Different countries have different types of economies with different monetary policy needs. If anything, the last global recession showed countries to be more hesitant to unify currencies. And why would countries like the U.S. and China give away their golden geese?

In 1968, Gary Allen published a book titled "None Dare Call It Conspiracy". It discussed how the powerful elite planned the great depression, took us off the gold standard, created the Federal reserve and predicted the formation of the EU and NAFTA.

It is the basis for all of the New World Order theories today. The book discussed the one world bank and currency. Alex Jones used the book for much of his rants. Many things in the book came true. The book claims 3 zones will be created that will eventually form one world govt.

Alex Jones has been touting for 20+ years that the US, Canada, and Mexico would form an "Amero" to replace our money.... much like the Euro.

Why would the US comply? Because we already do comply in treaty orgs like UN, NATO, WTO, etc Many Americans oppose us being in the UN because we shouldn't allow any other body to govern us... we have the constitution for that.

And why is this being brought up???? Because for all of that to happen... a huge tragedy must occur. Some people have been expecting this, which would allow a few people to take world domination.

CCW Reciprocity for truck drivers now?

I have read along, but waited to chime in. As many here know I am honorably retired law enforcement. I am legally allowed to carry concealed under federal law

NJ doesnt care. They arrested an off duty Philly cop for admitting to having his weapon in his car. Whether he went to prison i dont know... but the head ache of even having to deal with it is not worth it.

And a trucker got 4 years in prison.

NJ laws are that unless they are actually trying to kill you.. not "beat you" then you commited a crime with your gun. Reginal Denny wasnt killed.

The previous "better to be judged" line makes me laugh... if you can't handle being OTR without a gun... how can you handle prison?

I will say this... NJ gun shops have lines out the doors.

I am outside LA and there are a TON of people on the roads. So much for containment. No way could the police control this. they would have to roadblock like Germany did with checkpoints

Tough times, tough decisions for everone.

I am a member of Primes Driver Advisory Board and have not heard of this. Things are changing daily... but at the same time, what you are saying is confusing for a few reasons. i will ask and try to get answers. email me at rainydal74@gmail.com

Than prime tried to not pay me saying it was cause i was terminated.. Took me talking to three peole to get the pay i had earned before my termination

1.) Prime does not employ people until they pass the test and are "availabe for dispatch". From what you said, it sounds like you passed then flew home. If you never went OTR with the trainer.. what wotk did you expect to get paid for? Prime does pay by the day during TNT if you are available for dispatch....

2.) Prime does not pay for hometime. So even going to get your CDL, you would be "unavailable for dispatch" and not paid.

That anyone that flies must be quarantined from prime terminal for 14 day.

3. You stated anyone flying is quarantined from the Prime terminal for 14 days. You have no need to go back to the terminal.... so what is the problem? The trainer only needs to pick you up.

If u are training in orientation

4.Your orientation was a few days before you got your green ID. so that doesnt apply.

5. Most DMVs are closed... so how are you getting the CDL? Technically, without the CDL you are not employable so there is no real termination.

It is a confusing situation... and i ask you email me so i can get some answers.

we were told today that many were sent home from the terminals so the terminals can be sanitized.

But please understand... this virus is unprecedented and day to day things are changing. ANY driver entering the terminal is now screened...i was on Thurs... Diver Driver here was on Friday. Monday maybe none of us will be permitted. We just dont know.

Howdy folks and here's what troubles me about COVID 19

There is no real shortage at truck stops. Every other stop is out of cases of.bottled water.. but all have gallon jugs and bottles in coolers. Most never carry toilet paper anyway.. but there are plenty of wipes and soaps.

The main difference is no eat in dining.. no roller dogs or self serve food.

I ran meds all last week... this week is dairy. Plenty of miles. Our terminals are now screening drivers when they enter. A few drivers have been quarantined due to illness but havent tested positive.

China, France, and Oxford Univ are claiming Malaria and HIV antiretrovital drugs are helping.

24 patients were given rhe meds and 18 recovered quickly. New larger studies are being conducted. Using an already FDA approved medication will speed things along.

What does a quarantine due to coronavirus mean for truckers?

Brett.... I had already been working at the USPS for a few years when in Jan 2001 an "Anthrax Taskforce" was set up. They brought in machines that were supposed to scan for Ricin, anthrax and several other chemicals or bioweapons. They had showers set up in case any of us became contaminated and created "shelter in place" procedures in the event of a dirty bomb. they even gave us iodine tablets. 8 mos later 9/11 hit. A few weeks later... anthrax in our building.

they knew then.... they know now.
