New OTR driver with low mileage loads

I have been solo for 7 months in my new career. I thought I picked the right company to work for but I'm not getting the miles to make a living.When I first srarted I had some very good runs. Then the loads dwindled down to 27-300m per load. I met with my Asst. Terminal manager and my miles went up 1200m average. Now I'm back at the bottom again. Now they expect me to do a couple of low mileage runs just to get an average run. Again, I can't make a living this way. I've never been late on any load. I need to know, "Is this typical for the industry or am I working for the wrong company? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanksstrong>
