Trucking companies and COVID Vaccine

I wear the mask in public when appropriate. I know isn't effective so much. But the fear I saw at the grocery store in the elderly in April 2020 made me realize that I wear it for them.

Wearing it puts the elderly at ease in public. There is no other reason I wear one

Best route from NE to SE?

It would depend on the time of day.

The George Washington Bridge/Cross Bronx Express Way (I-95) can be extremely congested at times.

To get to Philadelphia from New Hampshire I go I-91 to I-90, then I-87 to I-287 and then get on I-95 in New Jersey. A little longer that way but avoids I-84 in Connecticut.

PA drivers, low bridge on major highway. Where?

I drive the PA Turnpike 5 days a week, from Ohio to NJ on the mainline, the rt 66 section from 1-70 to rt 22, and I-476 from start to finish. There are no clearances on the main lanes that are under 13'6", only on the shoulders in two spots.

PA drivers, low bridge on major highway. Where?

Yes, on the shoulders only. One is a 12'8" west bound between Breezewood and Bedford, the other is a 13'2" east bound after Carlisle. There was a third, a 13'1" that was west bound just after Bedford but they just recently tore it down although the sign is still there.

The only other clearence concern for me in PA is in Johnstown. There is a 13'6" there that I swear is 13' 5 1/2". Ive driven under it 3 times now and still stop and inch under it everytime even though I know I have cleared it before. It is tight.

Incidentally, I had a pick up in Elmira, NY last week. Truck GPS(Garmin) directed me to go under a 12'8" and Trucker Path didn't recognize it either. Thankfully the town had a clearly marked truck route.

Yep. You have no idea how close you are.

I'm always close. If you choose to silence me that is your choice. The resonance will always echo.

Sure thing! Time for you to hijack another thread with your superior knowledge. You've run this one into the weeds. So thankful you dropped by to set us all straight.

My apologies. I didn't realize I was upsetting you.

I'm a capitalist, 1=2 you know. Assets = liabilities + capital.

Seems there we are a dying breed.

There is another factor with company based training to consider, that is the fundamental motivation of the company to help you succeed.

If you're paying a private school, many of them will give extra time to your education and help more if you're risking failure. I saw my private school do this for many people who were struggling, going as far as giving them twice the paid education time. At a company based school, well they don't have their entire reputation on the line as a training school on the line, they can simply move on to people who are cheaper to train and leave you with the bill.

There's a narrow band of people who will struggle with learning but would be fine with extra attention, and they may well benefit from private schooling.

All else aside, lets not forget that trucking pays the same as bachelors and certain types of masters degree level jobs. If you need private schooling to get in the door it's still a worthy investment.

This^^^

There is more than one way to succeed. Americans aren't limited to only one.

No one mentions the third option- getting a state government grant.

double-quotes-end.png

We've talked about these for years. You just haven't paid attention. It still puts you into a private school. Brett and I both went through private schools, but nowadays we consider the Paid CDL Training Programs to be the best option.

The best option possibly if explained fully in simple terms right from the start, with the risk involved.

Yes it was. You can thank your fellow tax paying Americans for that. Somebody took their money and gave it to you. Thankfully you didn't squander it.

Irrelevant. They simply exist and are easy to get.

The 30 years of taxes( income and property) I paid prior to my grant might offset the cost eh'?

You would argue with a fence post about anything, eh?

What I am doesn't matter. The perspectives exist whether I do or not

There is a risk with company paid training that should be understood by everyone who commits to it.

Sure, company paid training is a working system that benefits a lot of folks.. But it seems many do not understand that there are risks involved and if they fail they will owe money.

I bet that might help a few if they realized backing into an electric pole (backing into anything for that matter) would cost them $5,000+

I tried to get state assistance but because i was employeed i was too good for assistance rofl-3.gif

That lady told me with a serious expression, " if you were on unemployment you would get help "wtf.gif

True. I was laid off from the oil fields after 5 years. The gas/oil boom peaked in early 2017 and many were laid off.

My state invested my previous tax dollars I paid back in me and now I am paying what I was 3 years ago.

Is that wrong?

The prevailing wisdom seems to be that there are only two ways to pay for CDL training: Company 'paid' training or 'out of pocket'.

No one mentions the third option- getting a state government grant. They are quite common and surprisingly easy to get. A simple search in one's state should reveal the possibilities.

company training actually is- a financed loan that has the possibility of forgiveness if one succeeds. If one fails then they are obligated for the costs of their training.

double-quotes-end.png

The possibility of the training cost being forgiven is the absolute advantage of company training along with having a job upon completion. To me its an added motivation to succeed and be set up with a great career for free by fulfilling my end of the contract. I would much rather pay a loan back with time while pulling a paycheck then having monthly loan payments with interest.

I spoke with the accredited private schools in my area before finding this site, they were all $8-12,000. If you were to go to a private CDL school and fail, you still owe the money. If you go private, graduate, find employment and then get fired, you still owe the money. Its no different with company training!

Sure, the possibility of forgiveness makes it viable.

The only thing better in my opinion is getting a grant from the government to pay for CDL training.

I received a grant from my state for my CDL training. If I would have failed I would have owed nothing. It was risk free for me.
