Walmart Truckers Score $100 Million Lost Wages Victory In Court

You did say 5 years, must be a plan.

I never write on here but instead of criticizing the drivers for Walmart and there whining, we should join them on that same demand with all the other companies. WE SHOULD ALL GET PAID FOR GUARDING THEIR FREIGHT AND MORE!!!

That's a start... we have more power if we demand together.

Every five years this comes around. The last time was about 8 months ago, so your either late, or very early.

OMG. Smells like socialism to me.

Two year old speeding ticket 24 will anyone hire ?

Wrong.

3 years. Was your license suspended? Any other tickets in the last 3 years? Did you have to take a class. 25 over is a lot. Look through the company reviews on here. You’ll get an idea of what your going to have to deal with.

How fast is the speed limit on the game nterstate?? Did you get to go to traffic school?? Your probably fine!

I received a speeding ticket two years and eight months ago I was going 70 in a 45 on the interstate. I’m trying to go through a company that helps you get your CDL plus training I was wondering would anyone hire me being that this is the only thing on my record at all?

Bullitt's New Journey

Thank you for following.

I'm headed to PennDOT on Friday with my CLP application and self-cert form. PennDOT will give me a KTA (Knowledge Test Authorization) form. This form is used to tell PennDOT what Class, restriction removals, and endorsements I intend to pursue/test for.

Next week, I'll be reviewing and studying up on anything that needs work. Thereafter, test for permit.

And off to school in November, I hope.

Good! About time to get after this thing wholeheartedly, Bullitt!

Still following your journey.

13’6” clearance!!!

Tell me about it. Especially those old septa rail overpasses. It seems once a month a truck gets stuck under one.

PS possibly meet up and chat sometime? Email me at tradewindvw@gmail

Just curious because I live in the Philly area and see a lot of overpasses listed at 13’6” As well as many shorter ones which I know could not be driven under

Birth Certificate and Passport Processing delay woes during Covid. :(

Yeah, i wish it was that easy for me. I would have to travel over 700 miles to do it in person.

I do not know what Vitalchek is, I was just saying I know on Monday I could go to my county courthouse and for $10 or $15 could have a copy of my birth certificate.

In order to use Vitalchek, you need birth information beforehand. Counties use Vitalchek for out of state online requests. Expedited passport requests are on hold to due covid unless death and some other emergency.

I’m giving of what the picture is now due to Covid and Real ID demand.

If you know where you were born, what hospital or what county, it is as easy as going to that county seat and getting a copy for about $10. Your birth certificate is already a public record. As for getting a passport that can all be done online but does take time. In the past is a passport was needed in a hurry for travel or other reasons, contacting your representative or senator what get you in touch with someone to help speed process.

Birth Certificate and Passport Processing delay woes during Covid. :(

This is a heads up to anyone needing proof of citizenship for licensing/employment needs.

Due to Covid and read ID demand. Vitalchek is having long processing times on Birth Certificates. I’ve been waiting over a month for mine. When I recently checked my status, they canceled my order. Getting through to customer service took a while too. ( I was born in Chicago, and now live in the Philadelphia ‘burbs)

When, I learned of my Birth Cert cancellation, I mailed in my renewal for my Passport (It expired earlier this year). Thankfully the office renewal is just in Philly, so my check cleared a few days after I mailed it. Now to wait for Passport.

Make sure that you have your proof of citizenship. If you need it, you better start the process because you might end up with unexpected delays.

PS I’m heading to my parents house today, to see if I can search for my birth certificate. I don’t remember them giving it to me. So there’s a chance it’s there.
