Do you think at least $25/hr is appropriate for someone with no experience in Long Island, ny?

I would be going OTR to get out of NY. Seriously.

I have multiple sclerosis that I have to get an iv monthly so I’m worried about that

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Yup. As long as you lived in a van down by the river.

Alluding to 'Patches?' Or John Ludwig? Or Presence? LoLoL...

Seriously, Hasani; I was born in L.I./NY ... well, born in Queens, and raised in East Meadow. Nassau County.

That's not really a 'bad' starting rate. I asked around. With experience (aka; if you stay 6 months & up,) you'll be making $35 to $50 per, or at least have the opportunity to.

Having your CDLA is a great bargaining tool, for starters. We wish you luck; let us know how it turns out. It's a job that somebody sure DOES have to do!!

My two cents,

Thanks I appreciate it, I applied to some. If you thought $25/hr starting was bad, why did you send me jobs that pays less?🤣

Mainly just to show you what else was out there. Also some were state jobs or union jobs or maybe just better benefits. Unions are big in NY.
