Hourly Pay for all Truck Drivers

hourly pay for truck drivers

It has been debated by truck drivers waiting in line at the shippers and receivers and over a cup of coffee at their favorite truck stop.  Some like the idea, while others are adamantly against it.  It will likely never happen, but it makes for good conversation . . .

What are the pros and cons of having all truck drivers paid by the hour, instead of CPM, per load or other means.  By what pay do truckers really prefer?   Stay with cents-per-mile or would having all drivers pay at an hourly rate work for the millions of professional truck drivers who keep America moving?

Trucking talk radio, Truth About Trucking “LIVE” discussed the hourly pay for truck drivers debate on Thursday, August 26th, 2010. Are you for it . . . or against it?

Also, for the first segment of the show, our special guest was Mike Garcia of diesel treatment dot com about the new fuel additive, XTREME.
