I got laid off 2 weeks ago, when my company folded. On to other things I guess.
Man, that really has to suck! Any other prospects in your area for local or city P&D, or are you looking more for linehaul? Seeing as you were laid off, I'm assuming a company driver. We have very few US based company drivers, but the ones we DO
have would never consider giving up their runs. I hear "John Boy" pays pretty good, if you can tolerate some of their ludicrous "entry level" runs, like the Detroit to Windsor and back. Pain in the butt doing nothing but border crossings all day. Perhaps Walmart? Their drivers are doing pretty good from what I hear. At any rate, with your credentials, I'm sure you'll find something up your alley soon.
We're doing pretty good as a company, and we have a diverse customer & commodity base, so we seem to be doing pretty good. Tons of freight from east to west, but mostly empties coming back west to east. Out of 8 wagons I hauled east bound, 7 were empties... As this is Monday, I had 2 loaded wagons west bound, and, yup, you guessed it... 2 empties coming east bound
Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.
