    Nice... When one carrier increase their compensation package, the others will follow.

    Not really. Remember the mid 90's when JB was bragging about .41 cpm at hire depending upon experience? I don't know many carriers that could fall right in line with that, and do it without a million snags...

    Yup... I don't expect the other carriers to be scrambling to one-up Bluebird, but, at least there is some movement in the right direction.

    Step in the right direction yes.I'll know we are back where we should be when we earn a proper wage and the old head-hunters are standing in front of truck stops again promising drivers the moon and the stars.

    That always made me insane. I couldn't walk into a TA without being accosted by a JB recruiter. I made the mistake of talking to them once. They didn't stop calling for about 3 months, and what they were offering was worse than the deal I had.

    Still, the wage thing does have it's promise.

    We got a bit of a raise here about a month ago.Mileage guys got a couple of cents I believe and we got our d/h starting point lowered on %.Now only the first 300 is free.
    Locals got a nice bump......really nice in some cases.Ah, to be local again..........

    Maybe some light at the end O' the tunnel?(fingers crossed)

    Nice to see a company giving a pay raise. They even cut pay here at the company I'm with and their pay is considered far above the industry average. I agree about being accosted by the J.B. recruiters. Some of them got down right ignorant when you told them you weren't interested.
