OK, I was trying to be a smartass here but you won't play along :bounce:. The thread title is Are you going to be shutting down on April 1...

Monday is March 24 and April 1 is on a Tuesday...

So I am going to take, my tonka toys and go home now, because you don't want to play right..

Well, if this percentage was to translate to the entire trucking industry, we truckers would really be making some noise next week!

We have been doing all we can to get the media involved.

The trucking shows are talking about how the media is finding out about the "strike rumors" and seeking out truckers to talk to, when all along, drivers have been emailing and calling the media to let them know about this.

If you haven't yet, contact the media in your area.
 
I will be shutting down on the 1st as well now we need as firecracker said to get the word out so we can get the impact we all want.

I work for a small company maybe 10 trucks...as far I know we are not shutting down. According to the owners they are still making money for now. But fuel is $3.84 for them as of Friday. If it were to hit $4.00 then I would probably think they would shut down also.
As for me, I just started back to work...I really can't afford to not be working.
