Podcast Show Notes
TD193: New Secretary of Labor?, Senator/Teamster Fight, Love’s Founder Dies, Diesel Mechanic Pay Rises, Cool Products, & More
In today’s episode, we’ve got a possible new Secretary of Labor, a fight between a Senator and the Teamster’s President, rising pay for diesel mechanics, the Love’s Travel Stop’s founder dies, I’ll tell you about one high tech and one low tech product, Cummins is rebranding it’s emissions-focused division, and apparently, truckers value praise more than anything else. Huh? All that and more.
We’ve also got followup in the listener feedback segment concerning hourly trucker pay and how Canada is spending their money to attract new truckers.
So in the immortal words of Lynyrd Skynyrd; turn it up.
