Senator blasts ‘mean-spirited’ truck driver pay arrangement in aeronautics costs

“& ldquo; A truck motorist who fears their pay will be docked—– which will be most of them—– will deal with motorist fatigue. This dreadful anti-safety, anti-worker provision is a toxin pill and has no location in the FAA costs.” —& rdquo;– Sen.

If opponents of this provision prosper in obstructing this sound judgment repair, it only will make a currently hard job needlessly complicated.” —& rdquo;– Costs Graves, ATA A “& ldquo; toxin pill & rdquo; truck driver pay arrangement tucked into an enormous air travel reform expense came under fire from a leading Senate Democrat Thursday, but big trucking’& rsquo; s leading lobbying group quickly defended the legislation, pointing out the market’& rsquo; s need to run on a single & ldquo; coast-to-coast & rdquo; system rather than a & ldquo; patchwork & rdquo; of state laws.

As a result, trucking companies might be needed to schedule and pay drivers according to the employment laws of each state where they run. But Sen. Barbara Fighter, the ranking member on the Environment and Public Functions Committee, held a Capitol press conference to blast the “& ldquo; mean-spirited provision, & rdquo; and said it enables business “& ldquo; dock employees & rsquo; pay when they take a meal or bathroom break.” & rdquo; Popular NowCaterpillar to drop trade truck lineDispatchers to drivers: ‘Don’t blame us’Turning ELDs from problem to opportunity Boxer, urging her fellow senators to decline the language, said that 20 states alr …
