Reality Check

Carolyn Magner

Don't get no respect!

| April 08, 2011

Dear Carolyn,

I’ve been driving for the same company for two years. Lately, they’ve been treating me badly. Dispatch is rude and the owner of the company has told me several times that he’s not sure he’ll be able to keep me on. He’s letting the equipment get run down and skimping on repairs. Part of the reason I hired on was because he had nice new trucks. I’m working myself to death and worrying about my job. I’m making less money than I was before I came to work here.

I’m not sure I can take it anymore.

What should I do?


Dear Brian,

Ask yourself, “Is the juice worth the squeeze?” If it’s not, it’s time to start looking around. I’m just say’n!
