Do you plan to work through the holidays?

DENNIS MARTIN
Pierceton, Ind.
J.B. Hunt
“I go home and work on my house. I don’t do holidays if I can keep from it.”

ALLEN BENNETT
Bristol, Va.
Smith Transport
“No. I have before, and there’s too much traffic out on the highway.”

CHARLES NOLDEN
Jackson, Miss.
CFI Trucking
“Yes. I like to work holidays because I get a little extra money.”

DAVID SMITH
Leoma, Tenn.
TMC Transportation
“I don’t plan on it. I will probably spend time with my family because we have a baby due in December.”

PAUL HERSHBERGER
Cuthbert, Ga.
Whitehead Bros. Trucking
“It just depends on whether there are loads or not. I’m an owner-operator, and I’ve worked on holidays many times.”

LEE ALDRIDGE
Moundville, Ala.
Baggett Transportation
“No. I used to do it all the time, but I don’t anymore. I’ll probably go home for Thanksgiving and forget it for the rest of the year.”

STAN BROOKS
Tillmans Corner, Ala.
Accelerated Freight Group
“More than likely I’ll be home because I like to spend time with my family, and the company I’m leased to is good about getting us home.”

KAY DORE
Middleton, N.H.
Covenant Transport
“We work over Thanksgiving but not over Christmas. We take a week off at Christmas and go home.”

PHILLIP WHITE
Houston
Mercer Transportation
“No. The majority of drivers try to stay off, especially the family people. I’ll probably spend time with family and hang around home.”

FRED RILEY
Gulfport, Miss.

“Yes. I’m going to make the money while I can.”

VIRGIL SMITH
Walker, La.

“If the money’s good, I will. The year before last, I worked, and it was worth it.”
