I am not a Trucker , and I live in the UK, and the same thing is happening here, I support you and our truckers and believe all truckers should strike
everywhere, I see the rookie truckers on our Motorways, and they scare the crap out of me, weaving all over the road, cutting you up because they
don't see you, and the pay is crap, my Brother drives all over Europe, and even he has said, he hates his job now, he used to love it, he just cant
afford it, eventually he will be out of a job because of fuel prices.
Most of what we pay at the pump is added tax, I believe it's more than 50% is Government taxes, and I think I am underestimating it, Diesel is now
over £1.10 a litre, not a gallon a Litre, thats nearly $1.80, so a gallon is way up there, they don't show the gallon price anymore, so as not to
scare the crap out of people.
I would gladly accept the hardship a strike would bring, because you would not only be fighting for you, but for us all.
