I am a retired OTR truck driver & my husband is currently an OTR driver. It is a damn shame how the entire country ignores who hauls every single thing they own and use. Everyone that is considered ” an essential worker” are trained to handle being around sick people, are provided the PPE needed to keep themselves as safe as possible, including be checked several times a day by coworkers. Truck drivers provide their own gloves, masks ect, while delivering in several states per week, including the states with the highest death rates. If not for these drivers, Starbucks nor any other company ” honoring so called ” “essential ” workers would have the products needed to use in their free PR stunts. If not for these drivers, the trained medical staffs would learn 1st hand what it means to do without the comforts they take for granted.
While my husband has been working 3.5 weeks away from home and maybe 4 days at home, the so called ” essential ” workers are milking this virus for all they can get, with the help of every corporation that takes advantage of the free PR.
I wish I could convince every truck driver in the US to strike for just one week. I bet the entire country would have a totally different description of who the real ” essential ” workers are.
Thank VT for allowing me to voice my frustration. And thanks Carol for your articles.
Wishing all a blessed, happy and safe holiday
Cyndy, Truck drivers are uber important to all of our lives. I would put them on the essential list and am surprised that they are not included. Please personally thank him for us. Happy Holidays to you!
