Democrat party workin stifs friend
take trucking :
i'll let a recent trot narrative enlightens us
The U.S. Treasury Inspector General estimated that the misclassification of workers led to unpaid Social Security, Medicare and unemployment insurance taxes totaling $15 billion. Thus, the current employment arrangement in effect results in massive tax breaks for trucking companies.
In response to pressure from the port truckers' strike, the Washington state House of Representatives passed legislation February 11 that would classify owner-operators as employees. This bill now moves to the state Senate, where some think it will face a tougher time.
This strike is the most serious effort to date to win back rights that many truckers had over 30 years ago, before the deregulation of the industry.
"Deregulation began in 1977, under the Democratic Carter administration, when the Interstate Commerce Commission began loosening regulations for trucking operations that benefited "owner-operators" and small companies over larger trucking companies. The floodgates were opened when Carter signed the Motor Carrier Act of 1980."
after that ?
."unionization in the "for-hire sector" plummeted from 60 percent in 1973 to 20 percent by 2002."
... the Teamsters lost about 500,000 members. Wages for truckers fell by 30 percent from 1980 to 1995."
in parrticular there's the owner operator not employee scam
" the misclassification of workers led to unpaid Social Security, Medicare and unemployment insurance taxes totaling $15 billion. Thus, the current employment arrangement in effect results in massive tax breaks for trucking companies"
upshot for instance ?
"Now, in Seattle, the median net income for "owner-operators" is $28,783. At an average workweek of 59 hours, that works out to approximately $9.38 an hour, or barely above the state minimum wage of $9.04."...now add in
" insurance, tickets, repairs, etc"
yer prolly well below state minimum wage
this is the mess jimmy started
new Democrats are not the wage earners friend
