March For Our Lives Calls for Confiscating Guns, Investigating the NRA, and ‘Reformi…March For Our Lives wants sweeping gun control, and a lot of other things too. On Wednesday, the group released its Peace Plan for a Safer America with the ambitious goal of reducing gun deaths and injuries by 50 percent in 10 years. “You see these shootings on TV every day and very little happening around it.

Department Of Labor Wants Carriers To Be Able To Ignore Court Rulings On Major Driver Pay ...

Department Of Labor Wants Carriers To Be Able To Ignore Court Rulings On Major Driver Pay …Trucker advocates have been making headway on the issue of driver pay reform. Multiple lawsuits brought the subject into the spotlight in recent years, but a new opinion published by the U.S. Department of Labor could threaten the progress that’s been made. One thing that sets trucker pay apart from the rest of the U.S. workforce is that most truckers are paid per mile, not per hour. But despite that, federal minimum wage laws still apply to truckers just like all other workers. In a lawsuit brought against PAM Transport, drivers argued that PAM had violated the Fair Labor Standards Act by not paying them at least minimum wage for all hours worked. The drivers claimed that since they were still performing job responsibilities even while not logging their time as ‘on duty,’ that…
