The last time I took my Ford to a dealer they charged $150.00 per hour for labor with a 4 hour minimum. And outrageous parts pricing. A friendly parts man sold me items at 40% off list and there were 50 and 60% off columns in the list. There aren't many repairs that I can do but some independent shops will negotiate costs.
Yeah, right.This will never happen. There's a lot going on in the cab of a big rig and every car on the road tries to pass you. Accidents caused by driver error? Prove it. Any problem drivers would be a liability and fired.
It's a stressful job working long hours away from friends and family. Have you ever been in a train cab? They are not designed for comfort.Noisy and diesel fumes. A friend worked on trains in New Mexico, good pay and benefits but he was stressed.
I worked for The City of San Diego and career advanced to a $65K per year job. One of my sons is a Registered Nurse, the other works as a machinist for a small machine shop that has many contracts with local aerospace and aviation companies.
