    Kinda long winded post. certain narcotics are legal in most states as medicine and until carriers start paying what drivers should really be earning instead of breadcrumbs you will get job hopping what drivers really should do get our new american president to create a union that is uncorrupted and legalize medicine for responsible use, I would ban beer at truck stops however and limit businesses prying on the personal lives of others starting at the top. Kill cell phones in all vehicles when in operation as in phone won't power on at all, Because let's look at reality job hopping is a symptom of the disease not the cure certain things will have be done to reset this country or it will continue to get worse and attract the worst to what just a mundane job that goes nowhere that is costly, and tax road use on the greedy hogs and shippers sucking up funds. And there is a lot I left out in between in my proposal to the new presidente in just few short months that will seem like eternity. Also road raids interior that this admin likes to do wastes time and money for something that is useless can get them at the border then when, also heavy tax Mexican trucks that want to dump their products here thank you.

    Exactly there are plenty felons driving, and at truckstops one easiest jobs a felon can get. there a lot crimes listed as felonies that shouldn't be basically want weed out violent offenders and sexual offenses I think. Thievery always been on circumstances Robbing Hood was a thief too maybe had good reason for being one all for one they aren't really the problem as I see it just easy scapegoat. None of these things is nothing new and unless the shock or the close mindedness is relevant won't have any progressive thinking and problem solving on issues that can bring strengths instead of weakness this country thrives on.

    I am a Canadian cel driver with one years experience in the USA and Canada . I am interested if USA companies hire Canadians ? From my interviewing of drivers based in the USA, they seem to earn a lot more then I do.

    Any suggestions or experiences being hired from another country, ie not residing in the USA at time of application for a driver position.

    Be more specific David.

    1. What do you earn?

    2. What are these Yanks (probably liars) telling you that they earn?\\

    3. What type of trucking work are we talking about? I'm thinking OTR?

    4. What type of compensation are you looking for? Many of these guys 'down here' are living in trucks and making .32 cents or so a mile and staying in their trucks for 6-12 weeks at a time. They are lifestyle truckers and live only to BS each other at the Pilot/TA/Flying J about how they own thousands of acres of land, horses...........blah blah blah blah and make $100,000,00 a year.. You've heard it all before.

    5. Cost of living in Canada is significantly higher than most of US. Be more specific.

    6 BEWARE OF THE TRUCKSTOP BULL****TERS!!!!
