We were talking about this at work the other day. The managers at Menlo Park have had a couple of long time carriers mention that they really can't afford to keep their routes any more. When gas was $2.50, you may have been able to make a buck or two off your route. Now, with the lessened amount per paper you get due to the dealerships taking a cut, and gas skyrocketing over $4 with no end in sight, well, we (the Teamster managers and I) think that not only are the carriers going to quit, the dealers won't be able to staff the routes and they'll fall by the wayside as well.
This blog is for me (Joe) to keep in contact with my friends and family who I don't see too much of because I work nights. If you're wandering by checking out the blog from the Internet, well, you're welcome too, I'm 50 years old and live in California. I'm married with two bonus daughters and three grandchildren. I write about sports, scooters, vacations in the RV, my atheism, funny pictures, and pretty much anything else I can think of. I welcome all opposing views as long as you can keep it civil, my mom does come by on occasion. And, as always, the true focus of my life is my marriage to Sandra and fulfilling The Plan. Though the blog is in the top 5.
