Back office weekend work.

I’m in the back office today. I’m sitting at my shipper waiting for tomorrow’s appointment so that I can pick up my hazardous material load. I’m on the road 24 hours a day seven days a week 365 days a year. The federal government mandates that if I work more than 70 hours in eight days I have to take 34 hours off. By working nine hours a day seven days a week I alleviate ever going over that 70 hour work week. That allows me to work less and earn more than a company driver. I became an owner operator because I knew that there was no way that I was going to retire in a position that I wanted to be in. Being an owner operator I get to choose my loads versus a company driver who is normally forced to take a load that he may or may not want. I choose the revenue that I want to bring to the truck and I choose the locations that I want to travel to and from.
