U.S. TRUCKERS JOBS ON CHOPPING BLOCKS: North American Union,
New World Order, Council on Foreign Relations
By Frosty Wooldridge
Via President Bush and Congress’ “Mexican Truck Pilot” program,
American trucking will change: for the worse.
Thousands of Mexican drivers without formal driving standards,
without drug testing and without legal passports to identify them to us—shortly
will invade America’s freeways.
They lack the ability to write and read in English, jeopardizing
safety checks and logbook protocol. To top it off, they lack experience
driving in snow and major metropolitan gridlock traffic.
As a former United Van Lines truck trainer and safety officer,
I charge President Bush and Congress for contempt of American truckers and
American jobs. Of all the lowball frauds Bush perpetrated on American workers—this
one takes the cake. Soon, he’ll be telling us that these Mexican drivers
“do the jobs that American truckers won’t do.”
Bush won’t reveal how many American lives will be sacrificed
as collateral damage on our nation’s highways. How do I know that many American
families will be ordering grave markers for their loved ones? Because they
will be killed by Mexican truck drivers!
What’s it like driving a big rig? How can a driver keep
all 18 wheels rolling for hundreds of miles without a mishap? What does
it mean to load and unload thousands of pounds? What’s the difference between
an independent versus a company driver?
America moves by trucks. Everything in every household
across America arrived by truck. American drivers loaded and unloaded everything
from your groceries to your dry goods. Along America’s highways, you see
portable parking lots (car haulers), hog haulers, steer haulers, bed bug
haulers (furniture), and hazardous material drivers. Twenty four hours a
day, the big rigs roll along ribbons of concrete that knit America into a
How do I know? My math and science teaching job paid meager
wages in the early 70s. Try $5,400.00 a year! To supplement this poverty
income, I earned a Commercial Driver’s License while trucking with United
Van Lines for 24 summers and three solid years in Denver, Colorado. I packed
20,000 pounds of furniture on Monday and Tuesday, drove my brains out—and
delivered on Thursday and Friday. If I didn’t find a return load, I rolled
my rig back to home base on Saturday and Sunday to load again on Monday.
I worked more than 70 hours a week like a beast for a good paycheck. I’ve
driven for Single Source Paving and Consolidated Freight. I know trucking
and truckers. Drivers must be highly qualified, alert, clear minded and
100 percent perfect 100 percent of the time.
Bush signed the death warrants for untold American citizens
with his pilot program. Why? As a teacher, I know that the average Mexican
truck driver left school by 6th grade. That means
he cognitively thinks like a 6th grader. Would you
allow your 6th grade child to drive
a 60,000 pound, 65 foot long tractor-trailer? How would he do at rush hour
in Houston, Chicago or LA? Would he possess good judgment in a snow storm?
Take a guess!
Denver experiences van loads of illegals transported through
the mountains every winter in four wheelers with many crashes and subsequent
deaths. Can you imagine what 60,000 pounds of tractor trailer does when it
loses control on a slick highway because the driver didn’t possess the brains
or common sense to slow down or shut down his rig?
Nonetheless, Bush invites Mexican workers into our country
who work under the “mordida” known as the “bite or bribe”. It rules in their
home country. Thus, drug cartels will enjoy easy access for their drug distribution
in false floors. People smugglers will enjoy easy transport for more illegal
aliens. Terrorists will offer a bribe to transport them to any city in the
USA—along with hauling their explosives!
As Mexican drivers spread across the USA, they will grab
loads from independent truckers by charging less per mile. They’ll undercut
our drivers, thus slamming them into unemployment lines. Companies will
make more money for their executives, while we’ll pay unemployment checks
for our out-of-work truckers.
After that, you’ll see black market loads proliferating.
In time, ‘mordida’ will become standard operating procedure not only at our
weigh stations and ports of entry but on bills of lading and other documents.
As more truckers lose their jobs, you’ll see violence occur
at truck stops as out-of-work truckers vandalize Mexican rigs and beat the
hell out of Mexican drivers. This won’t be pretty.
Our leaders prove themselves fools or idiots, or both. When
I call Bush to account for his actions, make no mistake, I would call any
president or congressional representative onto the carpet for such blatant,
Bush connived us into the Iraq War. Congress screwed one
million Americans out of their jobs in this country by insourcing H-1B and
H-2B visas from third world countries. Congress destroyed our manufacturing
base by allowing outsourced jobs to China without a veto from Bush. This
truck pilot program yields yet another form of insourcing jobs from Mexico
that will supplant American jobs.
Today’s American truckers will become yesterday’s drywallers,
roofers, construction workers, fast food workers, painters and landscape
workers: unemployed! If not unemployed, they’ll be working at wages that
make them not much more than slaves.
If you think Bush and Congress wage a war on terror with
the humiliation in Iraq, wait till you see their war on American truck drivers
in our own country!
