Yes the Truckers Strike of 2008 is still going on this Thursday, April 3rd. I know it's hard to tell because of the lack of news coverage. I am sure you can guess why it is isn't getting any news coverage - because big oil doesn't want it to - and they do control our media.
Until an effect is seen and complained about loud enough - it will not be noticed.
Local newspapers will print stories about the effect it is having long before it will ever get on TV.
Another reason to park it: When you do your taxes at the end of the year and add it all up do you see yourself working for less than $10 an hour driving that tractor trailer? Can you justify doing that? and being away from your family for that? Somethings gotta change.
After all - if you are sitting at home on strike there is no one to interview at the truck stops anyways. So keep on posting daily to the news links listed on the post from the day before which you can see below this post.

Here are a few words of encouragement from my favorite motivational person Ralph Marston:
What tomorrow will bring Life is dynamic.
And for that reason, the bad news is never as bad as it seems.
Whatever may happen, whatever condition may arise, you can adjust to it and make the most of it. Not only can you survive in the face of changing conditions, you can indeed prosper.
When you look at new developments through the lens of your existing assumptions, they can often appear overwhelmingly negative and hopeless. Yet when you start working your way through the new conditions, brilliant opportunities begin to appear at nearly every turn.
Circumstances are constantly changing, and even the changes are constantly changing. As you continue to adapt, and as those around you also adapt, positive new possibilities emerge and take root.
It's difficult to know precisely what tomorrow will bring. Yet you can know with confidence that whatever tomorrow does offer, there will be a way for you to make the most of it.
For the value and goodness of life never go away. They just continue to be presented to you in new and more fulfilling ways.
