Oxford comma's gonna get you....

A bunch of dairy delivery drivers in Maine say the state's overtime law is unclear cause of a missing Oxford comma ... and no less than the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals agreed.

...

The part of the law they're dissecting says overtime doesn't apply to employees involved in the "canning, processing, preserving, freezing, drying, marketing, storing, packing for shipment or distribution of: (1) Agriculture produce; (2) meat and fish products; and (3) perishable foods."

I'm amazed , amazed that

I'm amazed , amazed that Oakhurst has been able to hire and retain drivers without paying OT. Anyone who is even on the periphery of the commercial driver market knows there is a crisis in finding qualified drivers.Drivers who can meet all of the state , federal and insurance company criteria are harder and harder to find.......I wonder if Hood , and Garelick have done the same????

Article 9 of the U. S.

Article 9 of the U. S. Constitution stipulates No State shall pass any.....law impairing the obligation of contracts Article 1 Section 11 of the Maine Constitution says exactly the same thing. However, the federal government (Congress) never having been given that power has assumed it and when found unconstitutional by the first court, waited until Roosevelt could change the odds in his favor and got it declared constitutional. The consequences of this action plague us to this day.

Just thought you might like to know who and how they are here to help us.

Stanley Bennnet who died at a fairly young age ran the Company for
a number of years. His younger brother took over and an opportunity
to sell came along and he did, so It's no longer in the family.

They're all going to be replaced by robots in 10 years so what difference does this make?

Biggest problem, Johnw is

Biggest problem, Johnw is drivers passing a drug test, as you probably know.
It's always easy to spot the druggies.
They shave their head so that there's nothing but pee to sample.

The matrix that has been

The matrix that has been created by the state , federal and insurance companies that a driver must fit has become tighter and tighter.
Less young men and women are able to meet those standards to say nothing of being willing to do the actual work of driving.
The state was looking for 70 snowplow drivers earlier this winter.........The trucking industry says there is a shortfall of 50,000 over road drivers looming in the near future as older drivers retire....Folks are worried about health care,and rightly so, but worry about consumer goods shortages in the future , most stuff moves by truck...I don't think Amazon drones will take care of the problem...
