Right wingers should be wetting their pants over this. It's all because our fat, lazy. overpaid American truckers won't work for the same wages and benefits that Mexican truck drivers get. Competion is competition, right?

You mean they finally got around to doing that? Because you whacky nativists have been beating that scare tactic since Clinton was President and NAFTA was signed.

So they are finally getting around to getting those long haul trucks across the border?

You guys on the left usually bemoan the fact that the middle class and middle class salaries are being dismantled by corporatists...

But you think this is okay? Really?

I think this is not a big issue, because they've been warning about this for decades now, and it never really happens. At the end of the day, truck driving is a job that needs local language and cultural skills.
