    That is just wonderful for Rush! Maybe now they can keep their drivers working instead of laying them off the week of Christmas and keeping them unemployed for 3 weeks. I don't know about other drivers, but we can't afford 3 weeks with no check! WTG Rush, congrats, remember one thing-The DRIVER! Without them, you can't fulfill your obligations.
