I'd like to ask , not necessarily what you pay your drivers, but what is the average hourly pay in the big city to run a tri axle . Were nowhere close to nj but just wondered .

Union scale in NYC is $37 an hour

Yes the women at the motor carriers unit are very nice and helpful. In and out usually. It's more time going down there than anything.
