The Denham Amendment is All About Legalizing Wage Theft

There are no two ways about it.  The trucking companies are trying to get away with stealing from you. It is robbery with the law on your side.  It is a grand scheme by the American Trucking Association to steal from you.  Only it is only "grand" for the trucking companies. For you it really sucks. Fact is, they are trying to take food off your table.     And if you don’t step up right now - then they are going to get away with it.

At the behest of the trucking industry, Congressman Jeff Denham from Turlock/ Modesto, California, has introduced legislation in Washington which could substantially reduce the amount you are paid and eliminate your right to take meal breaks and rest breaks.  This is called the Denham amendment.

The Denham Amendment is going to result in you not getting paid for all time you work. You are no longer going to be entitled to paid rest breaks or get meal breaks. This is a huge money grab by the trucking industry. Only they are grabbing you and your family’s money.


Profits vs. Safety

You know and I know that public safety is tied to drivers that are rested and fed. That doesn’t matter to the trucking companies.  All they care about is their bottom line.  All they care about is getting their owners richer.  Safety be damned if there is a dime to be made.  Only this time, we are talking millions of dollars and more for each of these companies.  This is a classic “profit vs. safety.”  


This is the Last Thing You and Your Family Need - To Have Your Wages Stolen

Many of you realize that I represent more truck drivers, delivery drivers and Teamsters than any lawyer in California.  My Dad was a driver. Pop drove a bread truck.  I know what it means to have money stolen from you by the company.  It's hard enough already to make ends meet.  This is the last thing you and your family need.  But if you don't act now - they will get away with stealing your wages.


Why You Must Act Now!

Your urgent action is needed to stop this from happening.  A decision as to whether or not to include the provision eliminating your rights will be made soon. You need to act today.  Please don’t wait.  You need to jump on this right now.


What Can I Do to Stop My Wages From Being Stolen?

You need to send an email to the chief of staff of the Congressman in the Congressional District that you live in and the chiefs of staff for the Senators in your State.

When you send an email directly to the office of the the Congress person in your district / Senator then they will know that their constitutes are concerned over an issue.  This is why you need to include your address in your email so the Congress person / Senator will know that you live in their district or State.

Otherwise if you don’t tell them  that you live in their district / State they will think your email is spam and they will ignore it.  Therefore it is very important that you include your name and address in your email to the Congress person and Senators.

If you don’t know the emails of the Congress person  and Senator - simply send us an email to [email protected] or fill out the Contact on this website.  We will get it right to you.


What Else Can I Do?

It would be great if every person from your household that is 18 or older to also send an email standing up against this trucking company takeaway.

The important part is for you and your family members to do this right this very minute.

And it would be great that once you send the Congressman/ Senator  your email that you also send an email to other truck drivers and their families so they can help also. Just give them a link to this web page and tell them to help out too.


It Doesn’t Cost You Any Money to Have Your Voice Heard

It isn't going to cost you any money.  This is your chance to really make a difference.  Your email can make a HUGE difference. 

We will give you the contact info for your District's Congress person and your State Senators

When you email us - we will provide you with sample emails that you can just cut and paste and mail to them.
