LETTERS: Undercutting comes at cost
It makes me sad and laugh at the same time about the news of the truckers’ strike at the waterfront.
They talk about long waits and poor wages. This was mostly brought on by themselves.
Over the years, the trucking companies have been lowering their wages to grab the business over others. It has been spiralling down since to the wages they make now.
They have been their own worst enemy by cutting the throats of their rivals by constant undercutting.
So, after they come to some kind of agreement, who will get the business over the other, and will it start all over again with the undercutting?
