As I left the supermarket, this USA Today print cover story caught my eye, "Rigged: Forced into debt. Worked to exhaustion. Left with nothing." I took another look at an online version of the story and read that many truckers are being classified as independent contractors and working long hours only to owe the shipping companies money or receive a 67-cent check at the end of the week. For too many, the American nightmare continued through the Obama years, and goodness knows what awaits them under the current regime.
