Stop the madness with coverup.

The hard cold truth facts. 
The Railroads pay good money, but you sell your life to get it. If you
can not hold a 5 day a week spot, them you will work on the road extra
board. On call jobs destroy your health and your home life. Most 5 day
jobs are locals or yard jobs. Yard jobs don't pay squat compared to
long haul. You deal with the devil as you go along.
The railroad medical insurance is not bad! We would never get on the
street policies for what we pay for now. 
You WILL JOIN A UNION! You will NOT BE HAPPY WITH THEIR
REPRESENTATION.
The Railroad will violate your agreements and steal pay from you. They
will abuse you. COLD HARD FACT.
Your health will be pushed to the limit either physically or mentally.
YOU WILL FANTASIZE ABOUT KILLING YOUR EMPLOYER!
Marriages are destroyed by this business. Quality time at home is
negatively effected. Train schedules ARE NEVER RIGHT AND YOUR PHONE
WILL RING AT ANY TIME COMPLETELY UNEXPECTED.SURPRISE ATTACKS ARE
GUARANTEED! Sleep patterns will be a complete mess.

Railroad life is not for everyone. Working condtions can be dangerous
and managers can and do intimidate and harass employees. If you are not
thick skinned, willing to take a beating, freeze, sweat, be up all hours
of the night and day and be away from your home or family overnight,
then this job is NOT FOR YOU!
