    well in CT its all unionized. So breaks are forced even for sub contracters. We were forced a 4 hour rest after an 8 hour shift. They encouraged us to bring sleeping bags and sleep on the floor in their offices! NOT ME. I drove home and slept in my own bed. After a few hours and a cup of joe out i went.

    That sounds like a plan! Although i'll probably just stop the truck out in front of the fire station and let another guy jump in to do his time.
