MILAN, Ind., Nov. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Baylor Trucking is proud to announce the expansion of its Veteran's Recognition Program with a pay increase honoring all of those who have served.
Baylor Trucking, Inc. is saluting America's driving professionals who have served in the Armed Forces with an additional $.01 per mile increase, $1 per hour for local drivers and a 1% salary increase for all office associates. The pay increase is expected to provide an additional $50,000 to Military Veterans at Baylor and additional earnings for new hires.
"For the sacrifices these brave men and women have made for our country, this program is another way our company can say thank you," said Cari Baylor, president of Baylor Trucking, Inc.
The Veteran's Recognition Program at Baylor continues to expand. Veteran drivers are issued specially wrapped trucks decorated with the U.S. flag, the Constitution and patriotic themes. Company Drivers and Independent Contractors are applauded with Veteran ceremonies by Baylor team members. Each Veteran receives a star truck decal notating his/her branch of service. Veterans returning from recent deployment are provided specialized training to further develop their truck driving career.
Cari Baylor had the opportunity to spend time with General Stanley McChrystal and questioned, "What can we do to support those coming home?" McChrystal's response, "Hire them." Inspired by the General, Baylor has strived to develop one of the nation's strongest programs to develop career paths for America's Veterans. The new pay differential is another step to making a difference.
