Isn’t truck driving one of those jobs where the earnings have actually gone down (compared to inflation) in the last 20 years?
Truck drivers aren’t covered by minimum wage. The feds keep tightening the screws when there isn’t justification. If they want to improve the industry the need to come down hard on shippers and receivers that beyond a reasonable time essentially steal drivers’ hours by forcing them to wait to unload or load .
Yes.. I hold a class A CDL with doubles/triples, passenger and tanker.. (dropped hazmat due to the insane fees to renew it)..
I do something else because I like to be home and the money is better.
