There will be a shortage of nearly 50,000 truckers in the United States by the end of this year, according a new report by the American Trucking Association (ATA). If you are looking for a new position or a career change, this is a great way to go! http://money.cnn.com/2015/10/09/news/economy/truck-driver-shortage/index.html

Hey Mark, Thanks for this info.. There’s been allot of buzz in the news on the trucker shortages and incentive programs to train more skilled drivers to fill these jobs The U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) just announced $2.3 million in grants, to 13 technical and community colleges across the country to help train veterans and their families for jobs as commercial bus and truck drivers. I would encourage anyone interested to call these schools today and ask about enrollment and the funding application process. Take a look at the institutions below: California – West Hills Community College District, Coalinga, $199,460 Georgia – Central Georgia Technical College, Macon, $146,771 Maryland – Cecil College, North East, $101,825 New York – Erie 2 Chautauqua Cattaraugus BOCES, Angola, $105,201 North Carolina – North Carolina Department of Transportation, Raleigh, $200,000 Ohio – Cuyahoga Community College District, Cleveland, $195,040 Oklahoma – Central Technical Center, Drumright, $200,000 Pennsylvania – Lancaster County Career & Technology Center, Willow Street, $194,811 Pennsylvania – Northampton County Area Community College, Bethlehem, $134,400 Pennsylvania – The Sage Corporation, Camp Hill, $198,504 South Carolina – Orangeburg-Callhoun Technical College, Orangeburg, $197,399 Texas – Alamo Colleges/ St. Phillip's College, San Antonio, $196,680 Virginia – Tidewater Community College, Norfolk, $199,879

All true Mark.

I am 42 and never had a dui/dwi nor criminal record. In the 90's I almost joined this field. Wish I had. But I don't read anything good about the trade these days. I know sucking it up for the duration of the AGREEMENT to stay for xxx days in exchange for your CDL is a known issue going in so just know it won't be the best time but for one like me who is a widower with no kids not coming home a lot esp in the begging, And it pays something while you learn. I just take a lot of pride in my work and I don't need to be where there is no appreciation of that.
