Truck Driver shortage has been a hot topic among the media for some time now but truck drivers and industry insiders say there are bigger issues no one’s ready to talk about. Key truck driver recruiting pain points include…

  • low pay
  • lack of respect
  • poor working conditions
  • demands of the job

Do you think there’s a trucker shortage in the US right now?

@Lawrence White Yes I agree there is a trucker shortage, and to make matters worse California has passed labor law (AB5) that forces owner operators to pass an ABC test to classify as an independent contractor. According to the California Trucking Association this could remove 70,000 independent contractors off the road in January 2023.

Greed and capitalism creates labor shortages because once people realize what trucker's know they're not going to put up that. The US has a labor in general in every industry.
