As you know, I get tens of thousands of emails a week and the tone is changing. OK, maybe not that many but people like you regularly write and what used to be totally bad news is now beginning to get better. Drivers are reporting increasing miles. Not from 1000 to 3500 a week but miles are on the upswing. Some of the hardest hit segments are still hurting but those that are rolling are seeing a mileage increase. This translates to a pay increase. That is good news. States, like my state of Indiana, are releasing their unconstitutionally imprisoned citizens to begin commerce. As they butter themselves up to fit out their doors and reacquaint themselves with daylight they will be purchasing items and more drivers will be needed. This won't happen overnight but it will happen. Trucking is still and always will be a good career well into the future. If you are thinking about truck school, now is the time to get started and get that license going. As the economy picks up there will be spots open from drivers not returning to the industry. Go to a local truck school even if you have to take loans for it. Let's get this country moving again!
See you on the road!
Hi! Welcome. I'm Mark and I've been a professional truck driver for over 33 years, the last 19 years at the same company. It is time that drivers got paid for every minute that we work and we are treated like the licensed professionals we are.
