An astute viewer sent me THIS article and I have to comment on it. It says that a milk company had to go out of business because it couldn't find qualified drivers. What is should say is that it could not get anyone to do the job for the money they were offering. That is something completely different. There are hundreds of thousands of people in the United States that have a CDL and do not use it. They couldn't find people at the low wage they are paying. How do I know they were paying a low wage? No one would take the job. Example: I have a driving job available. I offer company drivers $5500 a week salary. Would I be able to get drivers? Probably I would. So, somewhere between $5500 a week and what they were offering is what the job should pay. If a company goes out of business I say that is great. The low paying companies should go out of business. It is about time that drivers stand up and not take jobs that don't pay anything. People never put enough value on their time. Do not accept low wage offers. Drivers in the late 70s were making $100000. What happened?
