In a new report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, trucking is the deadliest job in the United States. This is certainly not reflected in the pay of the average truck driver. These numbers reflect deaths while at work, not all of the side effects of driving a truck for a long period of time. Stress, lack of exercise and lack of human interaction certainly is the cause of many more deaths of truck drivers in America. It is a sad fact, really. Everything everyone uses is brought or handled by truck drivers yet we are looked down upon and die at work more than anyone else. Truck driving should again be seen as a profession and not just a job.
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.
