America has a massive truck driver shortage. Here’s why few want an $80,000 job.
Not a bad article, but the headline is a little misleading, as it's pointed out that the median pay for truck drivers is $42,000. No wonder people don't want it. Not to mention the Orwellian "telematics" monitoring drivers on the road and government regulations that even I, as a general fan of government regulation, think are excessive.
So is this good for the railroad industry that the truckers can't find drivers? Are the railroads having as much trouble finding workers?
