    Not enough pay for the sacrifices you have to make for that job

  • CoolCaiman on November 28, 2021

    This is all manufactured chaos to push self-driving trucks into the market sooner.

  • Gary Evergreen on November 28, 2021

    Can we get the drivers from Mexico?

  • Edward Carberry on November 28, 2021

    I quit the one job as had to drive my own truck 152 Kms to and from work at my expense!
    Had my hrs cut as to where I could start to get paid from and to! So that was 1.5hrs a day cut.
    Then had less hrs work each day as that was the job which they put me onto!
    I can't afford to subsidies jobs anymore!

    I've tried to find the truck driving school so I can drive a truck I've been trying to find a place for the last few years you know what they tell me unless you have good credit we can't put you in school. Hell was driving a f**** truck

  • Gene Hall on November 28, 2021

    It's too hard to become a driver quit lying you truck f**** driving schools you Penny waste m**********

    The pay estimate he’s saying is WAY off. Yes the so called salary is rising, while the miles being paid are decreasing. So they give them take away. Regulations also help reduce the ability to increase your compensation. Regulations also make it very difficult to start your own business. Do your research. You can do very well as a professional Driver. Learn the game, learn which companies are good and which will rip you off. Talk to older more seasoned drivers then compare. Know your worth and ask for it. I will tell anyone the truth about this industry without any sugar coating period!!

  • Chris Hanson on November 28, 2021

    I have been a plumber for 38 years. I made a good decent wage. I am now seriously thinking of going to truck driving school .

  • Nope on November 28, 2021

    It's been open to women forever, they just don't want to do it.
    And no, have you seen 21 year old's driving cars? We definitely don't need less-than-21 drivers driving…a tractor-trailer.

  • Tyler Geer on November 28, 2021

    Smoke weed now that it’s legal in a lot of states no driving job. BUT you can be a full blown full pledged ALCOHOLIC and have your cdl-a.

  • BLUNTTRAUMA on November 28, 2021

    It's not a shortage of truck drivers. I've been driving for over 10 years. The problem is all the regulations in the industry

  • Kurt M on November 29, 2021

    80k a year. You gotta start offering oilfield rates of 150-200k a year if you want drivers for daily goods

  • Daniel Webster on November 29, 2021

    Blaming truckers is just the lies of the zionist state dept, this supply line farce is by design, the only trucker problem is keeping buttgig and his kind out of truck stop bathrooms!

    The Covid 19 shut downs made it difficult for drivers to find lodging, food, showers, and destinations open to receive or load their cargo. That caused a lot of drivers to leave earlier than planned also. Some just couldn't afford to keep their rigs on the road.

  • mike a on November 30, 2021

    I tried to re-enter driving as a part time oil driver. I am off my regular job early in the day plus I have Mondays off. I thought delivering fuel oil to homes and businesses would be a seasonal part time goldmine. There was a glitch. Oil companies don't want part time drivers. The hazmat and background check is costly too. I already have a CDL B and air brake endorsements. I needed a tanker endorsement which I couldn't get without the hazmat and fbi background check which I wasn't paying for unless I had a job prospect. I could plow snow just as easily and I have many years experience doing so. Still, the plowing companies and towns want someone available 24-7, not someone to come in for 8-10 hours then go to their regular job.

    I am Driving the 18-Wheelers since 2000. Today is the hardest stress 4 Drivers who to drag 18-wheelers, it is ELD. I arrived to the Kroger Distribution Center at Cincinnati, OH, at 11pm. The Security doesn't allow parking overnight in the Kroger, Cincinnati, OH. All around business posted NO TRUCK PARKING. So I click ELD to SLEEP, and slow 4 M/H driving by service Road searching for a parking. I found a parking next to Ohio State Highway Patrol Trooper. Yes I parking next to it building. I awake up at 4AM and drive 4 M/H to the Gates of Kroger, Cincinnati, OH. Security let trucks to enter to parking at 4AM. I get in the Kroger parking around 4:30AM. Get sleep again, but it is complicate to return in sleep condition. So I just fall in sleep somehow. By 7AM the Receiving does knocks in my door. I wake up again, I am like drunken because my brain is still sleeping. I get open doors and back up. I get in bed again, but I can't fall in sleeping, I am not a robot, but I want to have a function of a robot to disconnect my self. By 8AM the Receiving does knocks in my door he brings my BOL. I do not have time to sleep again because my time back at 9AM. Something f…n not perfect, but it is my job, I am Driver.
    And finally a Weight Station, and DOT Inspection, in US it is monsters.

    80 grand company driver with no life and rarely home. Yeah that's possible perhaps. 60 to 65 is more accurate for a driver who likes to see the house on occasion.

  • Dustin Johnson on December 1, 2021

    There is no shortage.. There's like 5 million people with a CDL who don't use it

  • Dustin Johnson on December 1, 2021

    This guy's full of it

  • Holton H. on December 2, 2021

    The companies don't pay drivers enough and regulations prevent them from making decent money.

  • Shana 'Gutripperrr' Uncry on December 2, 2021

    Corporations, State Laws, Pay caps, Stress on your Body, and Away from Family makes it never worth it.

  • Kahlikoh on December 3, 2021

    Can we bring in a driver please for interview.

  • Steve Guy on December 10, 2021

    Bring in a guy who makes money from making drivers to ask if we need drivers. I call Bs.

  • Charles Hanna on December 16, 2021

    LIES , LIES ,LIES
    THERE IS NO TRUCK DRIVER SHORTAGE !
    THE TRUCKING INDUSTRY IS RAMPANG WITH TRUCK DRIVER WAGE THEFT
    THE TRUCKING INDUSTRY AND THE ATA / AMERICAN TRUCKING ASSOCIATION
    HAS CLAIMED SINCE 1988 THAT THERE WAS AN IMMEDIATE NEED FOR 65,000 TRUCK DRIVERS
    SINCE 1988 OVER 400,000 PEOPLE HAVE GRADUATED FROM CDL TRUCK DRIVING SCHOOLS AND COMMUNITY COLLEGES
    THATS OVER 12,000,000 NEW TRUCK DRIVERS IN THE LAST 33 YEARS AND THE INDUSTRY IS STILL CLAIMJJNG TO BE SHORT 65,000 DRIVERS
    TRUCK DRIVING IS THE 5TH MOST DANGEROUS JOB THAT DOESNT EVEN PAY MINIMUM WAGE
    THEY LIE ABOUT THE AVERAGE YEARLY ANNUAL TRUCK DRIVER SALARY BEING $80,000.00 A YEAR
    THE MAJORITY OF TRUCK DRIVERS EARN LESS THAN $60,000 PER YER
    THERE'S NO MENTION OF THE OVER THE ROAD TRUCK DRIVERS BEING AT THIER ASSIGNED WORK STATION 168 HOURS A WEEK 48 WEEKS OUT OF A YEAR
    TRUCK DRIVERS QUIT BECAUSE WAGE THEFT IS RAMPANT IN THE TRUCKING INDUSTRY

  • michael martin on December 17, 2021

    Under 80k a year is not worth it. As an otr driver myself nothing under 100k. My family and I sacrifice a lot of home time staying on the road 2 to 3 months at a time just to get 1 weekend home. "34 hours ".

  • KJ on December 17, 2021

    First of all it’s not $80,000 as an average pay. Even if it was $80,000 you’re away from home the whole time 168 hours a week at $80,000 a year that’s $11.90 per hour

  • Marengo Czar on December 27, 2021

    The average truck drive only make that much if they are owner operator….regular drivers it depends on the company. But, most I know are in 40k -50k out of school and may max at 80 to 90 depending on the company.

  • Flying Trucker on December 29, 2021

    Awesome interview

  • Flying Trucker on December 29, 2021

    I'm making $90k a year as a company driver. Home four days a week
