same story every year, I almost swear that the trucking schools pay for these news stories.
it was the same story in 2009 100,000 trucker shortage expected (guess what there wasn't} 2010 150,000 truck driver shortage expected (guess again drivers actually got laid off) and here we go again. 150,000 truck driver shortage. please stop with the same old clueless stories.

Why would anyone want to drive a truck,lots of hours with little pay and too much crap to put up with. At one time I enjoyed it but no more. There are much better ways to make a living.
