dc.description.abstract This paper is an attempt at a better understanding of trucking and the trucker's lifestyle. While truck drivers make up a considerable proportion of blue-collar workers in the United States today, as a society we are often unaware of many of the aspects of their lives. Through interviews with four different people who drive or have driven trucks professionally, I have gained a certain understanding of the trucker's way of life. In this paper, I try to explain what I have learned from my interviews, supplementing them with information obtained through traditional research of the motor carrier industry. Overall, this paper is a combination of a researched study, a documentary, and a personal reflection on the role of truck drivers in society today.
