dc.description.abstract The trucking industry in the United States is going through a major driver shortage. The shortage began in the late 1990s, and the hope for improvement is dim. Drivers are retiring in staggering numbers, and young people are straying from the industry. Most drivers say that pay rates haven't increased with increased cost, and the home time drivers enjoy is shrinking. Young people aren't willing to take a job that will keep them from home when they can work as a janitor and be with their families daily.The demand for drivers is also increasing as US jobs are sent overseas and more and more product needs to be driven across the country.Companies industry-wide are trying to solve the problem that will bring more potential drivers to the jobs. Meanwhile, they're working harder at advertising job openings.
