Driver Shortage Caused by Low Wages?

thumbvlogIt seems to make a certain amount of sense that companies could just pay truck drivers better wages and forget about this driver shortage altogether. But is that all there is to it? Where would the extra money come from? How much more would drivers need to be paid for the career to attract enough new workers?

Catherine, vlogger at Smart-Trucking, claims that the answer is simple: Pay drivers what they’re worth and charge more for shipping.



What do you think? Is there any other way to end the driver shortage or is it time for companies to suck it up and pay out?
