Truck Drivers Make $72,000/year according to CNN

TRUCK DRIVING – A GOOD INDUSTRY TO BE IN

According to CNN and many other sources the high demand for professional truck drivers are driving up salaries way above the normal. In this article, CNN concludes that many drivers now are making $73,000/year, but we have found others where driers are making even more, as much as $82,000. With this in mind getting a CLD in 15 days is a good idea for many who wants to get a secure and well paid job.

TRUCK DRIVING – A SAFE JOB

Truck driving will be a safe job for many years to come and truck drivers will likely see salaries going up further until the shortage is met. However, that is likely to take a while, since it is estimated that there is a shortage of about 300,000 truck drivers right now September 2016. Projections from various sources that monitor the truck driving indust says that it will take a few more years before the supply and demand of truck drivers are in balance. Thus, for a good while longer truck driving is a great field to get into and it is relative to other jobs, rather fast to get a certification as truck driver.
