The Death of Trucking Being a Good Job.

L.A. Daily News - America’s trucking industry faces a shortage. Meet the immigrants helping fill the gap. The trucking industry complains that it doesn't have enough truckers because people don't want the job while not increasing wages even as gas was going up. The industry answer is to hire people from other countries and work on self driving 18 wheelers. I read articles where they said that immigrants made good truckers because they were willing to work longer. Wait, I know truckers and over the road truckers are limited in the number of hours they can work for the safety of others on the highway. In fact, they are required to keep log books showing how many hours they have been driving. So the fact that they are willing to work more hours than are legal is a good reason to hire them?
