The American Trucking Associations estimates that America will need 90,000 new truck drivers on the road every year for the next decade to keep up with transport and shipping demands.
Some of the issues at the root of the problem include low unemployment rates, the lifestyle of living on the road, and the pay.
"The truck driver shortage is being driven by a lot of things," Jeff Shefchik, president of Paper Transport Inc., said. "The low unemployment rate throughout the country , it's even lower in Wisconsin. Also the truck driving job is a challenging job."
