The Trucking Industry Needs You

Unemployment is currently at 6.3%. Yet one high paying industry has 235,600 job openings – the trucking industry.

Without trucks our entire lives would be different. Think about how many trucks you see on your day to day drives. They are crisscrossing this country 24/7.

According to Business Insider, the trucking industry is constantly in need of drivers. New federal regulations require drivers to take rest days and limit the number of hours they can work. These regulations mean that more drivers are needed to keep this transportation niche going strong. This isn’t a bad thing for drivers though, because wages may increase for drivers.

If you’re looking for an industry that offers job security, high wages, and plenty of job opportunities then the trucking industry is the place to be. Here are a few trucking industry employers that list jobs on the JobMonkey Job Board:
