I'm not trying to speculate, but if trucking is like retail, manufacturing, and other industries, then I can probably guess both the pay and quality of work isn't what it used to be. I was pretty surprised to read how many companies are failing and I wonder if they're mostly smaller businesses that have to contend with a ton of overhead in a really competitive market.

Or it's a 40 hour a week 4 day a week city job that comes with a pension, decent benefits, a living wage and as much overtime as you are willing to take.

It takes three months of bureaucracy and the ability to pass a drug test but those jobs are there. You have to show up at 6 am sharp or you'll get fired and be willing to muck about in sewers, it isn't all that bad a deal.
