Freightwaves vs ATA and the fake trucker shortage | #168

Freightwaves recently came out with an excellent article about the trucker shortage and the fact that there isn’t one.  The whole thing is made up and I agree.  Of course, the American Trucking Association had to pipe in with their take on the shortage.  The ATA is not right on this and I explain why using this and the fake teacher shortage that has been written about lately.  As long as companies can keep trucks moving and have a 100% turnover there is no shortage.
