Truck driver jobs plentiful, but driver shortage exists

Across the country, it has become clear that while truck driver jobs are plentiful, companies are struggling to find drivers to fill the vacancies and haul goods across the country.

Some people estimate thousands of jobs are open and ready to be filled, and others put that estimate even higher.

As the economy recovers, those numbers are expected to increase even more.

WREX reports that Spirit CDL Training Services trains truck drivers to fill these much-needed jobs. Vice President Ken Bons says he knows there’s a shortage in the industry right now.
