#1 Shutting down trucking schools as 'non-essential' during the Covid hysteria? Having an education establishment designed to feed universities and colleges and not vocational jobs? Increase micro-management by regulations? Drive independent owner-operators off your state highways? Make fuel more expensive cutting profit margins?

If you are a small company under a 100 personnel, go learn the Army lingo for the truck drivers, MOS et al. You can probably pick up some non-vaxxers real easily by offering pay and relocation incentives.

#2 Some time ago, I read an artical that said the ports in California had new emission requirements for trucks and that about 1/3 of the trucks servicing the ports would not comply, so could not work the ports. So now, we are having a trucking shortage? Who could have foreseen? Your "climate change" warriors score another one.
