From Jason Rhyno comes an interesting report on a gusty panel discussion hosted by Delta Nu Alpha. The group put together a panel to discuss the seven elephants in the driver shortage room. They include: Is driver shortage friend or foe?; The broken pay problem; Indo-Canadians (and sub-elephants stereotypes, racism and speaking English); and hiring women.
I thought the discussion was interesting, even though I read about it, like most of you, in Jason’s report and did not hear it in person. It was nice to see a driver was invited to participate. Guy Broderick is a good spokesman for industry issues, especially as they relate to professional drivers.
Anyways, it’s definitely worth your time. You can read the full story here.
