Since starting my working in transportation career in 2005, I have been aware that the way in which a driver is paid hasn’t changed in the previous twenty years and until this day remains the same. A driver is paid by how many miles they travel in a week. In general, a truck driver is paid between $0.29 and $0.52 per mile. A driver on a lower per mile rate will be using better equipment compared to a driver on a higher rate, who will be using less comfortable equipment.
Most companies are employing more drivers than they require, to satisfy their contracts. No thought or consideration is given to the drivers’ need to pay their bills. This is due of course to the new regulations, which are seen as a liability and not an asset by companies.
