    Thursday 5-21-15 6PM ET  Tonight we are going to combine 2 of the hottest issues in Trucking; Truck Driver Health and Trucker Wages.


    We all know that the Trucker Lifestyle drastically affects their Health, but what about how drivers are paid?  Could that be weighing in on driver health also? Our guest tonight believes it does.


    Our guest will be Pat Hockaday from TruckersUnited.org. Mr Hockaday is known for JoJo's Paper, an all-out crusade to change the way drivers are paid.

    Don't Call Me An Ambulance Driver Miss Daisy

    in Education

    Every once in awhile we like to talk about the whole ambulance driver nametag. Should we care and why? Does it matter and the perception that gets us there.
    But don't we own part of the reason we are called Ambulance Drivers? With EMS facebook pages touting Taxi this and shucking that, its no wonder we can't shake the name. Plus the fact that the bulk of the call types we get really don;t leave us with much else to do but drive the ambulance.
    A sensititive topic for sure but not as bad as Volly vs. Paid which we are saving for another episode. Join us for this one with your thoughts and suggestions on how we shed this brand we have made for ourselves once and for all.

    Open Forum onTruck Driver Health

    in Health

    We will be starting a series of Health Shows on AskTheTrucker "LIVE" addressing the health concerns of the professional truck driver. Health becomes not just an issue for a driver’s profession and career, but a serious concern for life and the quality of life.


    Many drivers are plagued with health issues such as obesity, diabetes, sleep disorders, respiratory disorders, high blood pressure, arthritis, and others, including autoimmune diseases which are on an upward climb nationwide.


    Join us as we discuss a few of the organizations and driver groups who we have aligned with within the industry, what they are doing to address driver health concerns, and how they are reaching out to drivers to offer help and support.


    Read more via: Driver health info and support for concerned truckers.


    Are you concerned about driver health or are you addressing your own or lending help to others? Come join the conversation!
