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.
Pat will share some of his thoughts and solutions about driver wages, as well as discuss how trucking and the present trucker wage formula affects driver health.

Topic: Women Who Should Not Enter Trucking and other Truck Driver Training Student Turnover Issues
Less than 1 in 6 female student trucking students become qualified truck drivers yet they are encouraged to enter the industry with no clear parth to success.
Good Trainers are in shortage and often quit training truck driver students when they are not supported by the carrier. Students have been both accused and accuser in sexual harassment, racial slurs and other allegations. Poor support at carriers for trainers and students affects the good trainer population in ways most do not understand in the trucking industry.
Tracy Livingston, truck driver trainer and REAL Women in Trucking Director will discuss CDL Trainee problems that are causing good trainers to stop training students, esspecially women.
A lighthearted discussion regarding the very serious topic of federal regulations, state laws and commercial drivers' rights. Let's face it the regulaitons and rules will always be here, they may change, but they will always be here. Everyone knows a piece of paper doesn't make may you safet but the regulations can make you crazy! Missing putting a state abbreviation on a log doesn't make you an unsafe driver but many other actions do. So what's the purpose of all of these regulaitons and rules? That's what we will discuss. How we keep our sanity trying to follow them withou losing our main focus of safety or our minds. YOur input as a driver, a company officer, an inspector or a safety person is valuable. What works, what doesn't? Together we can increase the safety of our highways and maybe have some fun while doing it. Join us!
The Trucking Industry Continues to Claim they have an enormous qualified driver shortage, yet they have done little to correct the haphazard way CDL students are trained or rein in unqualified trucking carriers.
Females entering trucking are at greater risk of abuse in this circuslike system.
Join Us as we chat with 3 recent female CDL students to hear about their experiences entering truck driver training
