quoting Thomas Gale Moorevia Business Insider
Sunday, October 20, 2019

Tens of thousands of truck drivers were scheming earlier this year to strike. Such a work stoppage could have tremendous implications – some 71% of freight is moved by long-haul trucks, including groceries, manufactured goods, and even money. “We’re not all fat slobs, and we don’t all do the stereotypical trucker things,” Will Kling, a truck driver based in Reno, Nevada, told Business Insider last year. “Trucking has been forgotten.”
