Too much complaining.

In 2019, I hit over $85000. Hit 80 by my 3rd year. My truck driving school was free. I drive at night, my route start at midnight. My cousin from Haiti just came here 3 years ago. Been driving for a year and a half for Budweiser doing the grain trailer, he pulled over $74000 in 2019.

There's lotta money in trucking.

There's a perspective you can get this video that is far away from reality. If you want to get into trucking, do it. Get your Class A and run the score up. Here in Ny and Nj, with 1 yr of experience you qualify for 120k jobs.

Trucking might be the most underrated career someone can do. Seems like they're in high demand, paid very well and can sometimes get their truck driving license for free, doesn't require a college degree (does it even require a HS Diploma?). It's a great honest living.

How many of you truckers are k*lling yourself with the labor aspect of loading/unloading your trucks or driving on tight deadlines?

Yo I'm really thinking about pursuing this. Getting tired of the rat race in corporate America and want something that gives me a more flexible schedule to do other endeavors and still make a great salary.

You from NJ? What's the neccessary steps to getting schooling that's affordable or even free for that matter?

Its alot of bullsh*t in trucking. Like being promised a whole bunch of sh*t like:

Being home at certain times, yes things happen like weather and traffic and other sh*t but n*ggas will straight up lie to you so you wont get the home time that was promised.

Dealing with police.
Weather/ Chain laws. Honestly i rather be stuck in traffic than deal with having to drive in snow.

Money. n*ggas will say you will average 1200 a week but you only get 800 because of sh*t they aint tell you about.

Theres more but thats all i could think of this late

It's really what you make of it
There are PLENTY of n*ggas making minimum wage driving. You have to budget your time and keep those wheels moving as much as possible. Don't drive=don't get paid.
n*ggas that's really getting money staying out at least 3 weeks at a time.
You can go to any accredited school for "free"
Sort of lol. There's no upfront fee, but you'll owe whichever trucking firm that sponsored you a year's driving, or like $1500

It depends, when you're in school, you review the info so much, you know it without knowing you know it. Isk bout the driving part tho, I went to a mom and pops school and honestly I couldn't drive worth a fu*k, when I got out, luckily I had a good trainer when I got on with my job...rip john Watson

Yeah man I get home every weekend with the company I work for and made 55k after taxes. After being in this industry for 3 years now I just a*sume that every who isn't getting paid is a know it all who does nothing but complain. I can't tell you how many times I've had convos with truckers at customers who tell me stories about how they're always into it with their dispatcher and refusing loads then they're all surprised when they don't get miles some of these dudes have no self-awareness.



Edit: this is propaganda. This video is from a full calendar year ago and the comments are turned off? They knew the truckers was gone come on there and debunk that whole narrative them weirdos tryna paint on there

Also it brings me alot of joy when I see young black men like myself out here doing they thing. One of the few industries where n*ggas ain't gotta play the game to make bread. Plus the more endorsements you get, the more doors that open for you. When I try to put people on but the main thing that turns them off from trucking is being away from home. That made me think about this book I'm reading 'All the places to go' and the chapter where people often never reach their full potential in life cause they choose comfortability over stepping outside their comfort zone. Alot of people don't understand that you don't have to make a career out of it, you can literally drive a few years, run up some bands, and do with that money as you please but again comfort zones. Oh well, I can only try to enlighten young brothers, it's their choice to make. @ can you explain your comment, what is that supposed to mean?
