There have been a lot of "what did we learn from the election" articles and news stories since the election, so I thought I would throw in my two cents on one item in particular. What did I learn from the election? Well, a lot of things. What is one of the things I learned from the election that can help our trucking industry? The same thing a lot of people learned - Women are a force to be reckoned with!
Now if we're going to be honest with ourselves, we've actually known this for a long time. But when you see it laid out in those exit polls a hundred different ways over and over and over again, it finally hits you just how large of a force it is.
So, how does this relate to trucking? Just look at our latest industry news on the home page. With women already accounting for about 5% of all US truck drivers and with that number continuing to rise, lady truckers could definitely help put a big dent in the truck driver shortage.
All right guys, it's time to throw all the old jokes and stereotypes away and welcome this force to our ranks. As for All Trucking Jobs, we want to take this opportunity to officially and heartily invite any women already in trucking, in driver training or considering a truck driving career to Apply Now.
