Workers are so scarce that, in many parts of the country, low-skill jobs are being handed out to pretty much anyone willing to take them – and high-skilled workers are in even shorter supply.”. Freight rates are on the rise, and there are signs that the shortage are unlikely to abate. Many other jobs such as Material Handler, pickers, and other general warehouse position are bretween $12,00-$14,000, with fork life operators making up to $16 range.
