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.”. The shortage of workers is causing companies to look at non-traditional sources, including individual with a criminal record. The American Trucking Association expect a shortage of roughly 70,000 truck drivers in 2019, which will increase to 175,000 by 2026.
