A look at the diminishing compensation provided to truck drivers, and why the trucking corporations get away with paying so little.



Drivers aren't paid for the time they wait for their truck to be loaded or offloaded, and traffic and other road conditions, as well as safety regulations that limit the number of hours they can be on the road in a given day, cut into their mileage totals.
