Trucking Driver Shortage
America has been in a constantly fluctuating economical state for well over the past decade. One of hardest hit institutions is the trucking industry, where demand for competent professional drivers, since hitting an all-time low during the recession, is now struggling to fill much needed positions as demand has gradually increased.
New legislation, has been recently introduced by Columbus state representatives in an aim to tackle the crisis and lower unemployment rates in Ohio. The new bill, ‘House Bill 155’ could provide trucking companies with funding through tax credits to run training programmes for people interested in a career in the industry.
The programmes will be aimed at the unemployed and underqualified. State representative Stephanie Howse has said; “This investment from the state of Ohio will be another step to help families break the cycle of poverty.”
The Ohio Trucking Association is supporting the bill, which will help them to increase driver numbers and the legislation will work in conjunction with other bills, which help to relieve the cost of CDL training and invest in career paths for school leavers and veterans looking to convert their military driving licenses.
The state wide tax credits available would be capped at $3,000,000 to be dispersed evenly between eligible companies, and will be expedited through the Ohio Development Services Agency (ODSA), who provide support with training and technical assistance in community and business issues across the state. The possible influx of fresh drivers in the industry would be as high as 8’000 and the programme could help to maintain these figures in the future.
