Need some advice - husband thinking about going to trucker school
With the way the economy is today with lay-offs & downsizing my husband discussed with me that he heard that OTR truckers are where the money is & before a company hires you locally you have to start out being an OTR trucker.
I told him he has my support & I trust him meaning I know he wouldn't get involved with a lot lizard - why go out for hamburger when you have filet mignon at home!
My concern is the pay - the girls I work with when we went to lunch I brought it up to them & they told me that they heard OTR only get paid pennies per mile, we would be eating peanut butter & jelly sandwiches the rest of our lives, be filing for bankruptcy, & he would be bringing home bed bugs!
Are these horror stories true? Any advice would greatly be appreciated!
Thank you & have a great day!
