Good find, Mitch. The article mentions the fact that the big trucking companies and subsidizing people who want to learn to drive because the industry has a shortage of 120,000 drivers.
We have hordes of young college graduates who end up doing fairly menial, low-paying jobs. Wouldn't it make more sense if some of them went into truck driving, a fairly menial but not low-paying job? Then, behind the wheel, they could listen to lecture sets by The Teaching Company and become better educated than the college grads.
