Never Worry About Age Again
August 18, 2019
Age is often an issue in the regular 9 to 5 world. Fortunately, that's not the way it is in the trucking industry. Whether you are 21 or 61, opportunity is waiting with a chance to earn the respect and compensation you deserve. What could be better than that?
According to the American Transportation Research Institute, the average age of truck drivers is actually older than the average age of employees in other sectors of the U.S. workforce. Those who are in the 45-54 group are reported to be part of the largest cohort employed by the Trucking Industry. While some drivers aged 18-20 are not old enough to meet CDL requirements, there are few limitations on those who are 21 and older.
Outside of the trucking industry, age discrimination is real. As noted by AARP, two out of three workers between the ages of 45 and 74 say they have seen or experienced age discrimination at work, and job seekers over age 35 suggest it is a top obstacle to getting hired. And in the high-tech or entertainment industries, it is reported that chances of experiencing age discrimination are even higher. Thankfully, there are places in the transportation sector that do not devalue age. Millis Transfer is one of those employers.
At Millis Transfer, you'll find our workforce includes a wide ranger of drivers. Further, opportunities at Millis Transfer are limitless for those with the desire and ability to make a difference in the transportation field. When it comes to the trucking industry, no one is more important than drivers, both young and old. For more information on available opportunities, contact Millis Transfer at 1-800-937-0880.
