    I get sick of hearing about the driver shortage BS. There is never a shortage of drivers, just a shortage of companies willing to pay a decent rate for qualified drivers. This is just an excuse for the carriers to import more H1B visa immigrants from 3rd world countries that speak no English, and put them behind the wheel for .10 cents per mile. That's all it ever is when we hear about "driver shortages".
