Retirees are increasingly looking to the trucking industry as new career possibilities. Many older adults retire and soon find themselves with too much time on their hands. They get bored watching television all day. They soon tire of congregating with older couples at center citizen centers spending their days socializing, watching movies, playing cards or other games. They long for something more productive to do. A career in trucking gives them the opportunity to see the country while earning money. This often gives them a sense of accomplishment, adventure and satisfaction. These retirees are some of the newbie truck drivers entering the trucking industry.
