Why they don’t want to be truckies?
THE real reason young people don’t want to be in the industry is because the old blokes don’t like sharing the tricks of the trade.
I went from Sydney to Brisbane the other day left approximately 15 minutes before a guy that had been doing the run for three years.
He also had to go to the Gold Coast first.
He pulled in behind me five minutes later.
When I asked him if he had been to the Gold Coast first he just said “What do you think?”, then I asked him how long he stopped for he just said “For how ever long I was supposed to”.
Seems to me the older generation of truckers don’t want the young guns taking their jobs.
