I'm not the first, certainly won't be the last."Driver shortage"
There's only maybe 15 drivers in all at any give time and I personally know one who left Oct 31 and another who left in like June or so. And mentions of at least one or two more who left somewhere along the lines that I knew of but didn't really keep in touch with. I don't even know who might have left without any fanfare because the group chat in my phone is mostly numbers, not names, and I'm not social enough to know many people. Nor would I notice a particular phone number being in an old group chat and not a new one.
IMHO that's kind of a high turnover in a short time for such a small office. Especially for owner operators where the stakes are higher.
I have no idea what's happening at other offices (terminals, hubs, whatever you want to call them).
