I have been out of school for a couple of years now and although I have been doing fairly well I have decided that I want to make more money. Obviously you need to know about computers or technology if you really want to make money, but I have been looking around to find free truck driving schools and cdl training for the moment. It may not be the sort of opportunity that it used to be though. My uncle made really good money and he drove trucks all over the country for decades. At any rate the problem lies in the fact that the world is really changing and it is changing in ways that really harms the working class jerk like me. Already they have cars that can drive themselves, although it is not really so practical. Before long they are going to have the johnny cab from that Arnold Schwarzenegger movie.
In fact it probably would be relatively simple for an automated truck to do the long haul part of things. A truck driver might be needed for the start and end of the journey, but once you get on an interstate freeway the truck could probably take care of itself. It really is not so difficult aside from dealing with other drivers who might not be smart enough to avoid hitting an enormous robot truck. Of course the truth is that this is out in the future, but it is hard to say how far it is going to be. Even then you probably will have jobs where the driver delivers locally. You can make really good money delivering beer and that seems like something that a robot would not be able to do very well. The driver has to do more than drive of course and that’s a new story.
