OTTAWA, Ont. Young people may not be as down on the trucking industry as many thought, according to new research conducted for Trucking HR Canada. While today youth are concerned about the prospect of long periods away from home, long work hours, poor working conditions and perceived safety risks in the trucking industry, the travel, independence, challenging work and steady employment opportunities do appeal to them. This according to the report Youth, Tomorrow Drivers: Attracting Canada Youth to Opportunities in Trucking. report was based on extensive focus groups, site visits, online surveys and interviews with high school students and educators. Educators who took part noted students are concerned about extended time away from home and safety risks, but said they are aware of the ongoing need for labour. The educators also expressed concern about low pay rates within the industry. Other barriers as well were identified by the study. It found today youth are less passionate about cars and driving than previous generations, are less likely to have a driver licence and likely to be inexperienced drivers into their early 20s. Still, Trucking HR Canada found the study also offered reason for optimism, as many youth do recognize the availability of jobs within the industry. researchers behind Today Youth, Tomorrow Drivers found that Canada youth have a relatively positive view of the trucking industry, and are attracted by many of the benefits offered by industry careers, says Tamara Miller, Trucking HR Canada director, programs and services. data can be used to refine messages which target youth. A related analysis of school to work programs can also be used to guide initiatives that will build bridges between the school system and careers in trucking. The report laid out several key recommendations, including: developing marketing materials and branding elements specifically targeting youth; identifying or creating entry level career paths into driving occupations, so that youths aged 19 25 can find a role within the industry that may lead to driving careers; developing new industry education partnerships; and using up to date National Occupational Standards, to review the opportunity for high schools and colleges to develop national driving related curriculum.

New drivers will make mistakes in the early years that can turn them completely off trucking as a career choice. Even veterans make mistakes that cause them to re evaluate this profession. There are some big numbers in the amount of people holding a CDL that have just walked away from this business out of shear frustration. Until there is a stable catalyst that can transition newbies into pros, they will be left to the devices of trial and error or they will simply walk away. Nothing more than a mill because the proper training was never invested. There are subtle nuances OTR that cannot be taught in school and must be experienced in a hands on environment when the situation presents itself. A piece of paper does not mean Pro. Correct me if I Wrong but I seem to remember numbers around 25% regarding candidates holding a CDL that are not using it in their employment. If a person can have a career that involves less time at work and more time for play for the same money, hmmm, let see It the wages that are the problem. That, and getting a start. Nobody wants to hire a newbie. If Dad an owner/op with a good reputation, a kid may have a fighting chance in the industry, and that because Dad is willing to put his neck on the line for junior. How many Dads are willing to do it? They talk about an apprenticeship program, but nobody wants the administration headaches especially for a job that really doesn pay very well. It back to the wages again. I think we are missing the boat here We need an apprentice program if we are to keep and bring in new drivers. We have to have a program that will keep them in the drivers seat. I think the present form of paying a driver is not very welcoming. Compare the driver to a license mechanic and look at the hour and wage difference. The mechanic start with 10 months of training and gets paid 60% of the wages in most cases. After 4 year of work and Block training he is at full wages and a license Professional. How much does a 5 year drives makes after working 60 to 70 hours a work compare to the license mechanic after 40 hours of work. The first company to start this system will have the Driver shortage and retention problems solved. Now how do we pay for this and still make money?? Look at what you pay a shop per hour to have your unit fixed? It going to take everyone to get on board for this for it to work and for every one to remain competative at the same time. Hope this get the creative juioe flowing Hey GL is an apprenticeship program for trucking. It is the Ontario Commercial Tractor Trailer Driver Apprenticeship Program. Apprentices will participate in about 12 weeks of training with a mentor and 40 weeks of on the job training. During their training, apprentices will learn to: Plan trips and inspect equipment Safely handle and secure cargo Conduct routine vehicle checks and report problems Prepare documentation including bills of lading, border crossing and custom forms. Participants will also learn other critical skills, such as developing a deeper understanding of the life style adjustments of long distance driving, application of appropriate laws, customer service, safety regulations and the principles of the trucking business. Anyone who thinks that the reason for low youth interest in the trucking industry is anything but the very low wages is kidding themselves . In the major metro areas the wages are so low that new drivers can easily find low skill and low education jobs that pay far better. General construction labour pays in the 20 28 range. Why would anyone work for less in the truck industry . Many many many metro area trucking firms pay so little that generally they use temporary foreign labour to fill the void and run equipment in very poor condition . There are two ways to increase the short fall in the labour force for the truck industry . 1. Increase wages to attract people. 2. Increase temp foreign labour from the 3rd world amd keep driving down wages. I do think the 2nd option is far more popular in the industry. Its been popular for the trucking firms and gov who get voted in because the temp workers become permanent and then vote for the gov who brought the policy in. The truck industry is in a race to the bottom. We all know it but were just aftaid to say it. With no punishment for firms neglecting employees and their equipment and labour laws. Do you really expect anything to change? Dave your comments are 100% accurate. If one thinks that the banks are bad in Canada for abusing the Foreign Workers Program they are rank amateurs compared to what the trucking industry gets away with. In the last 25 years wage rates have fallen by 50% for truckers. Sixty percent of drivers who hold a license to drive a semi rig have left the industry, or not been able to find work to begin with. Canadian graduates of trucking schools by the thousands can not find work because they do not have two years of experience for insurance purposes. Then trucking companies go to the Federal Government and claim they can find experienced truckers (the term the trucking industry actually uses is drivers so they import them at taxpayers expense while denying jobs to Canadians because the trucking companies do not want to pay further to train new drivers who are recent trucking school graduates. The trucking companies do not want to pay higher insurance premiums for new drivers so they expect the Canadian Government and the Canadian taxpayer to subsidize their massive inefficiencies. The taxpayers in Canada in effect pay to import experienced foreigners (ie: drivers while recent Canadian truck school graduates remain unemployed by the thousands.

Air Jordan 5 Retro Black Varsity Red Metallic Silver,Back in the "good old days," a kid came home from school, gulped down a glass of milk, changed into grubby clothes and raced outside to meet up with a pack of neighborhood kids. Together they all ran around wildly, catching frogs, climbing trees and making mud pies. All of this was done without any adult supervision, or maybe mom or dad poked a head out the front door a couple times to make sure everything was under control. Yes, kid nirvana still exists in some neighborhoods around the country but many would agree that those days of children playing freely and safely outside are endangered. Today's kids are either over programmed with dance classes, math tutors, and soccer practice or they're glued to a screen. What's more, parents often perceive the outdoors as being unsafe, even though crime is down overall. And then there's the woman in Texas who saw two kids, ages 6 and 9, playing on the front lawn next door and decided to call the cops because she thought the kids shouldn't be playing outside unsupervised. It turns out that the kids' mom was actually sitting outside in a lawn chair but when the police arrived they didn't believe her story. They threw Tammy Cooper into the police car and into a jail cell.

It was the nation's fourth largest timed 10k race last year, with more than 15,000 registrants. Dave McGillivray, a national organizer of mass athletic events, is working again with Bellin Health to plan the 10k race, or 6.2 miles, for June 13. "The idea (of waves) is for each of the runners to have a more positive experience," McGillivray said. "If that works well, we'll keep it. If it doesn't, we'll make some changes again." Organizers are changing the race's start and finish to better accommodate a wave system. Waves will be organized in Baird Park, and finished runners will follow a path to Astor Park. The 10k course will be the same as last year. About 250 people crossed the finish line per minute last year, organizers said. McGillivray said he expects more people to participate this year if the Bellin Run follows recent trends. Air Jordan 5 Retro Black Varsity Red Metallic Silver Although the profiles of necklines and sleeves were constantly changing, women's dresses in the Victorian period remained stiff, full length affairs. The upper half consisted of a fully boned corset, while the voluminous skirts were supported with metal hoops well into the 1870s. Even when a supporting structure was finally abandoned in the last decades of the Victorian period, skirts continued to be heavy affairs, often weighed down with embroidery and with the addition of bustles to the rear. Evening dresses often had short puffed sleeves, while many day dresses had wide, loose sleeves making room for cotton or silk under sleeves. Sleeves of a slimmer profile came into fashion at around the same time hoops went out.

Their lifestyle, education, and job opportunities were predetermined based. 19th Century Women Sailors Clothing The trend toward sailor fashions for women began in 1846.
