Check your local Craigslist. The one in my city has a lot of ads looking for Ground drivers...way more than I've ever seen before. A few are from Kelly Services, which provides temp drivers for peak, but most are looking for permanent employees. And the vast majority of those don't mention wages or salary, just that the job is "easy" or that the money is negotiable. The ads that do mention money are right where they've always been....flat-rated salaries from $500-$650 per week depending on whether you drive a straight truck or a stepvan. On one hand, Ground is expanding, but on the other, it looks like they're short of drivers in an improving job market. Raising wages threatens the scam, so it will be interesting to see what Fred does.
