Problems finding and retaining drivers

How's everyone doing finding employees. We've not had any luck. We went 6 months before we got one and he's moving on because it's to hard. Just curious how everyone is handling it. Hopefully you have better luck than us thanks.

Most folks around my part of the woods have around a third to half of their fleet parked because of it, I have also noticed several types of businesses start to park their trucks and hire someone else to move their freight, even entities that don’t like each other now seem to be working together.

I don't have employees but I know it is hard to find a good one or any one. Guy hit my trailer the other day at Cargill . His truck was already smashed in with no bumper. Owner of truck apologized and said he was down 3 trucks cuz no drivers. Had to hire who ever he could to survive. Here the class b drivers are not working. I know big nice company that can't find anyone . Plus a trash company owner I know can't find drivers. Hold tight. It's going to get worse. Biden talking about more lockdowns if people refuse to take vaccines.
