It’s not that you need to be a trucker to be making a living.
But when it comes to getting paid a livable wage, a trucking gig can make a lot more sense than you might think.
According to a recent report from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, Canada’s largest trucking union, more than 1.1 million Canadians make a living off the road, while the average wage for the industry is $26,800.
The report also found that drivers earn less than the average for all occupations in the country, even though the number of jobs that require truck drivers is growing.
The study found that the average driver in Canada makes $19.25 an hour, a little more than $7.50 an hour less than what the average truck driver makes.

The answer: he’s usually older than his passengers.
As a result, he’s paid much less than his counterparts in other sectors.
The average age of truck drivers in Canada is 35 years old, while truck drivers are older than most workers in most sectors.
And the paychecks aren’t necessarily good for the worker either.
According, the Canadian Trucking Association, truck drivers earn $12.60 an hour more than the typical trucker.
That’s an increase of just 5 cents over the last year.

That includes overtime, and is the average salary for drivers in all sectors except the automotive sector, which has a much lower average annual wage.
In other words, if you are a truck drivers age 20-29, you are likely making a lot less than those working in the manufacturing and construction industries.
However, as the chart above shows, the number and average annual wages of truckers are going up, which is good news for all of us.
What is a truck?
A truck is a heavy-duty vehicle that has two wheels.
A trucker, or truck driver, is one of the most popular jobs in Canada.
It’s the job of transporting goods, from one place to another, and it’s also one of those jobs that pays the most.
According the CPAA, there are more than 16.8 million truck drivers on the road in Canada, and an estimated 5,000 trucks are in operation in Canada right now.
The number of trucking jobs is growing, with more people choosing to get a job driving the trucks rather than driving for other employers.
In 2018, there were 8.9 million truck jobs, up from 6.4 million in 2017.
The increase is mainly due to the increasing number of companies looking for trucks.
However as trucking becomes more profitable, there is also an increase in truck jobs for people looking for work.
In 2020, the median pay for truckers in Canada was $16.10 an hour.
That is about $1.45 more than for all workers in the same sector, including truck drivers.
The largest pay difference is between truck drivers and drivers in other types of jobs.
Drivers in the construction and agriculture sectors make $13.60 per hour.
And drivers in the oil and gas, manufacturing and transportation industries make $18.10 per hour, an increase over the previous year.
In 2019, the minimum wage for truck drivers was $11.50 per hour and drivers made $19 an hour compared to $15 an hour for truck workers.
It will also be interesting to see how much of the increase is due to more people moving into the industry, as well as whether more people will start working for trucks and not for other types.
How much do truck drivers make?
According to the CBAA, truckers make $9.70 per hour in 2018, a 1.7% increase over 2017.
And while the number is still relatively low, the wage hike is a sign that the trucking industry is becoming more popular with employers.
(READ: Why truckers may be getting the job done faster than the rest of us) However, the biggest increase is in the amount of money truckers earn.
The CPAG estimates that truck drivers will earn $8.70 an hour in 2020, up 6 cents over last year, and that truckers will make $20 an hour by 2021.
The overall pay increase will likely continue over the next few years.
What can I expect to pay for my truck?
According the report, the overall average annual cost of a truck job is $25,000 in Canada and the average monthly pay is $2,000.
So, if I was a truck company owner, I would expect to have a good profit margin on a truck that was worth $1 million.
