Biden Admin Plans To Fix Supply Chain Crisis With Trucker Incentives

The White House announced a plan to combat the domestic supply chain crisis through a recruitment drive for the trucking industry, but failed to acknowledge the role they’ve played in causing the driver shortage.

The fact-sheet of the “Biden-⁠Harris Administration Trucking Action Plan to Strengthen America’s Trucking Workforce,” noted that despite wages going up 7-13% across the trucking industry, employment “is still below pre-pandemic levels.”  

They blamed outdated infrastructure, the coronavirus, and “a historic volume of goods” being purchased, 72% of which are trucked across the nation, for the supply chain crisis. Predictably the announcement failed to acknowledge their own role in gutting the sector.

Trucking industry leaders warned the Biden administration that the now court-stalled national vaccine mandate for employees with more than 100 employees could cost the industry “37% of drivers at a time when the nation is already short 80,000 truck drivers,” with the holidays just around the corner, in an open letter penned in November. 

The administration further restricted the industry by requiring that non-resident truck drivers from Mexico and Canada get fully vaccinated by Jan. 22 in order to cross the border. The mandate was pushed back from the original Nov. 8 deadline. 

A spokesperson for the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association slammed the move as an example of “how unnecessary government mandates can force experienced owner-operators and independent truckers out of business.” 

According to the administration’s fact-sheet, they have created four initiatives to reverse the damage. 

$30 million in funding will be allocated to states that expedite the CDL issuance process by the Department of Transportation (DOT), but fledgling drivers don’t seem to be conducive to creating a “safe trucking workforce” as advertised.

They also plan to roll-out Registered Apprenticeship training programs through a “90-day challenge,” which will be funded with $8 million from the Department of Labor (DOL). 

The Biden Admin estimates there are potentially 70,000 veterans who are “likely to have certified trucking experience in the last five years,” and plan to recruit them. 

Finally, the DOL and DOT are launching the “Driving Good Jobs” initiative to study truck driver’s issues, identify regulatory actions to support trucker retention, and develop best industry practices.

Good for you, Bethany. This Republican sees your attitude as the American way and the true Republican way of doing things whereas the remarks by the RINOs Casey and Pedge 2 are clearly indicative of the DDT way. (Dirty Donald Trump).

A little while ago, (10 minurtes or so) I commented to Bethany and to Marie and my comments were quickly erased from the system – so it appears. Is that because my Republicanism doesn’t jibe with the writers of the article to which Bethany responded and I supported her? Seems like TrumpTrainNews only wants to see remarks that discredit Biden and make Trumnp out to be the angel he is not.

All Biden seems to be accomplishing is making mistakes and then trying to undo the mistakes with more mistakes. What a loser Biden is. Even Obama does not endorse him. Said if anyone can scr#w something up, it is Joe biden.

That is correct. Obama made all kinds of mistakes, and the fools kept electing him. Why! Because he was Black. They wanted a Black President….well they got one and he was a disaster. Same idea with Kamala, they wanted a Black Woman as VP and then push her into the WH as president. She is also a disaster. Did it ever occur to voters, that the Democrats and the Blacks seem to turn great cities into ghettos in a matter of 10 years! Look at Detroit, Baltimore, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Portland, etc.

Typical demoncrap strategy! Create a system of rules and regulations to formulate a previously non-existent problem. Increase every conceivable tax to exacerbate the problem. Throw immense amounts of money AT the problem. Then, seek RINOs to join them in increasing ALL these negatives. THEN, condemn Republicans for solving all of these issues.

For hidenbiden, and all the damage he has done, he can’t possibly fix what he has scewed up, for our country. Everything since he was elected, has turned into failure, because of his total incompetence. It is just going to keep getting worse, until this country is a third world banana republic, that hidenbiden is turning it into.

How many actually know about the plans that were drawn up decades with a map of the new lines for 10 countries? You want to know why Biden and Obama and the rest of the globalists, don’t want borders for America? Because we are to merge with Mexico and Canada. The same thing will happen in Europe. Their idea is to merge many nations into 10 distinct regions, and then have one person over all 10 regions. Hmmm, sounds like prophecy is coming true. There is already a map, and it was on the United Nations website. It’s probably been scrubbed from the site, but the plan is already in gear, hence the C-o-v-d scare. Scare the people enough and they will willingly give up their freedom. Anyone that wants to hear the truth, go to “getalifeministries.com”, top right corner is the C-o-v-d update. There are 5 updates. I suggest watching them all with the 5 being the best so far. Get educated, the truth is there.

Sorry JB. You’re a year late. You’ve created a colossal and chaotic monstrosity that will take years to fix. Appoint someone who still has a brain and go back to your basement nap. Undoing your wreckage can never be completed because too much has been lost in the turmoil.

At this point Joe would do well to appoint President Trump as his Chief of Staff and follow all his directions. That’s the only thing that has a chance of getting us out of this mess that Joe has created.

My warning to AMERICANS is this. It is very clear that the Democrat politicians can not FAIRLY win in 2022 or 2024. The challenge for the Republican Political Party is to be totally aware that the Democrats are going to cheat and they are going to do it in many different ways. The Republicans better be PREPARED for the dishonest actions that the Democrats are going to perpetuate. It is coming as sure as Sunday follows Saturday.

The Democrats know that is the only way they can win and it WORKED in 2020.

Keep throwing money at all the problems, and you still have problems! By the time the programs and incentives are passed out, it’ll be next Christmas. Maybe we need to have Kamila determine the ‘root cause’ of the latest problem. Never mind, it’ll be Christmas 2023 and we’ll be backed up at ports forever and still not know what the hell is going on!
Meanwhile, the taxpayers get to keep footing all the freebies with no results, let alone progress! What a system we’ve created out of DC!

“Biden Admin Plans To Fix Supply Chain Crisis With Trucker Incentives”
Considering the FACT that the harryass/biden administration CAUSED most of the supply chain crisis by its VACCINE MANDATES, can be HUGELY alleviated by GETTING RID of the MANDATES!! But we KNOW that will never happen!!
