SVCC Truck Driver Training Program
According to the American Trucking Associations (ATA), trucker compensation has been going up 8% to 12% a year in recent years. That's a lot higher than wages for the rest of Americans, which have barely budged recently.
The median annual wage for a trucker that works for a private fleet, such as a truck driver employed by Walmart, is $73,000, according to ATA.
The Labor Department pegs the median annual salary for all truck drivers at around $40,000.
