Deregulation initially helped increase the income of the driver but drastically cut the income of the O/O.  If you compare the value of the dollar today to that of regulated trucking times, the driver of the 21st Century makes less than the driver of the WWII era.  Today’s trucker makes less per hour than a “burger flipper” at any fast food chain. Hourly a driver working the maximum allowed 70 log hours a week, which is approximately 100 actual hours, while being compensated by the mile, actually receives the equilivant of $8-$10/hr in true compensation or an amount less than minimum wage in many areas.
