Unemployed Truck Driver Looking

Share Your Story: Share Your Unemployment Story

By rick davis

The job I lost

I lost a trucking job in May. Now all my 20 years of driving seems to not matter since I have not drove recently. I have a lot of apps everywhere forlocal driving jobs to no avail. It gets gets really frustrating now trying for over road driving - have experiance but, been a few years some so far have said no.

What it's like being unemployed

Worry about the future. A man needs a job. Good that I have not many bills but draw unemployment to pay bills. Hope it lasts till things get going looking forward to retirement, so to not have to have get out in this or rely on anyone to bail you out


  • just look everyday and stay positive.
  • Keep busy with anything just when you think everything is going good. things happen.
  • Be prepared - when life is good always sock some in savings.
