Transportation employment slowdown likely to continue this year

January 28, 2023

Data from the Bureau of Labor and Statistics shows that while employment is still relatively high, fewer jobs are coming open – and that’s a trend likely to continue well into this new year.

Transportation has lost job numbers for the past four months (through November) but despite that, Rob Boersma, vice president of operations at – who joins Jason and Matt this week on the 10-44 – says that drivers’ interest in new jobs is on an uptick, even as fewer open positions come available.
