Help Wanted: Truckers

Dash Wasserman Dec 29, 2010

While we’re inching out of a major economic downturn, some are asking, “Is now a good time to embark on a career as a truck driver?” Apparently so. David Brancaccio explores another alternative indicator, this time in Cuba, MO.

Listen to David’s story on Marketplace Morning Report:
