DEREGULATION AND THE PREVALENCE OF BLACK TRUCK DRIVERS

This study explores the influence of trucking industry deregulation on the prevalence of black truck drivers. The trucking industry consists of two major employment sectors. The previously regulated for-hire sector is composed of two subsectors, trucking companies with employees and individual owner-operators. These subsectors represent the core of the trucking industry. They traditionally provided over-the-road, long-distance carriage usually on a common-carrier basis. The other major employment sector, private carriers, was prohibited from providing freight services to the general public and from employing owner-operators. Their service was often local and limited, as with department stores that deliver goods to their own customers.
