Sailors of the Concrete Sea (with CD-ROM)
Sailors of the Concrete Sea summarizes data collected from
interviews with truck drivers conducted by the Sloan Foundation
Trucking Industry Program in 1997 and 1998. This data, unique in its
depth and scope, provides a finely textured picture of the work and
work life of over-the-road truck drivers in the United States.
Presented with supporting data, the book provides information on
widely ranging topics, including driversí hours of work and rest,
of truck-borne technology, form and generosity of pay and benefits,
employer retention, sources of training and job experience, use of
log books and violations of hours of service regulations, and views
of their jobs.
