Tired of getting paid a lot of money for the same work?
You might want to consider driving for a trucking company.
Truck drivers earn an average of $40.70 an hour, according to a survey by the National Trucking Associations, an industry trade group.
They earn $19.00 per hour at an average wage of $15.00 an hour in the San Francisco area.
In New York, they make $19 an hour.
New York drivers, meanwhile, make a minimum of $13.25 an hour on average, according the National Retail Federation.
That puts truckers in the middle of the pack when it comes to pay.
New Jersey drivers make an average hourly wage of about $15 an hour with an average weekly earnings of $1,600, according a study from the National Employment Law Project.
The study found drivers in New Jersey are paid $6.10 less than truckers from San Francisco and $7.10 more than truck drivers from Los Angeles.
Drivers also earn less in New York than in California, where drivers earn a base hourly wage that can increase to $20.40 in some states.
Driving for a large trucking or trucking service can be a lucrative career, according for the National Transportation Safety Board.
The NTSB found that truck drivers earned an average $1.8 million a year on average from 2009 to 2012.
That included a $1 million annual salary, bonuses and profit sharing.
