To the Editor:

Re “ ‘We’re Throwaway People’ ” (news article, May 23):

We disagree with the premise of this article — that truck driving is “low paying” and “unhealthy” work.

Indeed, trucking is one of the few roads in today’s economy that lead to the middle class without requiring a college degree. For some, being a professional driver is a dream come true. For others, it is a financial lifeline denied by other industries.
