  • Reach out if you’re interested in blue collar work. I’ll give you my number and you can call even. I can advise from personal experience on truck driving, water/wastewater treatment careers, or railroad work.

    Truck driving has the benefit of being able to cut expenses to near zero by going over the road if you have few obligations. Getting a cushion this way makes settling down and going local much easier, even though I make more local than I ever did over the road.

    I don’t haul freight anymore either, and I don’t think that’s a long-term good prospect. Blue collar jobs where you work with the truck but have onsite work with it are a bit more resilient against automation I believe. Think wastewater cleaning, railroad, lineman, heavy haul, etc.
