September’s For Truckers And So Is The Nation: Celebrating Trucker Appreciation Week

With Trump’s economy adding 1.8 million jobs in July and beating expectations for the third month in a row, it’s clear his policies are capable of sustaining growth in the face of serious economic headwinds -- including one of the sharpest, nastiest and perhaps most avoidable recessions in modern economic history.

October Surprise In September

To the surprise and astonishment of many, the American economy is motoring along more robustly than perhaps even the most optimistic had hoped for given the circumstances. What is no surprise is how essential the trucking industry’s role has been in delivering a healthy portion of the nation’s growing economic recovery.

Thank God For Truckers

President Trump and the U.S. Secretary of Transportation Elain Chao both agree: “Thank God for truckers.” And we at The Roemer Report couldn’t agree more. Because of the amazing role truckers have played throughout 2020, the observance of National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, Sept. 13-19, is even more significant, according to American Trucking Associations (ATA).

Covering National Truck Drive Week our friends at Trucker.com report that there are about 3.5 million men and women serving as professional drivers and with two goals in mind: delivering goods reliably, securely, but also keeping the nation’s highways safe.
