Massachusetts towns offer snowplow drivers up to $310 an hour, fearing that the labor shortage may force winter school delays | Business Insider

Must Read

Snowplow drivers in Massachusetts are being paid up to $310 per hour, as officials fear that a nationwide driver shortage may cause school delays and traffic closures this winter. Come storm season, snowplow drivers who are authorized to use commercial equipment such as construction loaders will benefit the most. The Boston Globe stated that contractors and construction businesses who formerly provided snowplow drivers and equipment to towns are now competing for individuals with CDLs due to the truck driver’s scarcity. According to government statistics, hourly salaries in Watertown, a suburb 20 minutes outside of Boston, range from $86 to $310 based on the type of equipment employed. The town’s hourly wage for a “snow melter” is $5,500 per hour, but the machine itself can cost up to $3 million.
