Raising pay works.

Trucking industry players have been complaining for a few years about an acute shortage of labor in their industry, as demand for trucks rises but people resist launching a career in a somewhat unpleasant, low-prestige industry that has a hazy cloud of disruption by automation hanging over it.

So just recently, J.B. Hunt, the biggest trucking company around, announced that it did something radical — raised pay 10 percent — and the company says it’s working.

What a “novel” idea.
