Richard Wilson, regulatory manager for Trans Products Trans Services and a passionate driver advocate, delivered an impassioned talk at the 2012 Truck Driver Social Media Convention happening today, October 27, and tomorrow, October 28, at the Harrah’s North Kansas City hotel and casino. Wilson argued for near-term structural improvements to boost pay and other efforts to creat more favorable conditions for those in the industry already — and to bring more drivers into the industry. Part of his talk was captured in the video below, where he illustrates the need.

His guest post on the Channel 19 blog from earlier in the year captures the essence of his talk, if not the energy of his delivery.
