Or its just a temporary supply and demand problem.
At 16 regt I recall it because a load of factories were opening in the town (Bicester) like Mars and Budweiser, in the days before the internet, they had to hire locally to start with.
They were offering Hyster drivers 15 quid an hour, people were signing off to get on the money train (Most suppliers had both Hyster and HGV).
Then the factories sorted their shit out and temp jobs wages went down.
I reckon in a few months, the truckers will be back to close to their old wage offers.
To a degree you are right and rates will come back down
But not down to below a tenner an hour that has been common up until now
Brexit and Coronavirus have undoubtedly done British lorry drivers a great service
