Plow Driver Shortage Hits Ahead of Winter

Plow Driver Shortage Hits Ahead of Winter

Milwaukee’s Department of Public Works is warning that streets in the city won’t be plowed as quickly this winter because they don’t have enough snowplow drivers.

Public Works director Danielle Rodriguez yesterday told city council members that it’s “extremely difficult” to find drivers this year. Just like with school buses, plow drivers need a CDL and Rodriguez says there are not a lot of drivers available. She figures Milwaukee is at least 80 snowplow drivers short heading into the winter.
