Late Night Talk Show Host Decries ‘Exploitative’ Trucking Industry in Blistering Report

New York, NY — The host of a late night cable news and comedy show is decrying the trucking industry for what he believes are “exploitative” business practices.

John Oliver hosts the weekly HBO show Last Week Tonight.


In the most recent episode, Oliver explores the poor treatment professional truckers are often subjected to such as excruciatingly long detention times, coercion by dispatchers, and driver misclassification.

In the nearly 25-minute segment, Oliver attempts to dispel the commonly repeated “driver shortage” narrative, instead claiming the industry is suffering from a driver retention crisis due to unacceptable working conditions.
