On this edition of Oregon On The Record, you'll hear how the Oregon Workforce Partnership and the Lane Workforce Partnership are teaming up to train hundreds of new truck drivers in our region.

Jesse Quinn of Lane Workforce Partnership and Georgia Conrad of the Oregon Workforce Partnership explain that there is a massive shortage of truckers in our state, and new drivers are needed to keep our economy rolling.
