Potential Husband Wife Team

I currently have a good government job paying about 65K per year with benefits. However, I am a single income family. My wife is thinking about get her CDL to get a job and earn extra income. If we were both to do it, what is a reasonable earnings figure for a husband and wife team OTR.

Thanks in advance.

100k - 120k realistically your earnings will be on the low side as rookies. I have teamed for several years and I would advise alot of discussion between the two of you. I've been trucking for 18 years and have a very good job with an automotive manufacture contractor logistic company and I make 60k a year and thats about the high end realistically in the industry. If Iwere you I would hang on to that Government job.
