Will a company hire a paraplegic?

by Czech on wheels

I have a father who was a trucker for many years. Therefore, i grew up around the industry and have always enjoyed being apart of my fathers job. I became a paraplegic at the age of sixteen. I thought that me being able to drive a truck long haul was over. I have since found out that there are automatic rigs out there.

I am wanting to find a company willing to hire a paraplegic as a drive. Is there any such company out there?

Hunger may disturb sleep.  A light snack, especially warm milk, seems to help people get to sleep.


Various foods stimulate the body and disturb sleep.  Avoid coffee, tea, and cola drinks near bedtime.  Avoid heavy meals.
