Up to 1,000 Oakland Truckers Will Be Out of Work

Up to 1,000 independent truckers at the Port of Oakland will be out of work by January 1 because of the port’s new ban on older, dirty diesel trucks. The truckers had hoped to receive public funding to buy new trucks or retrofit their existing ones, but the Bay Area Air Quality Management District ran out of money, the Trib reports.
