blamed on the Russian war in Ukraine that analysts say sent food prices which were already surging before the conflict to a record that had nations index of world cost has soared another 13% as of last month not only paying for consumers but it's worsening the global hunger crisis Bloomberg's Greg Jarrett reporting Global news 24 hours a day on air and on Bloomberg quicktake powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries I'm susannah Palmer This is Bloomberg This is balance of power with David Weston The state of America and energy is strong Our nation has the resources and the expertise to meet our energy needs Eventually we'll end up with a vaccine that will be able to do better against multiple variants Where the world of politics beats the world of business The fed has to raise rates And by the way that's a good thing The cause of inflation has been this historic pandemic which is upended life in so many different ways In particular has upended America's supply chains Balance of power with given Weston on Bloomberg radio Coming up this hour doctor Anthony Fauci on facing another wave of COVID and what we need to prepare Plus it's been 12 years since president Obama's landmark healthcare legislation became law We take a look at fixing some glitches with doctor Catherine baker dean of the Harris school of public policy at the University of Chicago and finding the 81,000 truck drivers that we need with Chris spear president and CEO of the American trucking association but first when it comes to the Ukraine war it's the humanitarian aspects of what's going on that really grip all of us so deeply For more on the size and scope of the refugee crisis I talked with international rescue committee president and CEO David Miliband So I think it's important to realize that there are three groups of people in humanitarian distress There are those traps in towns and cities where there is fighting There may be 8 million of those There's then people as you exactly rightly say who are on the run inside their own country internally displaced people there's about 7 million of those who have fled more or less from the east the south and east to the west And then thirdly there are the refugees of whom according to the United Nations figures 4.2 million now over two and a half million in Poland alone So you can see the three different fronts of the humanitarian need and three different sets of humanitarian needs essentially it's about getting aid to people inside Ukraine And when they're refugees beyond Ukraine when they're safe it's about helping them keep their lives going until they're able to go back David I said that's a really helpful breaking down of it for me because I do understand it but it did not occur to me I believe you said 8 million people Ukrainians are trapped in cities and other places where they can't get out because they're shelling going on Well that's right Obviously the most famous case is the appalling situation in Mario pole which is in the south east of the country a 120,000 people originally 400,000 people But then there are other cities that aren't fully besieged but that are under fire And obviously the pictures and the stories that are coming out the research and documentation of civilians being killed speaks to the level of impunity that is present not just in this war but others around the world at the moment I'm sure that what you and others like you but you at the IRC can do depends on which grouping people are in Is there anything you can do for the people under siege and then what happens with the displaced people within Ukraine and then further the people who have escaped into Poland or other neighboring countries Well the first priority for the people who are under siege or are caught up in the fighting is obviously to get supply lines for food for the healthcare needs pharmaceuticals frankly cash as well to keep the market economy going And then the water extract electricity infrastructure And in large parts of Ukraine that continues to be possible access is pretty good but there are places like Mario pole that are cut off and obviously in many of these places it's dangerous For the internally displaced the second group who fled to the west access is relatively straightforward There is an economy functioning and the Ukrainian government's health ministry for example is running the health centers that we are supporting So there is good access there And then obviously when you're in Europe it's an organizational question not really a risk question The organization of such large numbers of people flowing across a border in such a short period of time is unprecedented since the Second World War but there are serious governmental and non governmental agencies plus the international system through the UN supporting that Well let's talk about the international assistance whether it's private or public because as you describe this whatever else this is going to take a lot of money to try to support these people and help these people Where does the money need to come from and where does it need to go to What sort of level of commitment needs to be made Well it's interesting that the response.

"Foster. The American Trucking Association says 72% of domestic freight by weight is moved by truckers and that an 80% of American communities everything is brought in by truck. The data also says there just aren't enough drivers to move those goods on the road that there's been a shortage since the 19 eighties and we've been told that's a big reason why there was a spike in lumber prices, for example, and my gas prices are high. Because the players can't get product where it needs to go. An association of actual truckers, not their employers, like the data, says there is no shortage of drivers. There's a shortage of drivers willing to work for the money, they're being offered to do a long, hard, dangerous job. There is an extremely high rate of turnover in the industry, not a shortage. And That that turnover Is higher than any other type of industry. Other industries don't have anywhere near as high a turnover as long haul trucking Narita Taylor is the public relations director for the owner, operator Independent Drivers Association. The way it is right now, People who get cosmetology licenses have to have more on the job training to get their licenses than a truck driver. There are a lot of people getting their commercial driver's licenses every month. Every year. It's even increased by a great deal this past year. If all these people are getting licenses, what happens to them and they just getting their license and saying, Wow, this isn't for me there. Big pay is not good enough. The conditions aren't good enough. That's pretty much it. They get into it. They see the advertisements, the recruiting the promises and they get into it as someone that doesn't have a lot of background and trucking and they don't realize what it really is like until you're doing it. You can't know what it really is like to be away from home for weeks at a time until you really are out there doing it. And a lot of the newer jobs in long haul trucking require you to be away from home quite a bit. Especially that first year. Yeah, so maybe maybe a better gig for a kid who is looking for their first job. Maybe somebody who might otherwise have gone in the construction. Or or or look for a factory job or whatever. Maybe trucking is the way for those people to go. Yeah. You know, Trucking is for Pete. If there is a certain personality to for long haul trucking, you do need to be pretty independent. Um, there's a certain mindset and a lot of people know Pretty early in life that that is the kind of thing for them. What What makes me uncomfortable is when I talk to people all the time who get into trucking because they see the advertisements. They're actually middle aged, and maybe they've left another career for what for some reason or another, but they still have a lot of expenses. They may be there a caregiver for a pair of parent Or you know these other things going on, and they see the advertisements and then they get into it, and they either find out it's really hard job. And that's not very good job to have or even worse if they get drawn into what's called at least purchase agreement, which I know isn't like it's kind of a subtopic within this, but it's basically a rather predatory type of loan agreement that people can get into. Yeah, because I mean, you're not going to own your own truck. The beginning. They run 100,000 bucks. I'm guessing so you lease from somebody Right and and like I said, it's kind of a subtopic, but it's It's not the kind of thing for someone to get into. Especially if they're new and Truckee. Yeah, you definitely want to start out. As an employee so that you learn the business learn how to be in trucking. Most people do it that in that order, everyone So all I've met a few people who they knew they wanted to be in trucking. They knew they wanted to be a small business owner and they go ahead and they get alone a traditional loan, and they do quite well. But most of the time, the way to get into trucking as an employee driver are most Truckers, independent owner operators or at least you know these little least lesser operator. Sorry. I don't know the word. I don't know what the word for somebody who leases um or or or are you an employee for the most part? Well, most people are probably employees. But most trucking sleep are small businesses so most of the motor can be the most of the companies out there. That are for hire. Long haul companies are one truck to truck less than 10 trucks in the fleet. Okay, um How does the pay work? It's not narrowly right. It's per mile. Or is it is it per mile or per load or what? Mostly per mile. Um, some some instances may be a percentage of the load, but for the most part, it's by the mile and right there, behoove you to drive faster, Maybe sleep a little bit less right? Well. It definitely. Is a problem when you are regulating people by the hour, but you're paying them by the mile, right? Yeah, because I mean, you have to have a certain number of hours of sleep. I guess you could be, You know, off the road for a certain number of times. Wang Hao Structures for the most part do do just do you fit out your truck and sleep in it or are they spring from hotels? Oh, they mostly sleep in the truck. It's very rare to to stay in a hotel. And the cat. That's why that cabins that much bigger Yeah, right. Um, so if you're on your own, what are you doing for benefits? What are you doing for retirement? What are you doing for health care? Well, if you're lucky you work for a company that has those things. Um Companies are probably starting to offer that more and more but Things like bonuses. Those come with cat caveats You have to work there a certain amount of time and have some performance criteria. So there's definitely a lot to consider when choosing a company to work, for sure is the lack of attention for drivers. Is it good for the truckers? That Sticking around. Then maybe you have more experience. They're not going anywhere. Are they getting paid more? Just because they're they're rarer breed. No, no retention is bad for the lack of retention is bad for the industry overall, and it's not an advantage for truck drivers that stick with it. Um, pretend the The high turnover. The turn means that Newer people in experienced drivers are constantly being turned out on the road at lower wages. So basically, it's just keeping wages down for everyone, okay? Where do you suspect this might be going? I mean, Normally in a normal economy. Uh, if Labour is short wages go up, Um Could this shake itself out with higher pay or better conditions? At some point, the goods need to get where they're going, And at some point companies are going to say, Look, I'd rather pay more to get this stuff where I'm going to lose business or lose sales. Well, The problem is too many companies like any other publicly held company. They're making their decisions based on profit and not on people. And the last thing that stakeholders like here is that they're paying more wages. What they like to hear is that they're keeping labor costs down and productivity high. So the bee industry needs to change a lot of things. There's basically a lot of inefficiency in the supply chain. There's a lot of dysfunction. Um, in the way that everything works..

Good morning. Thanks for having me off. You bet. So Tom pumps in central Ohio Gas stations this past week and really the past few weeks are closed because of gas deliveries. They're delayed. It's not because of a shortage of fuel. It's because of a shortage of truck drivers. And this Friday morning. What's the status? What do we know? Well, I mean, I think we're going to start seeing that with more products just beyond gasoline. You know, there's probably about a 60,000. Driver shortage in the country right now, Um and that is only set to grow. Um, and one of the biggest challenges that we have is is that is going to impact the supply chain pretty significantly and the reason why fuel was hit so hard was During the pandemic. No one was driving, so no one is buying fuel. So obviously there was not enough work to keep those folks employed and they had to go through layoffs, and those folks found other Places to work. And so now I was just trying to play catch up when it comes to the workforce issue to get all the all the freight delivered today, president CEO of Ohio Truckers Association Tom Balzar is with us this morning on the legacy retirement group dot com Phone line. Tom, Can you take us through the process of someone listening going well, Haggai. I'm sure that job pays pretty decent and I know there's good incentives for the companies that are hiring What's the process of being a fuel truck driver? Well, you know the the the Requirements for being a fuel truck driver a little different than just a general freight driver. You're obviously dealing with flammable materials and hazardous materials, so there is a higher level that's that's involved there. And a little bit more experience. But, you know, I will tell you that from the From the trucking industry's perspective, um you're probably looking at six weeks of schooling 68 weeks of schooling. In order to get your CDL be brought onto a company. You're starting wage is going to be between 50 and 60,000. Your topping is north of the six figure salary because we play on productivity. We don't pay Based on anything other than that, And so a driver is in high demand. Um And can you know King gardeners pretty good starting salary and then the salary moving forward. And that's what we're seeing in the industries. We're seeing pay rates go up for drivers. We're seeing minimum weekly salary. So most most truck drivers are paid by the mile. But there are companies That offer a minimum pay every week. Regardless of if you have drive one mile or if you drive more, Um, so there's the companies are doing a lot of things with sign on bonuses, safety bonuses. And other things to really incentivize coming into the industry. You know, as you mentioned earlier, by the way, Tom bolsters with his president and CEO of Ohio Truckers Association, Tom It's always good to get your insight on this since you mentioned earlier. It's It's not just feel we're paying more for everything, and it's also affecting the lumber and goods industries. And it seems to me that this is not going to go away anytime soon. Not just with pain more. But also the shortage of drivers. Without question. This is something I've been. I've been representing the trucking industry for about 15 years. And this was a discussion 15 years ago, and I think when you take a look at You know the workforce with the baby boomers retiring and not a lot of backfill there, But I think all industries are suffering from a workforce shortage and trucking is one that has always been been challenged by that. Um, So, yes, you're going to see that work for a shortage. It's going to continue on the American Trucking Association says it will be north of 150 truck drivers, almost 200,000 truck drivers. 150,000 truck drivers to up to 200,000 truck drivers here in the next 10 years. Um, so, yeah, we are weird and significant crunch to be able to find an adequate workforce in this country and especially in the trucking industry. To be able to move these goods and with less Drivers out there. The less ability you have to move to freight, The more valuable that is, the higher the prices are going to go. And then that just gets passed on to the consumers, So, yeah, you know, we are in that.

"Driver shortage and, according to the American Trucking Association, our industry right now needs an additional 60,000 truck drivers. ASAP, and it's a deficit that's expected to grow by more than 160,000 by 2028. Why do you need so many drivers? Yes. Lots of stuff moves on trucks. And yes, there's pent up the man. We've been talking about that for months now. Why? Why is it so severe right now for your industry? Well with a lot of people may not realize is that 70% of the nation's freight is carried by commercial trucks, and they're carrying everything from dishwashers. Construction supplies. And, of course, all that stuff we like to buy on Amazon and Cove. It has shown Americans really the importance of the trucking profession. You know our drivers and dock workers. Worked around the clock through the pandemic to get essential goods to homes and businesses across the country during Cove it and we continue that pace today. I read somewhere that turnover among truck drivers in this economy is like 90% 1st balls. That right and second of all, what do you do about that? Well, the thing you have to realize in trucking is, you know, all drivers are not quick created equal, so to speak. You know, we're actually in the less than truckload side of the trucking business and what that means is Our drivers range from city drivers to medium range drivers. And then of course, we do have what they call long haul. But it really comes down to the lifestyle that comes along with this space and in our space. We don't experience that type of turnover. Right, Right. So less than less than truckload. Drivers can get home at night. If you're long hauling it, though, you're not gonna be able to do that, which certainly makes sense. But if I if I wanted to get into trucking today, let's say I'm an ambitious, you know, 25 year old I want to be out on the road. How much am I gonna make driving a truck? Industry average right now is about 55,000 year. But honestly, we have about 500 folks that made over $100,000 last year, which seems nifty. It's absolutely nifty and we're doing everything we can to really educate folks on. You know the opportunities that exist within trucking. Well, tell me a little bit about that right because, Askew said, there's a huge demand. We've got some turnover in the long haul space and And while making $100,000 is nice, it comes with a price being away from home. So so how else are you retaining drivers? I'll be honest, you know, drivers in the industry raging. Many have been with our company for 2030 even 40 years guy. So you know some retirement age drivers retired during covert, which is also affecting the shortage, and we're determining options to keep him on the job, at least part time if they're interested. So what happens if and you know there are something like 3.5 million truck drivers in this economy, I imagine both less than truckload and long. Also industrywide, about 3.5 million. What happens if Overtime. We want of not having enough people to drive trucks. Well, we're not gonna let that happen. But, you know, In the end of the day, we're doing everything we can to keep drivers and trucks and to start bringing new people into the business. I appreciate that. You say you're not gonna let that happen. But there's something that air out of your control even though you are the president of this company and And I do want to know what happened to consumers. If somehow we don't have enough truckers out there, right? Well, I think what you're going to see is increases in the cost of goods. If that were to occur, and so this is a serious issue. It's serious for our country, certainly serious for our industry, and it's one that we're focused on now, more than ever. Errol Harris. She's the president of Yellow Corporation. They do you as you heard less than Truckload Trucking, Mr Harris. Thanks for you time, sir. I appreciate that. Thank you, Kai. I appreciate it. You need your early morning business and economic news.

Of course, the trucking industry historically has been pretty regulated, and I'm wondering your thoughts on regulation these days. Too much too little. I doubt it's too much well, it depends on the issue. We're regulated by eight departments. Regulation isn't always bad, as long as it's clear and when it's not You pull in the lawyers and you get litigated. It becomes a just a nightmare. Red tape. Um, some regulations good. It's good to have clear rules. Everybody knows how to play by him. And if you can comply with him without, you know, a lot of cost and overhead. You know, becomes a pretty good system. But we've had our share of bad regulations. There's no question not only confusing and but also very expensive and so You know, primary, you know, departments like transportation or where we comply with safety regulations. So making certain our drivers arrested, um that they're all playing by the same play book? Um Is very, very important. But you know we comply with, you know, even the Department of Homeland Security, for instance, on credentialing for hazardous materials, and there's a whole host of regulations across the board and You gotta It's one of the things we have American drug associations for us to wade through all those things. When we have a bad one. We get engaged, but we work with those departments. We work with Capitol Hill before those regulations come out to make sure that the law is clear.

Now, the question I need to ask you is obviously our state Department is working on this with this ransom. Do we have any idea right now where this came from? Like, I guess they're working on it would be like overseas or as far as you know, Like, I hope we get to the bottom of the bride, of course, is the Mr Spirit indicated he is not an expert in this particular situation, As far as I know it originated with the group. Uh, what I think the dark force or something that is apparently based in Eastern Europe, possibly in Russia and outside of our jurisdiction at the very least, It could be state sponsored is our guest noted in For that matter, a two very least, the government in question is looking the other way. Wink. Wink nod nod, So that's not in particular Wyatt. Mr Spirits here. Although it you're welcome to comment further if you would like Chris Sure you know again. I'm not the particulars of this case, but I think you nailed it. Jim. That's clearly what I've been reading. I will just save Brody that in my past life I worked in government. I worked at D O D. And around a lot of folks that did this kind of work. And I can tell you a to Pentagon. When something like this was to happen from a defense point of view, they're not going to say much publicly, they know probably full. Well, who's behind this? They're probably not going to hear that right now. When the media Um, they're they're probably very busy putting together the parts and pieces that's going to take the nail These guys and I really hope they do. So I have a strong faith that we have. Killers within our government that are well equipped to handle this sort of thing. And I know for a fact they were working with Colonial. The minute this happened is this is obviously very impactful to enlarge section of the United States and many people. Were adversely impacted by the shortage. So you know, making certain that we hold people accountable for this. I guarantee our governments on top of this and you started thinking. How does the gasoline get from the pipeline to the gas station? Why? That would be trucks, I believe, would it not? Wood, and our tank industry is just outstanding and it's it's a It's a particular breed that do this kind of work. It's a little bit different credentialing because of the of the Technical matter that that goes into being ah, tank truck driver you are handling in many instances. Hazardous materials s O from petrol fuel the diesel fuel, but You're also hauling ah, lot of different chemicals as well that go into the things that become products. So you know, these drivers are particularly well trained. You have to be 26. To drive in this sector in most cases, so the training is a little bit more extensive than what you would find for other drivers on the pay is a little bit better, too. And After that, and we're obviously hopeful that you know, you look at all sectors. They're all you know, appealing in different ways. But if you want to be a tank car driver does pay more. And most of those drivers are our regional local. And they are home at nights of people that don't wanna be long haul and Them with their families or whatever reason that flexibility is there too, So it's a great sector to go into. I have to say.

Coronavirus Wreaks Havoc On The Global Shipping Industry

"San Francisco is of course home to a very busy port. The vessels that travel in and out of there being hit hard the corona virus is wreaking havoc on the entire global shipping industry. And this is all coming on. The back of a protracted trade war with China Amperes. Jackie Northam reports an bright blue crane clamps onto a shipping container sitting on a flatbed truck effortlessly picks it up sore sixty feet in the air and stacks it on top of five other containers. Toast the new crane-operator he's very slow. Visually it swam Bam Bam Bam Bam Bam Joe Harris a spokesman for the Port Virginia in Norfolk says the cranes are part of a new eight hundred million dollar expansion here. The third busiest port on the east coast. There's a lot of moving parts here so many pieces to it. There there are no incidental moves. Everything is planned. It's truly like a like a watch but the corona virus has upended the precision planning here and at other ports throughout the US and around the world the global supply chain was interrupted when Beijing imposed travel restrictions China Manufacturing slowed. The docks were quiet. Chinese exports ground to a halt as a result. Cargo ships are being idled in dozens of sailings have been cancelled says John Reinhardt. The CEO of the Port of Virginia. There've been over one hundred twenty ships that we're gonNA come to the United States. That have been blanked. So that means they're not sailing for the periods of late. February march and April. You could be talking anywhere from fifteen to thirty percent of the freight that normally flows in and out of this country will not be happening. This slowdown is affecting shipping. Companies Large and small worldwide Maersk. The world's biggest container ship operator warned its earnings would be lower basil. Karadzic's CEO of new york-based Crisis Marine advisers says. The past decade has not been good for shipowners. The demand has been growing at a slower rate than at dawn inch supply. So they're all the shipowners right now. Do not have much money to spare. Disruption is having a severe knock on effect for other parts of the shipping industry says Western Lebar. Ceo of the Harbour Trucking Association in Long Beach California. It's a bad time for everybody. There were three hundred teamster drivers that were laid off just last week because of the inability to have enough rate for them to move. We've seen employee. Drivers take a voluntary reduction hours for some of our companies as much as twenty five to fifty percent of ours well over half of Chinese exports to the US are unloaded in California and the Port of Los Angeles. Long Beach is the busiest complex in the country. Labar says one in every five jobs in Long Beach is directly or indirectly related to the port. Andy says businesses are down sixty to seventy percent since the beginning of February. But Lebar says there is a flicker of hope. The Corona virus is starting to ease up in China. We're hearing many of our customers. That manufacturing is starting to pick back up in China that the ports in China especially the main large port. Shanghai is now getting back to full operations and the hope is that in a week or two maybe we can start to dig ourselves out of this and get back to full operations but Labar says there is a challenge ahead to consider whether the corona virus spreading across the US will affect port operations here as it did in China.
