He drove from Croatia to Russia hundreds of times (that's like i don't know 3000 miles), worked on all kinds of cranes, heavy machinery, drove all existing trucks. So, we had a little chat and i told him about this, and how dump truckers are making like 50$ per hour, and he went bonkers. But i guess he has no chance cause of his age and the fact he's not very good at english, despite the enormous expirience, right?

He picks up his English, reading and writing enough to communicate. He has a great opportunity. As long as he's healthy, can pass a physical, he will be welcome. I've met many folks who think "Oh, I'm over 50." and think they are out of work....NO! Trades need skilled and experienced people to work.
