    What do you pay your drivers with your trucks? How about $34.68 an hour, no shovelling? That is what the state of NJ DOT offered to other non-DOT existing state employees who volunteer to participate in storm clean up just to drive salt trucks this winter. A thousand state employees volunteered last year and the state signed up over 700. CDL required but they will train you if you don't have one at the DOT's expense.

    If that is not good enough for you, they will pay a bit more, $36.97 an hour, for you to be a contractor snow representative whose job it is to monitor the activities of private hired snow contractors. You get reimbursed for mileage too because you have to use your own vehicle. No CDL is required.

    Not a bad deal if you get chosen.
