PennDOT’s Plea for Plow Drivers, Mechanics
LACKAWANNA COUNTY, Pa. -- PennDOT officials said there is a serious shortage of seasonal workers: they need snowplow drivers and diesel mechanics and they need them now. A.J. Wormuth of Jermyn is a PennDOT plow driver in Lackawanna County. He said, "We've got guys that are working, 15, 16-hour shifts, going home for a few hours and then coming back. We don't have enough guys, it's all just craziness you know."
