Since the deregulation of the port trucking industry in the 1980s many trucking companies have re-labeled employees as "independent contractors." The trucking companies now pass the cost of owning and maintaining trucks on to drivers and avoid paying payroll taxes, Social Security, Medicare, and workers' compensation because the drivers aren't classified as employees.
