Connecticut sees shortage of snowplow drivers ahead of winter weather

We're weeks away from seeing snow and snowplows, but it could take longer this winter to get highways cleared.
The state is short 130 plow drivers this winter due to retirements and competition from shipping giants like Amazon. Private plow companies are squeezed too.
Connecticut's transportation commissioner says the job will get done.
"Will it be as quickly as it has been done in the past? I think a lot's going to depend on the type of storms we have," said Transportation Commissioner Joe Giulietti.
Many drivers are leaving the state for local towns - lured away with more money and bonuses.
In Massachusetts, some towns are offering $155 an hour for plow drivers. Connecticut's Highway Department is looking for approval to offer bonuses this winter.
