Yes they do. More bad news for your friend: hauling gas demands hazmat (hazardous material) certification, which demands specialized schooling. In fact, more and more truckers are going for college degrees in their field. Your friend wants to work on a garbage truck, he can't even be the driver without at least a GED Of course, if he does not mind being the poor slob who has to pick up the garbage, then he can continue, for now, to be a lazy jerk and not get that GED. Even that won't last though - more and more legislatures are talking about forcing even garbage collectors to earn their hazmat certification. Hey, it's a rough world out there. You don't do your friend any favors by helping him stay illiterate.
