I could see an employer offering a $15/hr wage when they could find "someone" to do the job for $10/hr, if they found the right person. Someone who would be inclined to stay and grow with the company and who could be promoted into a managerial or supervisory role, or who could assume additional duties. Rather than someone who would take the job for $10 but who would also continually be looking for something better, somewhere else.

I have a Class A CDL. There is no way in hell I'd take a driving job for that low ass amount. The problem is companies know people are desperate for some kind of commercial driving experience and will take the job just to have some for money to roll in. In this economy, the companies have the advantage. Before things tanked, the advantage was with those who were already licensed and had enough experience to earn better than a decent wage.

10 an hour for a class a driver is ludicrous. i hope the company in question never finds anyone who accepts.

There are still good companies out there that reward the right person for the job. Even in this tough economy, good help is hard to find. If you had to hire someone and you received 100 resumes, 80 of which aren't impressive and two of the remaining twenty would be perfect, wouldn't you try to pay them more/ what they're worth to get them on board? I would.

I had a business in the nineties and paid my employees $15.00 per hour. They were satisfied as was I. You get what you pay for.
