Well I've been a Shortline driver terminal 881 Salt Lake City Utah for 10 months this week - and there are actually two different levels of effort that I see. The guys that have been there 10 20 30 years work at a very slow and steady pace - do the absolute bare minimum - and don't exhibit much hustle - and no sense of urgency. The newer drivers those who have been there a year or two or maybe three - Hustle - and for the most part do whatever they can do to get it done. But that's just because they came with Hustle from their previous job - and believe it's the way to do things. But the generational older Teamsters guys who've been there for decades - figured out how to work slow and easy and keep their job, of course protected by the Teamsters Union.
