True story. I heard Sheila Jackson Lee say this in a press conference just hours ago. Eckels, White etc.. are encouraging people who work at gas stations/convenience stores to get back to work so gas can come in and Sheila takes the podium and says the "jobbers" need to return to work. I am NOT making this up.
She didn't mention if the people working on Mars should.
Jobbers are the independent fuel distributors. They even have trade groups. This was not derogatory rhetoric (this time).
Jobbers are the independent and privately owned oil sales and delivery companies.
