Maintaining a license is a requirement for driving your car, that doesn't make it a craft. I drove package for 18 years, been driving tractor trailers for the last 7. It's hands down the easiest job I've ever had in my life.
Shhhh- let's keep that under wraps please. Lol.

One of the responses I can think of is how many years of driving a tractor-trailer did it take you before you felt confident yet cautious and have the ability to do the job right and safely?

Ive been driving 20 years and still drive cautiously and carefully

Not at all. The discussion seems to be whether or not driving a truck is a craft. Most seem
to think it isn't. There, fixed it for you.

to disagree with you.
Nobody ever really said it was a craft in the truest sense of the word. I was giving an example of being bumped within my job by someone with another job simply because they have more seniority. USPS calls all bargaining jobs “crafts”. Tractor trailer operator is a craft, custodian is a craft, letter carrier is a craft etc. etc. They call your work shift a “tour” if you want to get riled up about that next.

I’ll try to talk only about my experiences with UPS from now on.
