steady ticket
 n.— «I land a job by taking the place of a man who works what is called “a steady ticket.” These are temporary jobs that are regularly offered through the agency. The fact that the “steady ticket” is in a graveyard did not bother me; in fact, it sounded very peaceful.» —“The Graveyard Shift” by Michael Oatman Free Times (Clevland, Ohip) Aug. 27, 2003.
