steady ticket
 n.— «At the beginning of this month, the plant went back to a five-day work week for its employees, while keeping production at a lower level. “My preference is to run consistently.…If that means running a steady ticket but a lower number of tires every day then, as a rule, that’s what I prefer to do.”» —“Demand lower in wake of attacks” by Jonna Lorenz Capital-Journal (Topeka, Kan.) Sept. 28, 2001.
