100 years of service

Written By: Gary Wonning

As I made the slow drive to Osgood, my mind began to question if what I was doing was sane. I had a comfortable job at Cummins Engine Company in nearby Columbus Indiana. This could have been a lifetime opportunity at a well-established company,  everyone worked inside, the temperature was always a comfortable seventy-two degrees and even though there were occasion layoffs, once one acquired a few years of seniority, there was job security for life.

I was dissatisfied and no longer wanted to work inside, there was just too much of a world to be seen, I didn’t want to be cooped up in a windowless building all day.

Working the graveyard shift, I couldn’t envision doing that all my life, and I couldn’t see myself working in a factory long term on day shift. I had determined the thing I liked most about my job at Cummins was driving back and forth to work, so it only made sense to make my living driving.
