Kevin Zorzo, 48.
Portrait of 48 year old truck driver Kevin Zorzo. "I’ve been doing interstate for just on two years now, but must be last 20 odd years (truck driving). Best part of 30 years, almost. Sort of been doing local. We might do a couple of weeks Sydney-Brisbane then swap around and do Brisbane-Melbourne, and then throw in one across here every few months. It’s different, I enjoy it really. I used to sort of travel away with a few of my mates and that, when the kids were little, we always had an agreement, me and the wife, that I wouldn’t do interstate until the kids were all grown up. Two boys, 25 and 23. It’s a hard life being away, especially with little ones. I’ve got one up at Bundaberg, and my youngest one’s still at home. He (oldest son)used to come away when he was little and that. I used to work a lot of weekends, running into Sydney out of Lismore, so he used to come away. I’d like to get my wife to come over, but see she works as well, so it’s a bit hard. We’ll organize it one day, got plenty of time. Unless I bloody win Lotto or something like that. But the job’s good, especially with Taut-liner work, you’re not pushed or anything, you’re not on time slots or anything like that. I brought horse feed across, out of Sydney. Whatever goes basically. I’ll load beer back out tomorrow to Brisbane. So horse feed across and beer back. The horse feed didn’t smell that bad. It’s a nice place, I don’t mind coming across here. Just relaxing, I find it more relaxing coming across here. Sydney to Brisbane, it’s just monotonous, too many cowboys out there, they’re all in a big hurry. I just like to cruise along. I’m on a kilometer rate. Problem there (with load percentage paid hauling) is the blokes that own the trucks tend to not tell you exactly what they’re being paid. I remember first time I came to Adelaide last Christmas, I was only pulling a single then, I got here on the Saturday evening, spent the Sunday here, got talking to a few blokes, and there was a guy coming out of Victoria, he spent a week in Perth, waiting for a load, and then he was, he said he was basically getting shafted, because the boss wasn’t telling him exactly what he was making. He pulls a load, and he was on 20% whatever they are. It’s only the major players that get the big benefits out of it (diesel), because they’re getting so much in bulk. Diesel’s only a by-product, and it’s the dearest going at the moment, compared to unleaded petrol, it’s dearer than petrol, you know, what a joke. As soon as there’s a shortage, the price goes up. As soon as there’s a glut of it, you don’t see that price coming down. Like interest rates, you know, with the banks, as soon as they say ‘Yep, there’s an interest rate’ they’ve got it up next day, but as soon as they say ‘Oh, she’s coming down half a percent’, you don’t see it for two or three months. Everybody says the economy’s looking good, but it’s like….you’ve got a lot of farmers at the moment that are struggling out there, with the drought. I noticed coming across today, it looks they’ve had a bit of rain, a little green. Last time I was across here, I came down through Broken Hill and that, and I mean JC, back of Bourke there, it’s just nothin’. They got some good storms when I came through, heading back really, so hopefully it’ll sort of green up a bit. Just about every capital city along the eastern seaboard, like Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, they’re all on water shortages, they’re running scarce of the stuff. But that all comes down to mismanagement. The population’s growing too…it’s like where I’m from, they built the dam there in the early 50s, somewhere round there, and it was built for the population of Lismore by the time it got to 40 000. But in their wisdom they’ve decided ‘Hang on, we’ll pipe it over to the coast, we’ll flog it off to all the towns along the coast.’ But then they’ve started to grow, because everybody’s coming out of the city, and moving to the coast, they all want to be close to the water. So the population’s grown, but the dam hasn’t grown. It’s all infrastructure, same as Sydney. Sydney’s growing, but they haven’t bothered putting another dam in. They should have dams everywhere. And now they’re paying the price for it. Sooner or later they’ll wake up. Who knows, we can only hope. At the end of the day they’re all there to feather their own nest. Like everything, it’s the people that have got the money who are the first ones to clamp up. The likes of us, the work class, we’ve still gotta eat and pay bills. But the ones that have got the big money, as soon as something goes on, they just place the fist in the back pocket and tighten up. One thing I’ve noticed out on the road, the food’s lousy. Sorta succumbed to it, I sorta pick and choose what I eat. A lot of places, you might as well take your pet dog along. I reckon he’d even turn his nose up at it. I heard a bloke talking this morning, and he says ‘The steak I got last night, you could alm
This is a picture of Brisbane, Australia taken from the top of Mt. Coot-tha. It was taken by Zach Greene on February 26, 2007. It could be used to address the second grade objectives: 4.02 Analyze environmental issues, past and present, and determine their impact on different cultures. 4.03 Describe human movement in the establishment of settlement patterns such as rural, urban, and suburban. 5.04 Identify the absolute and relative location of communities. 6.03 Identify means and methods of human movement as they relate to the physical environment. Application: The teacher can use this photo to compare the city with the beautiful beaches of Australia. Students can divide in to two groups and create a "Day in the Life" of someone from the city and someone from one of the coastal town. Teachers can also discuss with students some of America's most populated cities and the pollution problems which accompany the population concentration. The teacher can discuss Brisbane's top-notch transit system and its efforts to reduce impact on the environment. Students can point out Brisbane on the map and name some of the geographic features which surround it.
