No documentation, just first hand experience dealing with the clerks in the SF bay area. They had to get by doing whatever work they could find until they were middle aged and their dad's retired so they could have that job. I talked to a new gal in her 20's and made the mistake of asking how she got her job, the reply "my dad passed last month". In the ports this is a time honored tradition, from the days that working the ports was a back breaking job, but still very good paying, to today with containerized freight.

This might be of interest to you...
