If you're doing two jobs, then you're doing each of them in half the normal time. Per B346, that's a -5 penalty for 50% haste. Three jobs would be 70% haste, so -7.
Color me skeptical.

GURPS 3e rules were what GURPS TRAVELLER was designed for - not 4e. In addition, GURPS TRAVELLER: STARSHIPS specifically include RVO as a means for having a bridge crew operate short handed.
