"Put (one's) shoulder to the wheel" = Gồng gánh bánh xe/để vai cầm tay lái -> gắng sức thực hiện nhiệm vụ.

Ví dụ
"I'm at work right now," said Marian Milton of Paterson, who could be found Sunday afternoon at one of the long tables at the Police Athletic League in Wayne, ready to put her shoulder to the wheel.

Indeed, a broker (người môi giới) really has to put his shoulder to the wheel of malfeasance (hành động phi pháp, bất lương) to get a state insurance commissioner to sit up, take notice and say, “Wait just a minute. This guy might not be on the up-and-up. Better take a look!”

“I wanted to do my part,” the congressman (nghị sĩ) told ESSENCE. “Right now, Congresswomen Kelly, Underwood and Adams are all doing yeoman’s work (nhiệm vụ của hạ sĩ quan) in this area. And so, I wanted to put my shoulder to the wheel with them, to try to elevate this issue.”
