    Not too many people living in ME have the funds to be internet shopping all day like some people on the W. coast have.

    All I know is it's the end of the month and I got 9.5 hrs on a 4X10 when not long ago this time of the month I easily got 10.5+. All in my loop were in early. Had an 8.5 hr day last week. Pretty hard to make a living on a 4X10 these days. Will need several raises just to make up what we have lost in hours this year.

    Cactus Just telling it like it is

    You're obviously not taking enough work out with you. And don't tell me everyone else was back in early too.

    Here at ups I was lighter than normal as well. 210 stops, 320 pieces, but I did make it work for an 11 hr paid day+ my bonus that I will know tomorrow. ;)

    Ground will be awash in volume soon enough. However, I don't get someone who is paid by the hour bragging they were off at 1 pm. This sounds like the old Express trick where the manager tells you how many hours you have on Friday morning so they can bring you in early and avoid paying OT. My favorite is when my manager does this, and then I end up getting 12 hrs that day because someone broke-down, got sick, or something else went wrong.
     
  14. Negative, I'm paid a flat rate .. rarely ever work more then 10 hours a day, but the days I work 7 or 8 hours I make easily as much as many Express couriers ..

    That is the way contractors pay around here also. Flat weekly rate.

    In Californian there is no such thing as daily flat rate if you are scheduled a regular five day a week job. You are actually considered salary. So if you are a sick a day you are legally still entitled your weekly salary. Most ground drivers are unaware of this and that's just the way the BbScams buddies like it.

    How about the days you work 12 hours? Flat rate is a huge scam.

    That's why most contractors offer a piece rate OR daily/weekly rate. The piece rate is low enough to be higher than minimum wage. But the daily/weekly is always higher. Not a scam, just a loophole.

    that's why i negotiate with BOTH a flat rate & pay-per-stop... recently i walked in w/ a 60 stop load & was kinda :censored2: due to the commute & baby-sitter fees

    so now i am going to tell him it's going to be a minimum set rate of $120 per day and anything after 80 stops will be additional rate of $1.60
