    8 hrs. even.
    Many do not realize that this day like any other is subject to the contractual language regarding our 8 hr. guarantee.
    At least this is the case in my region.
    Spent much of the day posting on the Brown Cafe with my new smart phone, waiting for them to find something for me to do.
    At double time for hours worked, why would anybody leave that gravy train without getting their 8.

    I went in and worked six hours today, it was easy. I haven't done it in about nine or ten years, a chance at four days off is hard to pass up. I ran my area and the one next to mine. EDD made it a breeze to run the parts of the other route I didn't know so well.

    i worked just under 12 hrs today

    I've come to a point in my career where a 4 day weekend with the family is more important to me than working, no matter how much it calculates too.
  8. I have come to a point in my career where money pays for the family.

    Opportunities for extra bucks must be seized. Easiest day of the year.

    BUT. to each your own.

    Happy Thanksgiving

    me too. Plus this was the first time I ever had enough seniority to actually get the day off.

    People see this day as a way to make some extra money. Usually the 9.5er's and the guys taking days off all the time are the ones that volunteer. There is extra money to be made each day. It's called overtime. I'll take the paid holiday.

    This year, most of the volunteers in my center were the drivers who had their routes cut out on any given Monday or Thursday.....Come to think of it, None of the low seniority drivers had to work other than the air and cover(the borrowed from part time as needed)drivers
