    I believe I read somewhere in the contract that the wage for driver helpers is 80% of the starting wage for full time drivers. In this case it would be $12.88. I can't remember if I read it in the master or my local rider. I did driver helper last year and the rate was $12.88. My question is since the new rate once this contract goes into effect for drivers starting progression is $18.75 would that bump driver helpers pay rate to $15 since $15 is 80% of $18.75?

    We should go on strike so that our driver helpers get top package care rate.

    You're more likely to win the lotto than get an accurate answer on this forum. Then you wouldn't have to worry about helper pay.

    You won't have to worry this peak. The new contract won't go into effect until Christmas 2014.

    are you a PTer or just a seasonal helper? I know under my local supplement....PTer helper pay for peak is 19.13/hr (ot)....12.75 straight time but you go out as a helper after preload, you're already on ot. But the seasonal helpers are paid $8/hr.

    Wages for the hard work like that are part of the reason why people are not incented to get off unemployment.

    I'm part time, been with the company for 6 years and some change as a loader on the Twilight shift. I did help last year and got the $12.88. I am kind of reluctant to do it again this year because I already make well over $12.88 inside the hub and they like to bounce the helpers around here, (drive 30 miles away just to work for 1-2 hours). Was just wondering if there was any language in the next contract that I might have missed. Thanks to all that gave a serious answer.

    We've got Amazon hiring in Texas - I've heard their starting wages are $12+/hr. Going to explore that urban myth and will get back on that...
