    Here's how I think it works:

    We're paid at top driver rate. We also get the driver rate for the time we've worked at the hub that day. Overtime starts at 8 hours. So if I did 4 hours at the hub, overtime starts after 4 hours on the road.

    Is that right?

    Yea, we get top rate when it's off-peak. I went through my paycheck and what I wrote in the OP is correct.

    NorCal supplement non peak helpers are to get top rate for driver helpers. Helpers do not need any certain amount of time off between shifts like pt cover drivers need 10hrs. Inside helpers from nov 1 to jan 31 to be paid 15.20 this year and in 2015. Off street helpers to be paid at 8.75 with ot kicking in at 5hours. 50% of helpers need to come from part timers during peak non peak all helpers need to come from part timers.

    That's correct top driver pay..it's most likely cuz they short drivers and are putting hurt weight restricted drivers on truck with route knowledge to drive while the helper does all the physical lifting

    I used to be a driver helper for sups running a route and made top driver pay. Sort of a penalty for supervisors working. And the sup would buy lunch also.
