    we should be paid for the time spent walking from the parking lot to the time clock, come on this isnt right, we are on company property we should be paid for this time

    same with after we clock out we should be payed to walk to our cars, i want this 30 seconds of pay and i will fight tooth and nail to get it

    also we should be on the clock for our drive to work and from work and reimbursed for gas at double the average price

    TEAMSTER PRIDE

    While you are at it, make sure you get paid for time that your manager commuted to and from work.

    Well then, I think we should get paid for the time it takes to put on the uniform, shave, my monthly shower, etc

    What a pleasure it must be to have Ctiy Driver as a co-worker. Cant stand people who constantly complain about everything. Rebel without a cause.

    Most nights I sleep in my browns on the sofa. In the morning, I do change my underwear, brush my teeth and towel wash my armpits with soap and water. My beer belly allows for water to drip from my abdomen, saving my browns. The last thing I do is put a good shine on my shoes.

    When we get paid for using the bathroom are we pushing for being paid bathroom time as a whole or by the wipe?

    It takes over 5 minutes each way at our hub. Over the course of a year that is over 1000 m inutes. That's about 16 plus hrs of OT

    about $700 a year.

    35 years ......that;s about $25,000.00

    if you put that money every year in an S&P mutual fund for your IRA , that money would be worth well over $150,000.00


    that ain't chump change.
