If I’m working longer hours in a physical job, yes I’ll always prefer to take the unpaid 30. If the driver’s also offering to buy me lunch, even better.Mike cubed——were you OK with sitting there for 30-45 unpaid minutes while your driver had lunch?
My helper is there to work, not eat.
I was thinking of the days that end up being around 8 hours up to the occasional ten hours.What would you consider to be longer hours? 6? 8? 10?
I would think 6 or fewer would not require a lunch.
BTW, taking a lunch does not automatically mean more $$$ for the driver.
I fully appreciate how hard they work. I also appreciate the fact that, for the most part, they would rather get done earlier than sit for 45 minutes unpaid.I was thinking of the days that end up being around 8 hours up to the occasional ten hours.
I’ve worked in the restaurant industry where I didn’t even get 10’s during crazy busy 8 hour shifts. But I always appreciated jobs that were more regulated with them. I’m never the type of person to complain about it in real life but all I’m saying is that I appreciate the drivers who think about how hard their helper is working and decide to give them a full break.
