As I've stated before, we have seven open routes and another one opening up, the end of the month. Engineering has told management, "There will be no upgrades" and the two full-time positions, "Will now be part time routes!" Needless to say, with the new DOT rule (after driving an additional eight hours, you have to take a 1/2 hour break), the BABO drivers will no longer be able ... okay WANT to assist the operation. Who wants to work two hours, only to take a 30 minute break? My question: Does it make more sense to pay overtime out of the ying yang, than to upgrade a part timer to full time status? WTH am I missing with the math here?
