    You're guarenteed 8 hours. You can't simultaniously complain about overtime and opt out of the 9.5 list. That's just crazy talk.

    My god; get on the 9/5 list and then drive and walk slower. Not hard to figure out. Either that or don't get on the 9/5 and then just walk and drive slow, causing you to run out of hours everyday. Either way your day will become more reasonable.

    Currently make $36.80 x 2080 = $76,544. I also get paid 50 hours for my 8 weeks of vacation $36.80 x 80 = $2,944.

    So it is actually $79,488 without working a single minute of overtime with completely free health insurance for an entire family and about $509.50 each week contributed into your pension.

    SIGN ME UP! I will punch out at 5 p.m EVERY night!!!

    Ah, my favorite word. Dumpster fire. That's what the preload operation down where I'm at has become. After a while (I've been there 11 years going on 12 this September) the chaos becomes entertaining. I look forward to going to work every day just to see how bad it'll be, and if it'll top the worst day ever.

    When were the days not long? I was working til 830 2.5 yrs ago. I went on the 9.5 list. If you cant live off of 40 hrs, you are living wrong. You either want it or you dont. If you dont want it be on the 9.5 list and make them adhere. If you cant live off 40 hours suck it up while you can.

    I'm sure it's like that in most of the bigger buildings.

    10 new pre-loaders start on a Monday, and 9 more start on Tuesday....

    because only 1 came back. And by the end of the week, they have to start over.

    My building would be lucky to get 1 or 2 new preloaders for a week. Our preload management team is a real treat.

    So you work through your vacations? Also- if you get 50 hours for 8 weeks how is it $36.80 x 80? Just wondering...

    How many "new" pre-loaders can complete an entire shift ?

    Math is off but the point is valid, $76k+/year is a living wage in most places.

    How is my math off, Professor?

    The 80 hours comes from the extra 10 hrs a week for my 8 vacation weeks.
  15. Re-Raise

    Re-Raise Well-Known Member

    Ten extra hrs for each week on top of the 2080 hrs for the year

    In 710 we get paid 50 hrs at straight time for each vacation week. I get the maximum 8 weeks after 33 yrs

    Its gotta be a good feeling knowing that you can leave this place whenever you want.

    I'd leave now.

    My point to the OTHER guy was that being nitpicky about the math doesn't nullify your point.

    Now to be nitpicky: how do option weeks get calculated? I don't know each suppliments provisions for option weeks/vacation weeks but it's immaterial since regardless of suppliments all full scale drivers will make 76k+ @ 40 hours/week

    Optional week is one of the 8 weeks. It is also a 50 hour at straight time check in my supplement
