Can someone explain this to me? Hypothetical situation: One weeks dispatch and you have 2 flat 8 hour days and 3 at 8 hours and 20 minutes. At the end of the week you would have worked 1 hour of overtime, but the OR and your paycheck will only show .99 since 20 minutes is .33. Where does the .01 go? Isn't that 6 seconds? Does this mean it is better to work portions of overtime hours that are divisible by 5? Just curious- 6 seconds could add quickly among 400,000 employees. Maybe I think too much.

My dad is a tv repair man with a killer set of tools. Plus I'm a truck driver so just ask and I know what to do.

If you work 19 minutes it works out to .316 of an hour. If they round up to .32 then I guess you would be ahead in that case. Do they round it or just drop the extra decimal places?

payroll co.s and large corps worked out a way to screw the hourly wage working class. Right or wrong?

Did you ever wonder why you can only keep a helper 2.99 or 3.99 hours? What is the point of all these .99's?

Grunt, it goes deeper than just pay. IF you take 6 seconds, times 400,000 employees, then divide that by 60 seconds in a minute, then another 60 minutes in an hour, you end up with 666.67 and that number is rounded up. And we all know what the number 666 represents, dont we? d

go in tommorow and sit on the clock for an extra 5 minutes in the crapper that should even things out.

Obviously, 666 represents, as a sum, the number of letters in the Presidents name - Barack Hussein Obama. Draw your own conclusions.

i can solve this mathematical mystery,, i buy a 12 pack of beer,, i knock back 6,, its a weekday,, i down 2 more,, that puts me at 8 and hurtin the next day,, there ya go

When management questions hours of overallowed --right or wrong many take exception to that --I would not worry to much about six seconds --much more in life to be concerned about than overallowed or six seconds --chill !!
