Hello all, I'm a new driver its my first year. I drove all last summer and through peak, now its very light and I'm on call, possibly until summer again. The driver above me is barely working and the 3 below me deffinetly aren't. So that being said I can go back to the preload/reload split shift and get my 40, just work one shift or collect unemployment. My questions are: 1. Do I get paid my driver rate for working the sort? 2. How much would my unempoyment pay be, and what would it be based on? My wife is a student with PM classes and my son is 9 months old and my mom can't watch him every night until 11pm when I get out. And finally: 3. Anybody been in this situation? What did you do or do you reccomend? BTW, Our centers preload is 4AM-8:30, then I'd work reload 5PM-10PM. Small center only 2 shifts.
