    Stupid question, but just curious. I assume its a good thing. I didn't want to work today, but co workers told me to come because we get paid "time and a half", what is it exactly? >.<

    it means you only get paid half the hours you work because the other half is paying for the supervisor working. it sucks dont go in those days!

    Time and a half means that you will get paid your regular hourly wage but must forward half of your pay to the Union.

    you guys are mean, (no such thing as a dumb question, just dumb answers)

    You get paid your regular hrs plus half your regular hrs.

    You guys are cruel. It means take what you make per hour and multiply it by 1.5. So if you make $10 per hour, you multiply 10x1.5=$15. That's how much you make per hour at time and a half.

    Yah brown67 and cachsux got it right. Time and a half is overtime your regular hourly rate plus half of your regular hourly rate. So $8.50 an hr becomes $12.75 an hr.
