Sounds like a sweet gig being part of dat Teamsters.

 

If I got paid 1.5x for overtime, I'd work 80 hour weeks.

Same here, I'd bang them out for as much as I could.

That is nearly as uncommon as they make it sound. There was a house for sale a couple streets away recently, which hasn't been touch since the 50's. it was all original inside, it was for sale by the owners estate, who has owned it since 83.

It was pretty much a tear down for sale at a million and sold in less than 2 months, on a shitty street. Mind blown.


I put a bid in on a house last year, which had been without water and electrics since '11 (someone was still living in it), the sewage pipe had bursted and they had put up a milk carton to catch what fell out, it was date stamped may 2011. Someone the windows had een boarded up since the sixties etc. etc. It was a complete refurb into the studs and sitting in the middle of a very desirable area.

Been there, done that. With a family now I cant do that anymore. I would consistantly put in 75 hrs/wk but now I'm more 40-45. Pass up the 1.5 times to be home with the fam.

Overtime and on call aren't bad for a while but can get old. You go to work in the dark and come home in the dark, no time for much of life. I made over six figures last year with overtime. Not bad for a non supervisory employee without a degree. A lot of hours away from everything but work is the downside.

Reminds of the time I was brought in to do operational consulting on this one organization. Labour is always going to be the biggest chunk of any healthcare organization and they had run at about 120% of budget, meaning labour alone was putting them in the red, since opening a few years earlier. In healthcare there's something called the 8/80 rule that says OT is figured over two week pay periods, so if you work seven days straight in week one @ 8 hours a day (56 hours) then only 24 hours in week two, you get no OT as it hasn't gone over 80 hours. However, the "8" part is OT must be paid for any day over eight hours if you're using the two week, 80 hours to calculate OT. So if you work 16 hours, under the 8/80, eight of those hours would be OT if you worked no other hours in the pay period.

Okay, that was a long pre-amble to say this place was working under the 8/80 agreement and then scheduling all their staff for 12 hour shifts. So every day a person worked they automatically got 4 hours of OT. It was sort of sad how stupid the folks running the show were but damn did they think I was awesome for that little observation alone.

Yeah I can see that. It's easy to say I'd do 80 hour weeks but in practice I doubt I would.

Crunching the numbers tho, I'd be making close to 2.5x my base if I did 😮

Man, when I first started, junior staff got paid based on a 35 hour salary. Time and a half for anything after that.
I am fuzzy on the details, but I think sunday was double-time if you also billed time on saturday (even if you only did like 2 hours on saturday and 10 on sunday) and I think you also got double time after something like 12 hours in a day (or maybe it was 10, but that seems crazy).

Some of those provisions went away a few months after I started frown.gif. Turned into straight time from 35-40 hours a week, time and a half over 40, and no more doubletime ever.

I definitely wouldn't. I'm much too lazy to even contemplate it. Working a 40-hour week is pushing it for me.

Is there anything better than celebrities calling their exes out for liking fingers in their butt on Twitter?

But based on the little I know about what you guys do, I'm assuming you're not paid by the hour? That makes it kind of an apples-to-oranges thing.

Except for the military I have never not been paid by the hour . At one point for about 10 years in the 80s -90s all work over 8 a day/36 a week/ sat , sun and every other fri was double time

I am paid by the quantity of faith in the Lord that I exemplify in my acts throughout the workday. (Quantity is estimated by supervisor.)

Assuming a setup like what otc had when he was an Analyst where he was salaried up to a point and hourly thereafter.
