    Anyone NOT getting holiday pay for working Labor Day. My slave drivers ordered me in for a 48 hr shift from 6am saturday till 6am monday and then a reverse 24 6pm Monday to 6pm Tuesday. All this for only 8 hrs of overtime, each week, because they split the 48 between 2 payweeks.

    Man we need a revolution around here, wheres my union drum at?

    Private ambulance life can really suck at times. I am just happy I am assigned to the "Vacation Station". 760 calls a year average.

    Oh well time to go to breakfast.

    The concept of getting paid for not working never made sense to me. Guess I wouldn't be good union material.:shocked: :supergrin:
