That's probably bottom dollar. Most factories pay time and a half weekends and you cover other jobs for vacations and make more on the hour then. Are you talking about the Owensboro converting facility?
yep

Not really for sure which one the paper was hiring for, my husband has guys tell him at Waupaca that Domtar pays 20$ and up, I'm guessing the Hawesville plant? He needs a new job the shit he's breathing in is going cause lung cancer or pulimonary fibrosis from the Silica dust floating around in there! Those little masks aren't stopping crap! But he makes 50+ a yr and has great medical, and he can't just up and walk out :( and all these people say go here or there and nobody is actually hiring that pays good!

Top pay at the Owrnsboro plant is $22 an hour. Over time is always available. They work the DuPont Swing. The plant is air conditioned and the work is easy. I also find it hard to believe that your husband can not use his own respirator. Especially if it is a better one than provided. Sounds like a law suit if this is true. Just saying. Peace.

$70 grand a year starting is possible at Hawesville if you want to live in the plant.

The dangers of working at Waupaca is the reason we make so much. You may not like the work we do but I'm sure you love the benefits of the paycheck over week. We're only working 60 hours a week and making bringing home almost 2k a week! Be happy and don't think about going anywhere.
