No wonder my telephone bills are so high. It is bedtime for Tippy and herself, and to all, a good night.

if these employees are salary workers, then HOURLY wages are not part of their compensation. if they work 1 hour or 100 hours per week they recieve the same salary. so overtime pay is not a factor. in my opinion......

tell me the facts i'm missing? seems to me that it is ANOTHER union issue, where people who make salaries want overtime now. more entitlements. granted they work many hours and i'm sure the work is difficult at times, but everyone knew what they were getting into when they accepted their job.
has the article mis-lead us readers? are you one of the people affected by this action?

Tell me when this thread is updated:
