I heard the pay is $8.50 plus $.50 more for working 2nd shift. But like MyMy said, a job is a job and if you really want to work, it doesn't matter.

A paltry slave wage of $8.50 an hour in 2011 IS BARELY ABOVE MINIMUM WAGE!$16 an hour is what some employer from INDIA is going to pay to start in E-Town: FRANKFORT After a speedy trip to India, Gov. Steve Beshear said Wednesday that he has inked a deal with a New Delhi company that will build a $150 million factory in Elizabethtown that could employ up to 250 people within three years.

Beshear said Uflex Ltd., which manufactures flexible packaging materials, will receive state tax incentives, which the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority tentatively approved Wednesday morning.

Plans are to build the plant in two phases, the first of which could be operating by late next year, creating an initial 125 jobs that pay roughly $16 an hour, according to the plan submitted to the state.

No, it's not great pay but in this area not many jobs and people can't be picky. I'm happy for the people of E-town, but I DON'T live there. I'm not going to move there either. Pay is higher but so is cost of living.

Also should point out, most companies around here only start at min. wage no matter how much experience a person has. Which I think is crazy. Min wage should only be for young people just starting out with no work experience. So $9 an hour if you live close to Bruss is not bad at all considering. But if someone really doesn't want to work, they are not going to work even if the pay is $20 an hour.

I worked there before and it's a good job with benefits. All that is required is standng for long periods of time and lifting no more than 30 pounds. They produce car parts for ford,chrysler,volkswagon, and GM. You also may be required to work overtime.

$8.50 an hour is a joke. They could afford to pay a lot more. Each part thats made there sells for more than that and theres thousands made daily. I used to work there several years ago. The pay was around $8 then but gas wasnt $4 a gallon either. Russell Co in genereal needs to step into the 21st century and start paying descent wages to people.

I worked there before as a temp-there are different machines and presses-it wasn't too bad, but I didn't like the way some of the bosses treated people. It was like being in jail and being treated like crap. You would start working somewhere and then all of a sudden would get jerked off that to go to another line-noone ever 'talked' to you and explained anything. I assumed that moving me around was teaching different lines. I had never worked in a factory before either, so that was probably my problem.

I thought it was funny you couldn't talk to other people. At what they are paying there lucky people even show up. Pay people a fair wage and they will give you good work and have a good attitude.

Some people wouldn't have a good attitude if one came along and slapped them upside the head. What exactly do you consider a fair wage? I agree they should pay more but some think they deserve $25 an hour. That is crazy. It's just an excuse for those who don't want to do anything.
