You know I don't care for unions, however I am beggining to see the point. Although allow me to say you consider your pay a annual rate of $50,000 a year for 185 days work. Most people work 270 days a year. Would it then be correct to assume you would work through the summer like the rest of the labor force 270 days for that $50000 or<quoted text>
I am a contracted employee. As per my contract I earn roughly $50,000 for 185 days of contracted work. No more, no less. I have the option of being paid over the summer......but I'm not paid FOR the summer. A bit of a distinction.
My prior statement was not meant to blur the facts.
And again.....I would love to work through the summer......the system we have today harkens back to an agrarian society, where farming families needed help bringing in their crops. Students would benefit from the increased instruction.
an additional $22,972 that is what the extra 85 days would pay at your rate. Then we are to assume you value a years pay at $72,972.
I wonder how many would agree with that?
That thing I said about starting to like the union idea may or may not stick according to your answer. I make a little more than that figure with a BS and some additional engineering certifications for 270+ days a year and work at home well into the night everynight, hence my posting in here at all hours.
