companies that pay OT are awesome
Happy New Year!
Yesterday was Bill's first payday, and it was an excellent way to finish off the year. It was so much more than we'd expected, just because this new company pays for every minute that he works overtime. At his last position (for Evergreen Tank Rentals) he was never paid for this. In fact, even though they owed him for 200 hours of unpaid overtime, they took away his ability to text me when he downloaded a $6 game for his phone (and told them about it. He'd been stuck on a oilrig lease in the middle of nowhere for over seven hours.)
Anyway, as long as this new company keeps it up, we should be in the black in no time. I'm not sure what college classes I'll be taking yet (or when) so I'm not sure where my income will be, but I hope I can drop down to working two or three days a week.
I'm working today, from 12-6:30. That's time and a half for me, and I hope the shift goes by quickly.
Have a good day!
