Work 8 Hrs – Get paid for 20 Hours

Where can  you possibly get paid for 20 hours and only work 8? Become a Wisconsin Correctional Officer.

The Union contract allows correction officers sick time. Sounds fair so far. They work 8 hour shifts. Also sounds fair. 

The problem occurs in the following situation. You are on the 1st shift, say 8AM to 4PM, and call in sick, so you get 8 hours paid sick leave. You could then volunteer to cover an absence on the next shift, 4Pm to midnight.  For that shift the Union Contract calls for you to be paid time and a half or to be paid for 12 hours. So for one 8 hour day actually worked, you will receive 20 hours pay. (sick time and time and 1/2) 

Time to re – think contracts!!!!! Again, I am not anti – Union,  just anti – Union excesses.

2012 is coming!!!!
