Spoiled yet jealous

September 15th, 2006 at 01:56 pm

Some days I feel really spoiled by having a salary position. I have a budget that is based on the same amount of money every paycheck and I don't have to worry about getting enough hours to cover all of my bills. Talking with friends and reading stuff online about people getting hours cut really makes me wish they find some way to make it up without too much trouble.

But then, I hear about all the overtime some people get and it makes me jealous. I have no option for overtime on salary. I do get extra money for being 'on call' certain nights the month before but it's not much ($35/night) and I usually only get about half of it after taxes are factored in so I never really budget for it. And something usually comes up to suck that money away.

I used to work for a place that had Hourly Salary positions. Which meant that you got paid twice a month the same amount, like a regular salaried position, but if you worked any overtime you actually got paid for it. I like the idea but don't know if anyone actually implements it.

    I get a paycheck I have the Hourly position with overtime pay. It is bi-weekly (every two weeks and not twice a month) so this way your basic salary is always the same. It makes it extremely nice for budgeting. I pay all my bills and go over all of my finance and tracking every time.

    Unfortunately my position is currently being re-evaluated and do not know what way itís going to go. So I do not know how much longer I can have this kind of pay.
