Finally something good happens....

Had a meeting with my boss the other day...it seems that she thinks we are under paid and underappreciated for all the work we do in our department. (We only staff the entire hospital on a 24 hour basis-24/7.)
So she has been working behind the scenes for that past little while trying to get our jobs re-classified. It 's finally come through and the powers that be have agreed that what we do is definitely worth at least one classification higher, maybe more.....
That means a minimum of $1/hr raise (plus the shift premium I get for working nights, plus the weekend premium I get for working weekends).
This also involves backpay. Don't know how far back but it sounds like at least six months.

Ahhhh, it's nice to be appreciated....

Chickie

Whoa! Major windfall. It's Canadian party time at Chickies house. I'm still cleaning up the mess you guys made here while I was gone. I still have that bat looking thing from one of the Carolina's hanging from my chandalier.

Yay. Hard work = payoff. Now if only I can get that equation to apply to me. . . . . . .

Way to go Chickie. Give yourself a pat on the back. Or just bend over and Chuck will do it for you.

Wait, did I say 'pat'. I meant . . . nevermind.

Just rub it in Dave....just rub it in....it's friggin' cold here today....
Got an update just today.....apparently our back pay is going to be retroactive to Nov 2003 and should be out to us before Mar 31st. We are being bumped up one pay grade. For me that's about .85/hr.
Like I said, it's nice to be appreciated.....

Chickie.
Oh and Dan, I'll have that Sundae over to you sometime in April....

Hey Larry, you mean you guys don't get that now? I get a shift differential for any shift I work outside of days (which I NEVER work). This weekend for instance, I get my night premium and my weekend premium, so added to my base wage add another $3.10/hour. Not bad money for staying up all night answering phone calls from sick people....

Chickie.

Hey Chickie,

Glad to hear you got the raise. Don't worry about the weather. Your three weeks of summer will arrive soon.

Since you don't have any plans for all that loot, . . . . . . . can I borrow $50 bucks?

I think I remember saying something about buying a treat for the family....just decided what Chuck's gonna get.....insulation for the garage attic....(ha, ha, made you look ).

Kitkar, I already have to send dinger a hot fudge sundae, how about some DQ in leiu of your $50. I don't write cheques and you know it's not safe to send cash through the mail.

Larry, it's nice to hear that the old folks home's in your neck of the woods pay a fair wage, up here a lot of them pay slave wages (at least to the support staff) unless you're unionized. Of course the RN's and RPN's are well compensated no matter where they work.

Chickie.
