My boss schedules all us full-time hospital employees to work all the holidays. Won't mention the name for fear of further punishment. This means that we get time and a half or doubletime plus a day off with pay. Can't complain if you want the money, however there are casuals in our dept. that would appreciate the hours and there are even other full-time employees who actually want to work over thanksgiving or Christmas for the money. Alas we are not allowed to switch shifts. You would think a department head would rather pay a casual employee less than half the pay of a full timer then to put in a 'full timer' who will receive time and a half plus another day off with pay. This is clearly not my bosses concern however. This is your tax dollar being wasted. It would appear that our boss only cares about making our life miserable because she can. And another thing...all the years I have worked here she has never returned a phone call to any of us. We are lucky to get a response from any emails either. If we do get a response, it is weeks later. But I shouldn't complain, only be "grateful we have a job" and know that "our department doesn't revolve around our schedule". Life could be so much better if we could work together and have respect.
