I could not work 5 graveyards every week. I prefer working the 3 -12's one week then 4 the next.
Company would like to put us on 4 on 4 off all the time. We get time and a quarter on Saturday and time and a half on Sunday. We are a union shop and I'm not sure if it is a contractual issue or not. I would rather stay on what we are on now, but it isn't a big deal as long as they don't want to make weekends straight time.
I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.
