    'Morning Bret and everyone.. Got into a spat with the beancounters at work, so I took the day off, away from the computer to calm down a bit. Lost 8 hours of pay because I spent them dealing with some technical issues at work (as told by the bossman) instead of doing billable work. This is the 2nd time they're screwing with my pay and I can't say boo about it because I need good references when I leave this dump. Worst part is that I'm a contractor, so all the responsibilities and 0 rights. And they say we don't need unions any more.

    Well, comprehension of the 'whole' picture is hard when we only see a small part usually Moonrunner......
    The flip side is you can have an employee 'not give a $hit about checking his work' professionally and cost the 'boss' $60,000 and the customer.......whilst he says when he comes in on Monday..."oh sorry, $hit happens"...
    I've had that 20-30 times too.....
    If we all take ourselves out of our own and into the other......we'll collaborate for our common good MUCH better....and talking is sharing the load between many shoulders

    Doug, what happened here would be like telling your tech to wait in the shop while the truck is getting serviced, it will be serviced "any time now" and to keep checking in on it.. Then not paying him for the time he spent waiting for the truck in the shop, as per your instructions. Yes, the company has certain policies that cover that contingency (along the lines of "too bad, so sad, you ain't gettin' paid), but that doesn't really foster the spirit of collaborating for our common good with those who get screwed by the policy. Next time around, when you tell him the truck will get fixed "any time now" he'll just tell you "see ya tomorrow" regardless of how many clients are getting cooked or freezing to death, while waiting for him to come over and fix things.


    Edit: Let's take a look at this from the shop owner's perspective. You send a tech to service the RTU's on a highrise but the elevators are broken and they ask your tech to wait until they get fixed. Time spent waiting is half of the total time he was out on location but they only wanna pay you for the time he spent on the rooftop. How would you react to that?

    I've got one similar but in my perspective (after riding back to the employee's place to take the van to give him the long weekend off call) I realized why I have a $500 brake job to in again in 13 months and a $8000 transmission to buy or a $4-6000 rebuild. (Sprinter Van) That's a pi$$ pot full of service calls to 'pay' for his stupid driving techniques.
    I ALWAYS tell those who whine about the a$$hole bosses.......start your own company RIGHT AWAY and chomp on that grass......
    Yer boss might have been 'led on' too....
    FWIW ...???
