That sucks, being short on staff.

Not experienced it much myself beyond sometimes covering for other teachers at karate from time to time, and I didn't mind it as it tended to be when I would go to karate anyway. Plus, extra money.

being short on people hurts my job a lot. heck, being short even one person yesterday was enough to frustrate my boss quite a bit, because since everyone else was busy with their workload, she had to have my other boss catch up on the work that said person wasn't here to do.

My mom's work has people pulling overtime bc they don't have enough people.
However, here in Canada, they have to pay you double for each hour over 8 hours.

In the US there isn't necessarily a daily requirement before overtime kicks in, but it kicks in for certain after the 40th hour of a person's work week

My dad had a job where he got paid overtime once he passed 8 hours in a work day.

Sounds amazing.

My dad had the option to do this at his job before he retired, the pay was phenomenal.

      lol back when I used to work for a full-service restaurant, despite being "part-time", I was working full-time hours. It was not uncommon to work 35ish hrs/week.

      So I kinda figured that was just a normal thing. Apparently not. :<

      ^ what tara said

      i mean you have job experience now. at the very least you should put that on a resume and start sending out applications. even part-time work would do you much better than what you have now.
