Night shift at hospital. Can confirm.
@Spork and Foon, you do get paid that one extra hour right?
@Alpha Warrior, having worked nights in printing the answer is yes, we got paid for that extra hour. At least for the “fall back” bit. The downside was that six months later on “spring forward” we lost that hour of pay.
@Alpha Warrior, yes, definitely. But shifts are 12.5 hours. You're so tired by the time you're off. It just wears on you being there for an extra hour. Especially if it's busy or your patients are being shjt-heads. Which happens more than you think. And that's not me complaining, it can get dicey. The threat of being attacked by patients is so real and happens all the time
@Alpha Warrior, I never got paid for the extra hour. Wages are based off of hours worked not off a clock.
@Spork and Foon, can confirm patients get dicey. From smearing their feces on the walls, to having to delouse hobos, to having combative patients that flail or actually try to punch old lady ER workers, to drunken idiots, etc. My mom and sister have to deal with that. My mom got hurt 2 years ago by having a patient attack her while she was one of 2 people on the floor. She's still fighting the hospital for workman's comp. And they fired her because she couldn't work.
@Spork and Foon can also confirm. Spicey patient load and spicey patients make for a bad night. Then add in an extra hour worked and you find some workplace violence
@Sir Borksalot , But if your shift ends at three and the time falls back at 2 then you stay an extra hour to be done at 3…meaning you worked an extra hour
One of the things I enjoy most after moving to Western Australia, no more daylight savings BS
I did that for 7 God dam year's.
