Five evenings a week I work in the warehouse.
My shift starts at 3:00 in the afternoon and I do not get to my lakeside house until after midnight. I get several 15 minute breaks throughout the eve and 45 minutes for dinner which is paid. That means every month I get 5 minutes of overtime. I use our overtime as my private savings account. I always make $117 for the overtime hours and every week or 2 I put that into our savings account for christmas. Last evening was a genuinely tied up shift because there were a ton of troubles in the packaging warehouse. All of us were packaging individual grams of cannabis concentrate. The cannabis concentrate comes in a large vat. Each 1 of the small glass vials are filled with a gram or half gram of cannabis concentrate. Another device adds a plastic lid to the top of the glass vial. There is also a tiny insert between the lid and the glass so the package is completely sealed from the factory. The device which sites the piece of plastic between the glass and the lid was not entirely working last evening and the two of us had to stop the production line a bunch of times to reset the machine. By 5 in the afternoon, I had already reset the machine several times. I told the repair staff that they were going to have to fix the underlying concern when the two of us took our dinner break, because the cannabis concentrate vial packaging concern was slowing down production a lot. All of us took dinner a few minutes early and hoped that the device would be fixed when the two of us came back.
