No one was willing to work the overtime initially, so this was when they got desperate and offered a triple pay scale to work the weekend
I am not one who will ever work overtime at a job. Unless of course there is a good cash incentive to do so other than the usual overtime legal pay laws. This past weekend I ended up working all weekend at my job because I was offered triple pay! For that kind of money, I will work 24/7 until I drop! Oh and I forgot to mention, I am a certified heating and air conditioning specialist who works for the local heating and cooling company. They had a very large overflow of work and usually they are not even open on the weekends other than for emergency HVAC home services, but this weekend was different. There were a lot of heating and air conditioning system installations that came out of nowhere that needed to be done on a weekend and they needed the extra help. No one was willing to work the overtime initially, so this was when they got desperate and offered a triple pay scale to work the weekend. That got me and almost every single other heating and cooling worker at the local heating and air conditioning company on board and there to work the overtime. I must say it was very tiring working both Saturday and Sunday having no weekend. However, it was well worth the headache because by getting triple pay it was like working a whole additional week on the paycheck! That money came in handy in saving towards the family vacation this coming summer.
