A couple of weeks ago I got a 50% raise. Mind you 50% of nothing is not much but in this case it actually is something.
My route went over 30 hrs. so I am now intitle to health,dental,vision,life,disablity, insurance as well as 24 paid holidays,sick and personal days off. That is over a month of paid working days off in my 9 month work year.
Since I had no health ins. at my age this is really quite a big thing. Although I don't work in the summer the benifits are in force in the summer.
That along with getting an A.C. bus within a few week period was quite overwhelming for this semi retired guy. Dad
