Made in Brooklyn

Erin has a shirt just like this, but it says Queens instead. I forgive her. She got hers from the Queens Museum of Art. This one I found in the window of Brooklyn Tattoo on Smith Street.

Things have been quite busy lately. But you already knew that. I only worked 7 hours overtime yesterday, so I'm going in .5 hours early at least for today and tomorrow to actually get paid for showing up yesterday. See, in order to get overtime, we need to do at least 8 hours in a week. Of course, as salaried folk, we should count ourselves lucky that we get any overtime pay at all.

Yesterday practice in NJ was nice. It's really convenient versus where I work, so if I'm gonna be stuck in Jersey anyways, I'm glad I can get some practice in.

I don't know much about the NJTransit system, aside from the very small slice I use. It annoys me that I cannot provide the same level of info as I know about the Subway, for instance.

How is it that you're salaried (i.e., "exempt from overtime pay"), but get paid overtime and have to clock hours?

Welcome to the oddness that is defense contracting. my understanding is that everyone in the industry has their own labyrinthine rules for getting OT pay, but that everyone has a way to get it, except at the executive level, of course. They just get massive bonuses, like any other industry.
