To do that you need to work the maximum time allowed during every work day. I come to work ready to work and I don't want my time to be wasted. If the company does not want to be my partner in that or the new rules prohibit that then my contract needs to protect me for a full days work.
I am away from my family to do a full days work and I expect to be compensated for that one way or another. I have no interest in sitting in BFE rj city all day for $1.80/hr. All I want is 8 hrs of pay for 8 hrs of work. If you cannot facilitate that for some reason that is not my concern.
