The machine that places the piece of plastic between the glass and the lid was not working correctly last night and both of us had to stop production a bunch of times to reset the machine
My task is in a warehome more than four afternoons every week. My shift starts at 3:00 in the day and I don’t get to my little apartment until almost midnight. I get several 15 minute breaks throughout the night and an hour for dinner which is fully paid. Which means that every week I get 5 hours of overtime pay. I use our 5 hours of overtime pay as a savings account. I make $117 for those 5 hours of overtime pay and every week I put that into our savings account for christmas. Last night was a legit busy night because there were a ton of troubles in the packaging warehouse. We were packing grams of cannabis concentrate. The cannabis concentrate comes in a big vat. Each one of the small glass containers are filled with a small amount of cannabis concentrate. Another unit adds a plastic lid to the top of the glass. There is also a small insert between the lid and the glass so the package is completely sealed from the factory. The machine that places the piece of plastic between the glass and the lid was not working correctly last night and both of us had to stop production a bunch of times to reset the machine. Before 5 o’clock, I had already reset the machines three times. I told the repair staff that they were going to have to repair the problem when both of us took our dinner break, because the cannabis concentrate packing problem was slowing down production a lot. We took our dinner an hour early and hoped that the machine would be fixed when both of us came back.
