One of the temps
at my current company
was recently put on reduced hours.
This is part of contracting life.
You cost the company money
with every hour you work
so they try to save money
by cutting your hours.
You have a couple of options
when faced with reduced hours, reduced pay.
You can find a new contract gig
and replace your employer.
Or better still,
you can use those reduced hours
to work on your own business.
I use mine to write.
However, I ALWAYS push back
so the reduced hours are in one chunk of time.
If they want me to move
from 40 hours to 35 hours,
I’ll maintain 8 hours a day
and put in a half day on Friday.
It is a more effective use of my time.
Reduced hours is not a bad thing,
especially if you plan
for the downtime.
