x days

  1. 0
    I'm a new GN in AB, Canada. I keep hearing people talking about picking up shifts on their "x days". Does anyone know what this means?

    Days in which it is not their regular shift??

    Just a guess

    "X days" is slang for "designated day off". Everyone has a minimum number of days in their rotation that are designated as days off, meaning that being asked to (or told to) work on those days will attract a penalty (they have to pay double time) from the employer. Picking up shifts on "X days" is a popular way of expanding one's income without formally increasing one's full time equivalent.

    Most Provinces do not pay double time on "x" days, so if you're working in AB, consider yourself very fortunate. The extra pay is a nice bonus. I'd still rather have my sanity intact though.
