I thought that I had experienced it all in 13 years of subbing, but I was wrong. I would never have guessed that someday I would be offered a job that pays nothing. Yet, this is what happened on Tuesday, and I was a sucker to accept it. The subfinder called me early Tuesday morning to offer me a job that went from 8:00 to 11.55. I was not sure whether this was considered a full day, but I took it thinking that it was, and later confirmed I was right. Fifteen minutes later , I was again called by the same district. This time, I was offered a job at the same school with a different job number that went from 12:00 to 2.45. This offer led me to believe that maybe the morning assignment was only a half a day after all, so I accepted this job as well. At the end of the day, I called our substitute techinician to see if I was going to get credit for an extra half a day. She said this situation had never come up before, so she would check it out and get back to me. Well, it will probably surprise no one that she informed me I only get credit for one day's pay. She told me that I should not have accepted the second assignment. Although I did not technically get cheated, I ended up working almost three extra hours for no additional pay. Why is that darn subfinder offering me this second job if it payed nothing? This is just further evidence that districts care nothing about us, and would rather breach moral principles than fork out a few more good faith dollars. I am not even convinced that what they did is legal since the job had a seperate I. D. number. My job is too valuable to make waves. If I complain, I will merely be punished with no work. However, I find that this is strong evidence of how little subs are respected by some districts.
