As productive as he or whe wishes to be, which oftentimes isn't very. That is unless the said worker is limited in time available to function, as by death or being physically or mentally restrained.
Answer . No, railroad workers work for private or publically traded companies such as BNSF, CSX, or Union Pacific.
Answer . they were only fed lunch, and even that they were required to bring form home. Many railroad workers only ate in the morning and in th evening when they came home from work.
the average social worker work the average hours of 40 hours a week. That doesn't include the addition input hours of having to go to afternoon meetings and evening visits with their clients

the underground railroad was established because slaves wanted ways to get out of their work. the underground railroad was used to free slaves.
Railroad track workers build, inspect, maintain, and repair more than three hundred thousand miles of railroad track across the country. Working in crews called road gangs, they inspect the rails, railroad ties, and roadbeds for signs of wear. Other crew members then rebuild washed-out roadbeds, rep…lace railroad ties, and lay new sections of rail. They use power equipment, such as spikedriving machines and bulldozers, as well as picks and shovels. Regular crews maintain the tracks, also called the right-of-way, throughout the year. Extra crews are needed to repair large sections of track at certain times of the year, especially in the northern part of the country. The railroads in the Chicago area employ the greatest number of railroad track workers. In addition to track workers, there are many other positions - electricians, signal maintainers, communications technicians, bridge workers, locomotive mechanics, train dispatchers, computer programmers, car cleaners, plumbers, civil engineers, electrical engineers, architects, and at least a dozen more fields. Describing the work of all the dedicated railroad workers on any major railroad can fill a small book. (MORE)
The amount of hours will vary by the shop and the current amount ofbusiness. A busy shop might have people working 12 hour days duringbusy times, while a slow shop might find it hard to keep peoplebusy for an 8 hour day.
12 hours a day and 7 days a week and they only make $5 a day
Just do:. 24 x 8 = ?. I can't be bothered to work it out but you can use a calculator (your computer should have a virtual one, if you don't have a proper one). 24 hours x 8 days = 192. 192 hours in 8 days.
Local laws are established by the Council/Board. They can beamended from time to time but the amendments must also pass throughthe Council/Board.
There are 24 hours in one day, so to find the number of hours in 8 days, one simply needs to find the product of 24 times 8. This happens to be 192 hours.
8 hours is one-third of a day. If the time period is 8 hours, the fraction of a day is 8 divided by 24 (hours in a day). 8/24 = 1/3
They found tons of land to lay the railroad. If I remember my history, one railroad had been constructed through a wetern town named Rock Ridge, only because quicksand was found where the original track was to be laid.
They earned about 24 dollars less than they made when the great depression was over. That would be $40.00 for an eight hour day of work. Not a lot of money to be earning for a job like theirs in the world nowadays.
Under Michigan law at what hour are minors under the age of 21 required to leave an establishment that serves alchol?
In seattle area, I know of switchmen making anywhere from $45k-$100k a year. Conductors and Engineers anywhere from $70k-120k
$15 million!! IMPROVING ANSWER: Maybe 15 million for all of them, all the railroad workers of the nation added together. For each person, it was probably more like 50 cents to one dollar per day.
The Adamson Act was created in response to a pending strike by therailroad workers. It mandated an eight-hour day for interstaterailway workers, with additional pay for overtime work.
There was unclaimed land for them to use for building the railroads and the people would pay them so it was a easy way to get money!
No law. There are labor laws concerning number of hours worked, the use of over time, and paid leave, but I don't think it covers a 5 day work week. Many people work 6 days a week or other schedules.
Irish, Chinese, and Americans... The most important jobs were given to the Chinese and Irish. Lots of men died >.< If you want more information, go check www.google.com or www.wikipedia.com or something like that xD lol. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Thanks for readin…g this ^.- (winky winky =P LOL) (MORE)
Type your answer here. NO its not legal to work 8 hrs a day without a lunch break
They didnt get much pay They ate a little They had to work in severe weather
The reformation really got a boost when England's King Henry the 8th wanted to dump his wife because she couldn't give him a son, but the Pope wouldn't granted him an annulment. Since divorce was not allowed in the Catholic Church, he was stuck with her. So he joined in on the Protestant bandwagon a…nd declared himself the head of religious matters in England. This led to the Church of England. (MORE)
To the best of my knowledge, there is no law. As a retail employee, I assume you are paid an hourly wage. If you do not work, you do not get paid. Simple. Your employer is not responsible for the way you manage your private time and if you want to have a family day, plan it on your day off. If it is… a special day when you would normally be scheduled to work, talk to your employer a week in advance to see if he would be willing to rearrange the schedule to allow you to take this day off instead of your regular day. It puzzles me that you would think you are entitled to be paid for not working? And even more puzzling to think that there is a law that would force your employer to pay you for not working. Even if there was a family emergency that forced you to leave work without advanced notice, you would not be entitled to pay. You would be entitled to quit your job if you didn't think you were getting enough "something for nothing". Good luck with that one! (MORE)
Unless local laws vary - most do not - what constitutes "part time" versus "full time" is defined by the company you work for, and is usually defined on a basis of hours worked in a week.
17 days and 17 hours minus 8 days and 7 hours equals 9 days and 10 hours.
Only if they work that day. There are no paid holidays except those employers decide to offer. There is no requirement for premium pay - double time or otherwise - on holidays. A tiny fraction of US employers are unionized and NEGOTIATED some holiday pay arrangements.
if you work an 8 hr day with a 1 hour lunch do you get a 10 min break
If a man orders 7500 new cars to be delivered in one week and each car must be worked on requiring 1 hour an 15min How many workers would it take if they only work 8 hours per day for 5 days?
(7,500 cars) x (1.25 hours/car) = 9,375 hours (9,375 hours) / (40 hours/worker) = 234.375 workers, which, where it involves people, rounds to 235 . Even if you stagger the shifts to have some people start on Wednesday and work the weekend, it makes no difference. Each worker works 40 hou…rs and that's it, so it still takes 235 of them, regardless of which days they work. (MORE)
It takes 8 workers 15 days to complete a job. If the job has to be completed in 10 days. How many more workers are needed?
I think you need an extra 4 workers (assuming each worker works the same amount as all the other workers).
Its simple actually. Ties made of wood are laid down first. Then tie plates, metal plates that protect the ties from the rails weight and force are laid on the tie where the rails will be laid. Next, the rails are laid over the tie plates. Then metal spikes are driven through holes in the tie plates… to hold them to the ties. A small metal "lip" on the spikes also helps secure the rails to the ground. Finally, special hopper cars, called Ballast hoppers dispense gravel over the ties, and a machine called a tamper inserts vibrating tongs into the gravel ballast and shake the gravel into the spaces between the ties. This finishes the railroad tracks. However, the joints, switches, communications, signals, and other infrastructure also has to be built. These are more complicated and more time consuming. (MORE)
I guess it was pretty basic - simple shirts , pants and straw hats. I doubt they wore those long traditional chinese outfits that we see in kung fu movies. Their clothes must have been practical,even FELA being passed. Maybe you should try researching some old photographs from that time.
253*8 = 2024. But some people will quite happily pass the work on to others and do nothing for themselves!
1 day = 24 hours so 8 days = 24*8 = 192 hours 0 minutes and 0 seconds.
U.S. Representative Ed Rees from Emporia, Kansas, presented a bill establishing the holiday through Congress. President Dwight Eisenhower, also from Kansas, signed the bill into law on May 26, 1954.
The number of hours you can be asked to work in a day really depends on your employment status (exempt vs non-exempt). Non-exempt means that the federal labor laws that regulate when breaks and lunches need to happen, how many you get, and limit the number of hours that can be worked in a row apply …to that employee. Exempt employees do not enjoy as many regulations; however, it is the company's best interest to set the level of responsibilities of the employee so that most days are between 8-9 hours of work. You can check out more at the Department of Labor site. (MORE)
It was tiring and took a lot of arm strength which was basically a man's job. Majority of the railroads were built during the Industrial Revolution which gave jobs to many people.
This is a legal question. Not a math question. The answer depends on the contract. But if they were fired the contract seems already broken so I would say no they do not get paid. The way the question is structured it sounds like they were paid for hours worked, not for completion of the job.
It depends on which months, obviously, as a month that has 31 days will have more hours than one that has 30.
Because for much of recent history, urban working hours were 9 am to 5 pm = 8 hours.
A Quarter is 1/4th SO ... a quarter of an 8 hr day would be 8/4 or 2 hr
At the time we were building the Transcontinental Railroad, most of the workmen were Chinese on the team coming from Sacramento heading east. The team building westbound were mostly Irish, Italian and African Americans, but primarily Irish.
The answer will depend on where in the world and whether you are talking about legally permitted hours or the reality.
A working day, 8am to 4pm, is 8 hours. Though, in a factory, the hours are usually 7.30am to 4pm (the extra 30 minutes is for unpaid 30 minute lunch break).
3 x 24 + 8 = 80 hours 80 x 60 = 4800 minutes Note: 24 hours per day 60 minutes per hour
To give your brain and body enough time to restore energy for thenext day. It's recommended that you have 8hrs - 8hrs 30mins ofsleep every night.
5 hours and 8 minutes = 5+8/60 = 5.133.... (recurring) hours. 1 day = 24 hours. So 5 hours and 8 minutes in terms of days is 5.133... / 24 = 0.21388... (recurring) days.
The Adamson Act was passed in 1916, sponsored by William C.Adamson, which established an 8-hour work-day, plus overtime pay.
