How much money does a longshoreman earn?

Depending on the Skills of the Job a longshoreman can make around $26 to $33 an hour.

As of July, 2008 the base hourly day-side rate for longshoremen on the West coast is between $31.18 and $36.98. Though that's the base salary, many jobs pay 10 hours per shift and often times when it's busy you can pick up extra work. Many longies that hustle can do about $150k per year. Foreman and clerks make much more than that however.

*** You can go to payscale.com to get a national average***

When they work, casuals make $18.50 to $21.50 an hour. But the goal for most is union membership, with earnings of $60,000 to $100,000 a year, plus a full package of medical and pension benefits.

-Longshoreman with straight dope-

West coast longshoremen in Canada earn $36 for day shift, $46 for afternoons and $58 for graveyards. Both day and afternoon shifts are eight hours and graveyard is 6.5 hours. Rated jobs, as in anything that is not labor, for the most part earn the operator an additional hour at time and a half.

It is a casual work environment. Longshoreman can work anywhere from zero to seven days a week if the work is there. Busy ports will often see everyone working a lot, slower ports... Well, not so much.

I've talked to a few guys from the port of Long Beach in California and I am working under the assumption that longshoremen on both sides of the border are making the same rates of pay, but I could be wrong. Since contracts are negotiated with the Pacific Maritime Association, I'm going to assume that any port that is a member of that body will pay those rates, though.

I've calculated a five day week on afternoon and graveyard shift earning me about $108,000 per year for a typical 40 hour work week. That doesn't include holiday pay, paid holidays or things like extensions which would boost your overall earnings over your base wages.

How much money does a CNA earn?

Answer

I just started one month ago, and currently employed through an agency and I average $11.00 to $13.00 an hour.

Answer

Approx. $11 but dont hold me to it. It all depends on the facility which you work and their payrate.


CNA's make very little while providing excellent care for people w/ disabilities. I have never gotten my CNA license but I did take a course that teaches caregivers and CNA's how to find private paying clients which allows me to charge $25-45/hr. It has worked and I am really happy with the result
The average pay of a CNA is recorded to be $35,000 per annum approximately. In the following, we are going to talk about the CNA salary range; sorted out according to factors such as the state and city of employment, type of employer, and experience level.

How much money does a comedian earn?

It depends

I have been working in stand-up comedy for about three years now. My main focus is still on my obtaining my college degree, but I am in constant contact with working comics. The answer to this question is... it depends.

No one starts out making great money. You have to "pay your dues" in stand-up, which means spending a lot of your own money trying to get exposure and gigs on your own. You will spend time and money driving, waiting, eating, and schmoozing in your early days. Entering contests and taking guest spots are a great way to get time in front of a non open-mic audience. Some of these gigs even pay.

Hosting or emcee work is your first pay level, usually between $10 and $50 per show. Not bad considering that you only work for 10 minutes. However, if it costs you $30 in gas and tolls to get to your $20 gig...well, you do the math.

Comedy clubs pay between $200 and $1000 (or more) per show for features and headliners. These are usually experienced people who have already done all the work mentioned above. The ones who want to get paid will hustle to get more gigs and exposure, which will increase the amount they can make (provided they don't suck). The goal is to get "discovered" like Dane Cook or Dave Chappelle. Your price can then skyrocket accordingly.

For most, the best way to make money in comedy is working the college scene. Colleges have a lot of disposable income for entertainment, and they are happy to blow it on comedians. You can make $2000-$4000 (or more) for a show on a college campus. The competition is out there, but there are so many schools that you should be able to always work if you have any talent.

This answer is not all inclusive, and there are certain things I have ignored due to time constraints. Just remember, the main factors that will contribute to your income level are your talent, experience, and willingness to work. Surprisingly, the first two always improve if you really work on the last one. "Pay your dues", get funny, and get out there if you want to get paid!

As the writer before me said, "it depends" that truly is the real answer. The cool thing is though, that if you become a professional your yearly salary is from only $10,000 a year to a hunking chunk of $10,000,000 a year.

What should do before you hit the court for a tennis match?

It is important to prepare your body for tennis. You need to eat properly and stretch. Here are some tips to help you out when you are about to hti the court. Make sure you are well hydrated. It is critical to be hydrated before you even step out on the tennis court. Drink water or an electrolyte laden sport drink such as Gatorade. The sugar in the sports drink will give you an instant energy boost. Make sure to consume a light, high carb snack one to two hours before your tennis match. A bagel with peanut butter and a banana would be perfect. The bagel and banana provide carbohydrates while the peanut butter provides protein. Stay away from any high fat foods and heavy meals within three hours of your match. High fat food will make you feel heavy and sluggish on the court. Take time toog around the tennis court three times to get your heart pumping and your muscles warm. Once your muscles have become warm, then you can go through a simple series of stretches.
