Kronos Supplemental Pay; A Sea Story

Jeff Millard — Oct 2010

The year I turned 12 I went to sea. Yeah… I know, this sounds like one of those stories Grandpa would tell you when you needed to be reminded how soft you kids have it now and how much harder it was then. I will confess my motive in telling you this story in a moment but for now just realize it it is true—my mother really did put me on a plane from California to British Columbia, all by myself, to work aboard the Lloyd B. Gore, a 128ft, 250 ton tugboat in the summer of 1979. I learned two big lessons. First, don’t ever tell immigration officials the purpose of your visit is to ‘go to sea and work on the docks’ (something about work visas, child labor trafficking and other sensitivities). Second, I learned about the value of Differential (aka: Supplemental) Pay first hand.

Dwain Lambrigger — Oct 2010

Come to think of it, that should cover just about everyone. So please read on.

BRASSING OUT - Kronos Data Mining

Jeff Millard — Oct 2010

Underground mines are required to have a TAG IN/OUT board that miners use to indicate when they go underground and when they leave the mine. Go into the mine, put your tag on the IN side, leave the mine and put your tag on the OUT side. This is known as “BRASSING IN” or “BRASSING OUT” since many mines continue to use brass tags with the miner's name stamped on it. The obvious purpose is to quickly and easily tell who is underground if there is a problem or at the end of the day. (If you think missing your carpool ride home is bad just imagine missing the last elevator out of the mine with no one checking for stragglers)
