    Lot’s of places around mason city do this. So do a couple guy’s in clear lake. It is more common than you think. check your stubs keep your own hours and do your owm math. Bet quite a few of you have or will get rippied off because employers know most people are stupid as hell and trust their boss.

        manufacturing isnt a real job? huh….. you probably push paper in some office and if you and the last five years of your work went up in flames today, i bet nobody at a REAL job would hear about it til the end of the day, never care and come out totally uneffected. sorry but physical labor is a real job. sitting in an office chair all day is for pussies, weaklings and fag’s.
