Im doing the figures and its coming out to be more than your saying, even with no uplift on overtime i still comes out to over 120grand a year at 72 hours a week. Is the 24.23 an hour merely for overtime purposes ? Because at 4,200 a week with uplift i am getting $88,200.00 on just 40hours a week with uplift, so with overtime i i am getting $125,417.28. Obviously i am not doing something right as you guys are over there and are getting the pay stubs, was I offered more than you or am I just an idiot when it comes to math :p

All R&R periods will be paid a total of 80 hours at straight time rates with no uplifts over a minimum of ten (10) days off. R&R can not be accrued; therefore, they will either be taken or forfeited.

Skin,
Thanks, Midwest offered me Bagram but I had to put them off until after February due to other commitments, the same commitments would prevent me from accept a KBR slot until then too.
That is why I just demob'd. Going to kabul with midwest.

Sounds like an "uplift" is a percentage of pay, paid on top of you base pay, for only the first 40 hours/week. I that correct?

Eman1193,

That calculation is correct but you also have to take into account the R&R's so if you took now vacation you would get the 125.

One little question. Was the "Base Monthly Salary" correct? For a 72 hour workweek (288 hrs per month) that calculates to a base hourly wage of $14.58. I must be missing something.

Well, I think I see the error of my ways. Apparently the 4200 is divided by 160 hours of straight time to give the base hourly rate of $26.25, and go from there.
