I'm well, first day in a week it's not been raining, walking in the yard is like stepping on a sponge.Hello Mr. Seabreeze. How are you doing this morning? The answer to your question is "yes they do". All full time new hires that are a certified mechanic or CDL qualified with required endorsements (city,hostle,dock, road) start at 90% of full scale for their first year before they go to full scale.
I never did think starting a new man off less than full pay was right.
After all, he does the same work, has the same responsibilities, and gets cut no slack for mistakes. JMO
