I am a firm believer in it for the following reasons: 

How do we get reimbursed for the time it takes to get to the job (I would absolutely request mileage if no PD). 

How about the time it takes to prepare your exhibits for sending and time spent driving to FedEx.  (It's not always on the way to other errands.)

How about the time it takes to set up for the job?  I've had a firm request to be there an hour early for realtime.

I had an internet streaming dry-run setup that did not go well on the provider's side. 

Also, just as a general question.  Is it generally before 8 am and after 6 pm that people charge an hourly rate for overtime?  I had a job that went to 6:09.  I don't want to seem like I'm gouging.  What are other people doing?

Lest anyone think I even contemplated offering an 80% discount for a second hook-up to the same side, I meant 20%!

I woldn't charge for 6:09.  I think it is before 8:00 a.m. and after 6:00 p.m.  I agree with you on the per diem, but a lot of firms don't seem to pay it.  Others do.  Just hit and miss.  The problem is if you complain too much, at least in my case, there are about 20 other reporters standing in line behind me to take my place.  You just deal with the fact there is no per diem I guess, at least I have. 

I have a RT streaming job for tomorrow and check out the words that I'm going to be writing:

Methyl Cellosolve acetate


methyl ethyl ketone



glycol monoethyl ether acetate

cellosolve acetate


Should be a fun day.  At least I know what's coming my way.

How did it go?
