During the guarantee period let's say for an example that actually happened this summer. Rained out half day on Monday. Due to hard rain and on and off rain towards the end of the week that's all they worked. For those that actually showed up on time for the half work day on Monday, yes they get paid for 40hrs. If "John" no showed or called out on that Monday "John" gets no paycheck for that week. If it rained all week and we couldn't work every one gets paid for 40hrs. If they only work 35 hours but actually showed up every day on time and do not take off early, they too get paid 40hrs. Even though I pay roughly around $14 an hour at the end of the year their actual pay received per hour of work is more around the $18 range (for those that don't call out constantly).
