Backstory: The building I work in has commercial space on the ground floor and apartments up above. My company was hired in part to be the super for the building. The building has never been properly maintained in the past 100 yrs. And there is absolutely structural damage. (Our company did what we could, but we didn’t have the budget to do much more than keep the apartments operational.) The building is comprised of 4 different adjoining sections.
Troubling times for us here at Help-QAwritten () ago
It has been brought to my attention that there are people, members of our community, that don’t feel safe here.
You should tell him how you feel. Good relationships are built on the trinity of: Trust, Communication, and Mutual Respect. This is true for all relationships whether romantic, professional, familial, fraternal, etc. And if one pillar is missing then the relationship is going to be miserable. If more than one is missing the relationship is almost guaranteed to fail- written - voted for by verge, soco
So, I did up a calendar representation for you. The $800 is correct because the pay period is simply shorter.
The spreadsheet shows four weeks, with the shortened pay period being the sage-coloured one. It has the days you work, and the theoretical pay you make.
The top colour in each week shows the pay period. The lower colours are the days you work in each pay period. Then what you are getting paid on each payday for the respective pay period.
You didn't lose any money, it is simply the shorter pay period. You were still paid for each day you worked.- written - voted for by NacthoMan

So, I found my math...
Earth to Proxima Centauri = 4.22 Light Years away
Constant-Thrust Trajectory (maneuver)
4.22 Light Years = 5 years @ 0.95m/s^2 = 0.5C
= 10 years travel time
So the theory is that the ship accelerated up to 0.5C stayed there for 5 years, then started the deceleration process.
t^1 = dilated time
t = stationary time
V = velocity
C = speed of light
=10yr * 0.9075
=9.075yr on the ship
If I understand time dilation properly, it is how things are effected by time/speed.
Yes, light leaves the star 1 million years away, and travels for 1 million years to reach here. (it is already travelling at light speed)
When an object increases speed to near-light speed, things change relative to its origin. The outside world seems to slow down due to the change in speed.
The trip for the object takes 1 million years from the point of view of the origin, but it takes less time from the perspective of the object.
For a novel I started, where a colony ship was going to Proxima B, I figured out the math... The trip from the perspective of Earth was going to take 10 years. On the ship it would take right around 9.
(I'll see if I can still find my notes for that story)
Now all of that said... part of the FTL drives, depending on the theory, is that the warp field/hyperspace/etc. is that it allows traversing vast distances without relativity affecting those inside the bubble.- written
You would have to speak to a lawyer about that...
I know here in Canada it is legal.
But you didn’t/won't have lost any hours.... assuming you work a full Mon-Fri week when you leave the company, on the old schedule you'll have only worked four days (Tue-Fri) in that pay period.
On this new schedule you will get the full 5 days.
Basically this change in pay period just dictates when you would have the short pay period. Now as opposed to your last pay.- written
No on your very last pay, assuming you work a full week, it would have been 800, because you would not have the one day from the second week.
Now, on the new pay schedule, your last pay will still be 1000.
Absolutely. I know it would suck for budgeting...
I think, if you were to compare the two different pay schedules, at the end of your time there, the last pay would have the 'lost' day, assuming you worked a full week.- written
