Video: ‘Suck it up, buttercup’: Gee and Angela debate when the workday begins

Aug 11, 2023, 3:15 PM

The discussion Friday started with talking about the case of an Amazon customer service worker who is accusing the company of failing to pay overtime wages, as reported in The Seattle Times Thursday.

It quickly devolved into a debate about when the workday begins and ends.

Gee Scott felt getting ready for work shouldn’t mean you get paid for it. Angela Poe-Russell, who filled in as co-host on “The Gee & Ursula Show” Friday, said in some cases you should get paid for work prep, especially if you are on the lower end of the pay scale.
