Complaint Review: Labor Ready
Labor Ready Unfair text response system & milage fee STRATFORD New Jersey
*UPDATE Employee: It's Employment

*UPDATE Employee: Nothing farther from the truth
Labor ready now uses a new text messaging system to inform workers of temporary assignments. Once you receive the “text” message you must reply back with “YES” and you will get the job, BULLS**T!
This system allows the person (labor ready staff) to assign the job to the person they want to give it to, for example if one of the Labor Ready (LR) staff workers do not like you, and you reply with “YES” to a sent out text message, well guess what you will not get the job, it is happening to me!
I voiced my concern one day about being paid travel for jobs over 50 miles, which LR does not do, and ever since then, I have not been assigned a job even though I have answered text messages within seconds of them being sent to my phone, coincidence, I think not.
Also, this LR branch #1490 uses temp worker drive other temp workers to sites, utilizing their personal vehicles and the driver then charges other workers $5 to do this and this could cause a problem with liability. For example, there is one guy who drives a grey BMW and while he was driving another worker to a job, his car window was damaged and he wanted to FIGHT the dude for “breaking” his window! Well if Labor Ready would’ve gotten off their cheap azz and used the VAN that sits out front, maybe that “fight” could’ve been avoided
Labor Ready charges the customer a mileage rate and the temp employees do not see a dime of it, unless they speak up or are told by the LR customer, like what happened in my situation.
I and another worker were on a job site and the customer mentioned travel pay and we were kind of of shocked because Labor Ready never told us about the travel pay, but LR charged the customer a rate of $20 pr car load and how is that possible “the car load” part if I am driving my own vehicle? We both got the pay but I could tell LR didn’t want to pay it. Then they (LR) only wanted to pay one of us the little old lady behind the counter said we should’ve drove one car lol I think not, why doesn’t LR just use their van to drive workers to sites?
In closing, be careful when dealing with these jerks and if you feel that you’re being treated unfair contact True Blue Compliance at 855.702.5378 or go to the website www. trueblueinc.alertline.com and file a complaint!
