Also just what "disposable income" you will have left AFTER paying all your normal everyday bills in Regina.

I wish all you guys going to Loblaws the very best of luck but your all talking among yourselves and you need to ask the ex-UK guys who have been there for a right few years maybe since 2004 IF they would work in Regina for [email protected] that type of work for that kind of money!!!!!!
Big Truck I have a signed contract stating I will be paid no less than $23 per hour with add on IE load unload hitch un Hitch etc I will be doing a 10hr day with breaks,running from Regina to Winnipeg either 5 on 2 off or 6 on 2 off.That my friend does not add up to $700 a week.The distance between Regina and Winnipeg is 355miles or 571km X each mile by 53cents and still I don't get $700 a week.I can't see Loblaws bringing over at least 16 to 24 family's and then hitting them with $700 a week wages,that would criminal.And after a good Interview with the Transport manager i feel he is more than open with us all.Remember Loblaws are going Very BIG in the next few months with a new rail road being built next to their new facilities.
