There is always the opportunity to do overtime to make up your wage. But don't rely on it. This is all traffic (mail volume) based, so the 25 hour contracts will be the first to lose hours when the work load slackens. But sick leave generates opportunities too. There are also afternoon collections available, or work in the mail centres if your truly keen to earn more.
