What I wish was different
Being allowed to work more hours. The contract GM has with UB makes it so that UB pays us while we work at GM. I'm not sure if this is actually why we are only allowed to work 28 hours a week, but this is how I understand it. Since we under state payroll if we work full time we need insurance benefits offered to us because technically we are UB state employees. That might not be 100% correct because if you come back as a graduate student, you can work full time but that might be something completely separate. Either way, you can only work 28 hours a week which hinders your economic gain and the amount of experience you can get.
