Customer Question

hello, I am employed by a company that pays a salary and also day rate. I work in the USA and Australia. while in Australia after I work a specific amount of days my day rate goes up, time and a quarter after five days straight in field, and time and a half after ten days straight in the field. I get paid time and a half working on holidays ie Labor Day. my question is, if I am already getting time and a half, do I get paid another time and a half on top of the time and a half I am already getting paid or does the pay stay the same?
