WEll I am a CNA in a nursing home. I usually work more hours than that but this was a short paycheck because I went to NC to get a car from my brother but man they take a lot out of me...I only work part time at 11.83 an hour
Oh yea and because I Live in PA and Work in NY, I got to pay taxes in 2 different states. I am thinking I need a job under the table or something. Its like I work for the government to make all the money. I cant even pay my bills.
Oh, the whole thing doesn't seem right. Actually I don't believe it is right.
I was digging in the Const. for how or why it is legal to pay federal income tax.
According to the 16th and several court appeals, it was determined that the 16th amendment only serves to distiguish exise taxes and such but further states that Congress has always had the power to tax according the Art.1 sec.8... so when you read it, it says that Congress does have the power to tax for purposes of national defense (in other words put) keep reading, it says. Congress can only tax for "war" for a maximum of two years to pay for it.
My hours very a lot. A bout a month ago I worked almost full time in 2 weeks. So like 80 hours, which I grossed around 900 and I only brought home 500 because I also have a 10% garnishment, but that only goes into affect if I work so many hours.
It just seems like I only bring home half as much as I make. Its so unfair... Yes I do have a garnishment but I have to grose more than around 300 in my pay in order for them to take it out. Its for a student loan back in 1998.
The world economy is borked. Corruption won 30 years ago or so and has had free-for-all since. The unthinking, shiftless subsets butress through imagery and mass the manipulative, hidden royalty nouveau. The "liberals" and "conservatives" argue over whether gay people can get married or if there are bombs in Iraq while the worthless and the greedy ironically make the rules together laughing at us both. The only difference between the worthless and the greedy is that the greedy know they are full of shit. Assassins and parasites work together in undeclared unity.
Sorry you bring nothing home for your efforts, but, that's the world we live in. Capitalism is failing, socialism is a joke, and communism was stupid before it was even tried. Hopefully capitalism will revive, but greed is ruinous and too many think socialist regulation will save it. The flaw is not the system, but in humanity.
Bummer. Can you find a CNA job in the same state you live in? Not that that's a huge part of the problem, but it is doubling your taxes paying in 2 states instead of 1. Not sure what your situation is in terms of ability to go to school and get LPN or RN degree, but if you can, that's gonna give you a HUGE bump in pay. Like astronomical. Good luck. And try not to borrow against your retirement plan. Pretend that money doesn't even exist... you'll be glad later on! Peace and have a wonderful day at work tomorrow (today where you are). MM
Wow, yes you did pay a lot. Let's ask General Electric, how much out of a few Billion, They paid in taxes....................OH, yes, They pay Nothing. That's a kicker. So the rest of us get to carry the burden, how nice of the rich to Allow us to do that.
Hi!Wrote my first hub and tweaked it and tweaked it - but it still doesn't seem right. Is it too long? Should I break it into two hubs? If so, should I start two new hubs and unpublish this one or edit this one and add...
Let's face it, Republicans and Democrats have been big spenders and now have new taxes for us to pay. Should we riot and protest like the French? That way we can finally become European just the way the...
