So I got my paycheck, for 2 weeks. I didn't work much, only about 18 hours. I grossed $215, and after TAXES and union dues and 3% for retirement I brought home $80 bucks. How sad is that????????
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
You can't screw IRS, but can you screw the union and retirement?
Union no. they make me pay union dues to work there but the retirement is a good thing because I can borrow off it when I need it. Like how I just got my car from my brother. I used part of that...
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.
Okay so taxes and retirement are a percentage of your income, which should decrease with fewer hours. What added up to the total deduction. It doesn't seem right.
Im really not sure. If I make more, they take a lot more anyhow..
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.
Makes you wonder why war never ends huh?
Do you have any other deductions? I'm with Nelle, it doesn't seem right.
Do you have any other deductions? I'm with Nelle, it doesn't seem right.
one sec Ill write the deductions. going to get my stub
Deductions or not kmackey that is piss poor pay for such a hugely responsible position. You guys are the business.When I spent some time in hospital the nursing assistants did most of the work!
You got that right we do most of the work. It seems that in my profession the less work you do, The more the pay. How fair is that?
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.
Hi kmackey is a CNA a nursing assistant?
The pay for nursing assistants is lousy in Australia. Nurses if qualified in theater work get enormous pay here. It seems quite inequitable.
I am a certified nurses aid and I make 11.83 an hour, part time. But Pay a lot in taxes to 2 states and union dues, and retirement and 1 10% garnishment..
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.
ok here are all the deductions
Federal taxes: 2.72
ny state: 22.05
Pa state: 22.05
FICA : 13.97
retirement loan: 50.00 (forgot about this one)
CSEA union dues: 8.80
Agree, You deserve a lot more for such a stressful and difficult job.
yea the pay sucks but I do like working there. The patients make it worth it to me.
I have been there 6 years. And Now I gotta go night night because I gotta be there at 7, so I got to get up at 5:30 am.
Okay it's the retirement loan and garnishment that ate up $77.71 out of your paycheck of $225. Taxes and retirement took out $72.
Living and working in two states is hurting you as well.
You need to write more hubs and make more money. Glad you decided to join the hubchallenge. I hope money things get easier for you.
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.
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
Mighty Mom, you've got to be the most comforting person on the planet. You just made me feel better and more relaxed. Thanks
i love where I work and I know everyone there so its hard to wanna move to a different job, ya know....
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.

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 Democrats have always wanted it? All views are welcome.

I want to get people's views on this. The thread's inspired by comments I've seen from people in and outside of this forum that suggest taxes are theft. The idea goes: if the government forces people to pay taxes (under threat of imprisonment) then they are essentially stealing people's money by...

Everyone hates the "rich" and I do not understand why. I was always under the impression the American dream was to become successful and stay successful? SO why are we always trying to punish the rich?
