  • my DH's work bills Medicaid, Medicare, and DHS as well as private insurance companies. they are a not-for-profit organization so they receive a lot of grants as well. so i guess that would be the government which in turn would be the tax payers.

  • DH works at a university, so it's probably from a combination of many things like student tuition, federal research funding such as NIH, grants, private donations, etc. I'm a SAHM now, but I was in banking, so my paycheck came from their profits--which is from loan interest (minus what they pay out for deposits).

  • From the people that support the company that DH works for (i.e. customers). Just like everyone here supports several businesses, his job depends on the contribution by consumers.
