I work for 40 hrs aweek

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
This week it will be less because of Monday it was orientation so I only had 6.5 hours that day. Tuesday and Wednesday I got 8 hours in. It will be 8 hours when I work for 5 day so 8x5 is 40 hours. So before taxes is $380 an I'm claiming 4 dependents so one of my co-workers said that he claims 1 and he gets about $305 or something like that. He says mine will be like $340 or $350 weekly sense I'm claiming 4. Still good paycheck I say. I get paid weekly not biweekly.

If I get $340 I will get a whole month $1360.00, for a year $70720.00 so it's good.
If I get $350, I will get a whole month $1400.00, for a year $72800.00.

Either way will be great! Not tomorrow but next Friday I get paid and I can't wait.

I understood what you meant and I agree with you.i work 40+ hrs a week (right now I'm off work because of surgery) and I'd go home and start my second "job" of being mom. I don't feel superior or anything.

never said i was.  (whining or superior)

Quoting imvanilla:

Oh hush and stop whining.



Not everybody can handle working, nor can they handle staying home.



Novel idea, we are all different and you aren't a superior mom because you work.





Quoting Anonymous:

maybe you should rethink your choices if you can't hack the sahm thing.  by the way, working moms only get paid for 40 hours but our jobs are never done, either.

I am a SAHM.  Wish I only worked 40 hrs.  And I don't get paid nearly as well as you.

Um, if you make 340 a week, that is $17,680. In order to make $70,720 a year, you would have to make $1360 a week.

Nope, not at all. If you want to get paid, go to work, its pretty much common sense.

Quoting Anonymous:

Obviously you are the bitter one here. 


Quoting Anonymous:

Then why not go work... you don't get paid to take care of your own kids.

Quoting Anonymous:

I've been a working mom too, so I know what it's like.  Not being bitter, just wishing I made some money.


Quoting Anonymous:

You think that when working moms get home they just lay around? No, they have to do everything a SAHM does. It was your choice, don't be bitter about it.
