# 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.

ok, I thought I was going freaking crazy! If you get 350 a week, 350x4=1400 a month. A year has 12 months, so 1400x12=16800

Quoting BEXi:

I dont see how you did that math.

good to know.

In order to make \$72,000 a year you would have to bring home \$6000 a month and about \$1500 a week.  Think your math is a bit off.

I hope math isn't  a requirement at your job.

Yearly at \$340 is \$17, 680

Yearly at \$350 is \$18,200

Both are well below the poverty level.  All you have to do is multiply the weekly income by 52 weeks to get your yearly income.

I hated math as a kid....sucked so bad at it. But even I could see you are wrong on yours. Heck, my 10 year old old could figure that out. They just had a test on this type of stuff
