# 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.

Math is off. That's a little less than \$18,000 by my math. Like \$17,600 or something.

I'm confused. How does that little check a week amount to over 70k a year?

That was my thought as well. My husband makes between 500-700 a week on average and 30,000 a year lol. I'm like wtf? And now we know why she works minimum wage...

Oh at least she has a job, so its not a total fail. unless she's a cashier or in accounting, her poor math skills won't be a problem

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.

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.

This isn't the SAT's OP, you can use a calculator!

Maybe she thought there 208 weeks in a year?
