9 to 5, what a way to not make a living

By Anonymous - 28/08/2021 18:01 - Canada - Burlington

Today, I excitedly went to check this week's paycheck, only to see that I only received $9.00. This isn't a mistake, this is really what I make. FML

So... did you only work an hour, not check your contract/discuss your pay before starting your job, or did mommy and daddy say you've been a good boy this week?

Is the gov grabbing your income (child support, back taxes, etc)? Or are you one of Nikes child laborers? Need more context.

So obviously you worked like an hour.

you need more hours bud... I don't know what the wages are like where you are, but you need more than 1-2 hours of work a pay cheque before you complain about pay... find a more reliable job or ask for more hours.

At least you have "free" health care. Did you accidentally elect to contribute 95% to your 401(k) or equivalent?

That $2.13 an hour does disappear when taxes are taken out for credit card tips.

I have a feeling you started like an hour before the new pay period and won't get this week's pay until next check. (depending on biweekly or weekly checks)
