We hear people make budgets, and figure out debts vs credit. I’ve watched many people work many many long hours of overtime, etc and be away from their families to earn “Extra” to help pay off the bills. Many of you are in a position right now that if you could even bring in $200 more a month that would be a HUGE help.
Secret…………If your reading this and on this page you Can!
People don’t take the time to figure out the math 🙁
If you get paid an hourly rate of lets say $15 per hour, you work 10 hours that is $150 !! By the time they tax of taxes, CPP/QCP, EI, etc you can easily account for approx 40 percent of that to be gone in “deductions” so you have $90 really!! But than you need items at the store…… Here in Nova Scotia the tax is a total of 15 Percent ! soooooooo My $70 in items plus tax comes to $80.50 , guess the rest of my $90 would go in the gas tank to get me to and from work and to and from the store. 🙁 However keep in mind if you had to pay child care while you worked….its even less 🙁
You just spent approx 12 hours (to and from work, work) away from your family for $70 in actual “goods or services” that can help your family!
