    Even if the company had agreed to pay them time and a half, they would have lost most, if not all, of it to taxes.

    Doubt that the one day of lots of overtime would bump them into a higher tax bracket.

    They would have to earn almost a few hundred grand to go into the next bracket.

    A suburban Detroit mayor says a woman has died in a vehicle that was stranded in about 3 feet of water after heavy rains caused widespread flooding in southeastern Michigan.
    Numerous roads have been closed by flooding in the Detroit suburb where 5.2 inches of rain fell Monday. Fouts says roughly 1,000 vehicles are abandoned in the city.

    It would work itself out in the end but for the paycheck in question they would get slammed by Uncle Sam.
