    We were told this morning that a good change for us will be taking place with our pay at Jan. 1. It will be discussed later, this week or Monday a.m. Anyone know about this??

    Weekly pay vs semi monthly pay.
    1/2 month gone now incorporated into your regular pay rate.
    Going to be treated re pay more like hourlies.
    So it could be good or bad for you.

    The Operations Supe said he wished he could get paid like we were going to. So it will not be salary anymore??

    What do you mean by the 1/2 month gone....??

    he means not getting your xmas half month bonus, id imagine we'd still be on the salay (based on the 27.5hrs)

    This I already understood, but didn't get the 1/2 month gone. I get that now, too. So, a SMALL pay raise put into our pay the whole rest of the year to make up for that. So, HOW is this a better thing, though getting paid each week is a plus.

    One benefit would be that your 1/2 month salary in December will not be taxed so heavily as opposed to the 1/2 month salary that will be included in the weekly salary. Most folks are taxed above the 30% mark on the 1/2 month because the IRS treats it like a bonus, not an actual wage.

    This is the pits.

    I'd prefer our pay went back to monthly, on the 26th of every month. As a college student, that made life easy. I would get paid at one time and was able to easily pay my rent and bills and not worry about budgeting throughout the month. I was peeved enough when we went to bi-monthly, but now this?

    And our half-month "bonus" check is now going away? Now I'll have to save up for XMas throughout the year. (Like that's going to happen :()

    Once we go to weekly pay and no more bonus, we'll officially be what everyone already knows we are - glorified loaders.

    its counter intuitive to say youd have budget more with gettting paid more often.....
    I worked a sort for a year and LOVED getting paid everyweek, it may have only a hundred-hundred-fifty but it was money coming in every week. it tossed me for a loop for a while to get paid one week, then get paid three weeks later and then get paid a week or so later

    For you maybe.

    I didn't have to budget at all when getting paid once per month. Now I will.

    I see what youre saying, youd have to set aside x dollars for bills and rent and whatnot....ill be glad to go back to that tho
     
  12. yea this is true, we saw the paperwork for it at my building a couple weeks ago.

    You're still salaried 27.5 a week, but the half month "bonus" will now be factored into your pay. So yes you'll see somewhat of a raise due to this. I believe there were other things that they said were somewhat different, but actually work just the same as before (holiday wage, times when OT kicks in etc)

    No way, man. Once a month for a paycheck sucks. I NEVER want that.

    As another poster said, the Xmas pay wouldn't be taxed as heavily, true. But having that broken up over 52 weekly checks will barely show a difference at all. lol

    Say for example one gets $800 every 2 weeks. After taxes maybe you will have $650. (using round numbers) Divide the latter by 52 and you have $12.50. :) Oh, well!

    However, I DO like the weekly pay, which should result in less tax withheld out of one's pay. Not much, though.

    When I received my half month check I would put it all in my 401k, that way they wouldnt, and couldnt tax it. I think that I would pay about 50 dollars in taxes, that way I would end up with the extra 250 they would have taken out in taxed in my 401. I would recomend any one who still has that option, not to put as much in during the year and put all the half month in because you make out much better. Jmo

    You may be getting paid every week, but no one is making you cash the checks or look at your bank account every week. Save 'em up and make 1 deposit or only look at your bank account on the 26th. JMO.

    Id imagine if they do this to pt sup, theyd follow suit with the ft management sometime after, having a pay day on a date (as opposed to day) creates a problem in payroll

    Is this policy going into effect for all PT Sups across the US? I have not heard a single thing about this in my HUB in the South Cal.
