    I'm a package handler, newly hired. I make 9.50 an hour and last week I made about 45 hours
    I have two questions
    1) I've been hearing around that after 40hrs you're payed double and I was wondering if this was true.
    2) I was wondering about how much I would be getting payed after deductions
    Thanks a lot for the help !

    PT package handlers make OverTime after 5 hours. Not double time. 1 1/2. Must be in a skilled position. Otherwise pay rate is $8.50 an hour. Start doing the math.

    I've already gotten a few paychecks my pay is 9.50 I worked the 25 hrs and made 19:38 hours in overtime. It comes out to 513 but I wanted to know how much to expect after the taxes are deducted

    It would be very difficult if not impossible for any of us to answer this without the type of personal information that you should not divulge. If I had to guess I would say your take home should be between $300-400.

    Upstate is right. Way too many variables. Just don't go spend it all until you have cashed it.

    Generally it's about 75% that you take home.

    He's a young PTer so he may take home a bit more than most of us old-timers.
