i was wondering how much do part time package handlers make?
Depends on the area of the country or world your in.
ours start at 8.50-9.50 (unskilled-skilled) then you get periodic pay raises.
In my area, $8.50 for package handler, $11.67 for driver helper. *starting wage*
do you know how much u get every check?
Depends how many hours you work... YOU do the math.
Govt. takes between 19-22% but again this varies depending where you live
Union takes a bit too 2.5x hourly rate per month, but again this can Vary on region.
my area is $12.50. it depends where you are. it would be a buck or so less of the 'natural' (market-driven) minimum wage.
i don't know how it goes down south, but up north, the feds give VERY GENEROUS tax breaks to college students. ~$20k income tax exemption
You basically bring home gas money for the first 2 years or so....after 2 years, you can finally afford that newspaper you were saving up for. It gets better after that!!
Package handling is best suited for:
a) students, where the tuition reimbursement program adds an extra $5/hr to the wage
b) those with interest to move up the ladder at the p/t level
c) elderlies, self-employed, and stay-at-home parents who need something to do and/or want the health benefits.
it's not intended to be a 'living-wage'. that's what the driver positions are for.
