ok. Math.

Let's be nice and say you only work 35 hours a week.
(Rate x Hours) x weeks = Gross Yearly Income
(8 x 35) x 52 = 14,560

This doesn't include Holiday Pay.

There's no point in arguing over the internet. I know what I am paid, and after the government has their way with my checks I am lucky to see $420 every two weeks.

Don't forget the taxes and other things they deduce... I doubt he will ever see that brut amount. For instance, I make roughly 30k working part-time, I only see close to 18k every year from it.

It probably depends if you actually count the money you spend on a new car or not. Just for the existing car probably about 1000$ a year. Maintainace, repairs, parts are just not getting cheaper.

I just realized that the poll was closed. I had set it to 200 days originally. I have re-opened it

Sorry about that!
