  • I work 50 hours a week. So why am I paid for 40?

    THE QUESTION I have always wondered why salaried employees are not eligible for overtime pay. My work week has always been 50 hours or more. It’s a running joke with my peers about how it is impossible to do my job in 40 hours.

    If you want to save space, buying bunk beds for your kids is a smart bet. But if you want to save a lot of space, do as this father did and build them yourself.

  • 7 Reasons to Consider Adjusting Your Federal Tax Withholding Right Now -- The Motley Fool

    Taxes may be the furthest thing from your mind at the moment, with Tax Day well over six months away, but a subtle tax change now could have a big impact on what happens when April 15 rolls around. The easiest way consumers can influence their federal income taxes is by making changes to their W-4. In layman's terms, we're talking about changing your federal tax withholding allowance, or what you allow you the federal government to withhold from each of your paychecks. The government doesn't determine how much it withholds from each paycheck; that's up to you to figure out and let your employer know.
