I just found out that someone who has been poor-mouthing it for a long time is making a lot more money than I thought she was. I now know that her annual base salary is $47,800 per year, or $920 per week. The way she talks, I would have guessed that she was making closer to half that amount. I'd like to estimate what her take home pay is. She is single, 61 years old and has just herself as a dependent. The only significant other deduction she might take would be for mortgage interest. She may have a mortgage and a second mortgage totaling $60,000 to $80,000, so if they are at 6% interest, then she may be paying $3,600 to $4,800 a year in interest. That may not even figure into her income tax if her standard deduction is worth more than that. About how much does she take home a week?
