My agency gives $5K in two installments. But it’s taxed

Hahaha man that’s the worst

In my experience they’re only like $500, and taxed.

Jesus H Cw1. I would fo sho stick around for that payout.

Seriously, 5K? We get 2k and it becomes $1100 after Unkie Sam

Our standard is $1k, but if we have a great need or have to hire quickly, they make it $4k.

Standard is $4K for us. At this point I don’t give a damn if it’s taxed, I’m getting double my pay for a month and it’s saving my ASS.

Same 🙊
