What is your net take home pay every two weeks?

  1. I have read many posts regarding pay rates. However, once deductions and such have been taken out, what are you left with post tax, benefits, etc.

    Can you tell me the state or province you are in also?


    I live in Ontario Canada, gross about 1700.00 every two weeks, bring home net about 1200.00 How does that compare? I am in critical care. My deductions are about 300 for tax, 100 for other government stuff, like unemployment insurance, and then the rest is for dental, long term disability, union dues ( 50 bucks a month for union dues) etc.

    Appreciate input! Thanks J.

    I think you've touched on a 'sin'sative subject here JMP. I noticed that alot of looked at your question, but no replies...I know that alot of nurses don't really want others to know what they are 'bringing home'.....especially if they are doing the same job, at the same place and not getting the same pay. If I had medical,dental and dues taken out of my check.....I'de owe my employer!!

    Let's just say that none of us really earn what we are worth!!

    I gross about 50K a year (Canadian dollars people!). We probably pay about the same in taxes being that you're from Ontario (I am in BC), but I don't really pay attention to the exact number, because I work casual, so week to week varies too much.
