    Default Tax increases hitting your pay packet

    A gang of us got our monthly payslip today. We had been speculating how much we'd be down. As they were opened different people were down various amounts and calling them out. I stared at mine and calculated I was down over €400. I was asked how much I was down, and I said 2. Is that all?, someone asked. Oh, i mean 4, I said.

    I was thinking of the amount of hours punting I was down!!!

    Just aswell I didn't say 2 hours :-)

    Something is going to have to give. I'm definitely cutting back on envelopes and thank you cards!!

    And maybe food, and who needs TV and electricity. Bleedin luxuries.

    Goodness, that didn't feel good at all , sorry to hear that.

    I am sick of this bloody recession ...
    I'd like to see people happy again, going on lots of shopping sprees and holidays.
    I am aware part of this got us into the credit crunch, but what the heck ... better in debt then counting pennies.

    I get paid at the end of the month, and am dreading the damage. As for cutting down punting? I think like you - I'll just stop eating, drinking (water that is), and who needs heating anyway. Maybe I could sell a kidney? Thats sure to give me at least 10 punting hours!

    I said this before and as an employer I was embarassed paying wages, especially the lower paid.
    But truthfully I can't cover their loss as it's just not there.

    As someone said, sometime, if you want to make a small fortune in this country,
    start with a large one

    To take it back to the impact on 'punting' ( such a non-glamorous word for something so beautiful ), any hit on your nett income is going to hit your social life before you start wearing woolly jumpers, scarves and hats in your own home, and for me it probably means I'm going to fix my monthly budget for seeing escorts. Don't worry ladies, it will still be significant, but it probably means I'll stick to my favourite lady and one or two safe bets based on reviews, and am therefore less likely to have an impromptu visit to someone new, just because I'm in the area, the pic looks hot, and I've got €200 burning a hole in my pocket.

    So if I'm any gauge of the punting population, I don't think the tax increases will affect the more established escorts, but might make things very difficult for new girls trying to establish themselves.

    As a fellow employer, we didn't lower any wages. We paid less wage and more traveling expenses, I don't know exactly I have nothing to do with wages. Thank god.

    This is great...
    In some countries you get vouchers you can spend on food and they are taxed different or there is no tax. everybody needs to eat after all.
    Does such a thing exsist in Ireland?
