You are paid a modest retainer of $325 to be on call for one week each month. Your hourly pay rate is $18. You are scheduled to work 38 hours the week you are on retainer. Your employer is required to deduct a total of 22% from your pay.
a) What do you expect to earn in your gross weekly pay?
b) What is your net weekly pay?

a) Multiply 18 by 38 and add 325.
Multiply the gross pay by 0.22 to find the tax. Subtract from gross pay to find the net pay.
