According to my paystub, my “base rate” is $3265.83 per month. I never actually *make* this much money, of course, cause I usually don’t bother coming in 40 hours a week, and taxes are harsh (hey, I’m used to taxes in Fairbanks, Alaska – i.e. the government pays *you*), and they automatically take out 3% and put it into my 401(K) plan.
Where, exactly, does all this money go?
Truly one of the great questions of the universe.
