    There's a kid in customer service who takes home about $1,200 twice a month. I guess he owes the State $1,400 so they've put a garnishment of $300 per pay period on his wages. This poor kid is barely above the poverty line and the State wants to rape him over a few bucks. I thought all of those faggot liberals in Sacramento were looking out for the little guy. @freds , discuss. Isn't 21% of his take home pay a little excessive?

    Boo fucking Hoo. There is a reason why the state had to garnish his wages. So the fucker has to eat ramen for a month and a half. He should have made arrangements before the state had to start garnishing his paycheck.

    California is on a witch hunt. I get notices for employees every week for one thing or another. Car registration, parking tickets, any fucking thing. It's ridiculous and an abuse of power. It's to the point that people who have moved from California have had their bank accounts frozen because when the State didn't receive an income tax return or withholdings they assumed that person should have paid taxes and estimated what they probably would have owed. :nojj:

    You see, these are things that you are supposed to pay right away. If you don't you will get notices. If more people would take responsibility then the state wouldn't have to take action. I do think however, the part about the state freezing accounts after the people moved out of state is bullshit.

    I agree that the kid should have paid the shit. It just pisses me off that the socialists talk about how bad corporations screw over their employees while at the same time the government consistently anally rapes anyone who isn't on welfare.

    i pay my taxes on time. if i had child support, i'd pay it on time. every debt or monthly bill i owe, i pay on time.
    my credit score is 854 or some ridiculous number.


    i wish the state had taken all his money. why should the rest of us subsidize you deadbeats? :fil:

    First job out of college was running payroll and benefits for this big hotel. Employees were ALWAYS getting garnishments and they'd think I was a dick for not ignoring them. :facepalm:

    But what about the little guy who only makes $19 per hour? Have you no heart? Have you no compassion? What's next, you're going to come out against the minimum wage being raised to $15 because those losers should just get a better job?
