Update May 14, 2009 – My subsequent paycheck reflected a more modest increase of around $15.00. By the way, I took my daughter to Subway for dinner tonight and I had a few cents left over from the $15.00. I confess that we splurged and opted for the meal deals that cost an additional $2.25 each.
I never received any explanation of the larger bump that I discussed in my original post. The bottom line remains the same, however, all of this increase is not a tax cut as is being protrayed.
