So my private school had a meeting today and we all voted on how we wanted our paychecks to be dispersed. I voted no change since I was satisfied with the current distribution method (semi-monthly). Well, a simple majority of my colleagues decided to vote the opposite and so now the payroll is switching from semi-monthly paychecks to biweekly paychecks... NOTE: The admin want teachers to be happy and so we frequently vote on things collectively before changes are made schoolwide. In instances such as these, it’s majority rules. Personally speaking, I’d rather get paid once a month all up front, but that wasn’t an option. FYI, I make $62,000/year at the moment. Why would anyone prefer $2384.62 twice a month (or $4,769.23 a month) and then $7,135.85 for March and August, when you could just make $2,583.33 twice a month (or $5,166.66 a month)? I’m now making about $400 less a month for 10 months in the year!!! Apparently, they’d rather have three paychecks for two months a year and diminished paychecks throughout the rest of the year. That just seems silly to me. Frankly speaking, I’m pissed.
