Obviously, from the title of this post I'm paid monthly. I Hate it with a capital H. It's so hard sometimes! I used to be paid weekly, and it was great because I set aside a specific amount per week for rent, and set it aside in a second bank account I had. Come rent time I wrote a check and didn't have to worry. I paid bills as they came in and was never stretched too badly. Now I pay my bills on payday and cringe to see what's left some months. Maybe some will think I'm exaggerating, but I think it should be against the law to get paid every 30 days, especially those like me that make under 30K! (actually, in RI it was illegal for hourly employees to be paid any less than weekly.) Who feels my pain?
