I’m 22 years old, I just got a promotion at work and went from making $15/hour to $21/hour. The government has been garnishing my wages for about two months now for a student loan debt. Now that’s all fine all and dandy, but I just got my first paycheck today with my new pay. I worked 54 hours, and only brought home $730, so from a pre-taxed paycheck of $1,280, down to $730, they are taking are most 50%.
What can I do? I can’t continue to skate by like this for long.
