WOW! Listen BIG DUMMY - I didn't say it STOPPED child support. Learn to read and comprehend before engaging in anymore discussions on topix. I would make a remark about your public school education, but I am not so sure you attended public school. I would think most products of the public school system would be familiar with the child support system and how it operates since most of them come from sheety situations. Maybe you're just one of the lucky ones who came from a decent home or you're just plain dumb. BTW, you picked a good name for yourself, BIG DUMMY <and cue the applause>.
Some "fathers" aka "sperm donors" aka "dead beat dads" work off the books and get paid in ca$h so their wages can't be garnished by a court order. Their court ordered support continues to accrue and they end up in arrears. Wake up smell the coffee, look around and see what is going on in the world not just what goes on in front of your nose.
P.S. I work at the court house.
P.S what does you working at the COURTHOUSE have to do with sh^TTY BUSINESS OWNERS WHO BEND THE RULES OR BREAK THEM, SO YOU CONDONE THAT......

Did I hit a nerve or what? Why is that?Have you had your wages garnished? It is my prerogative as to whether or not I care to respond to an entire post or just part of it. My coworkers, some of whom have attended and have kids who attend public schools, know my views and opinion of the public school system. We have had discussions about it. I didn't say all public school attendees came from sheety situations, just most. Let me clarify - I am talking City of Erie public schools. I didn't specify what area of the court house I am located in. I don't have first hand knowledge of ALL the goings on at the courthouse, nor do I claim to. Some of the things I know pertaining to certain situations are from what I read in the media and what other people at the courthouse think they know. I can't comment as I don't have first hand knowledge of some of that. Do I have my own opinion of some of the things that go on? Absolutely, just like rectums, we all have opinions. Please Note: I am aware who the monicker BIG DUMMY was referring to, I was being facetious by turning it around and adding the applause comment. It's only a discussion forum where people are free to exchange thoughts, ideas, and opinions regardless of what they are. So, report me for exercising my first amendment right, freedom of speech. Now carefully remove the stick from your derrire and take your blood pressure meds before you stroke yourself out. Good day sir or madam!

Come, you got the cajones to post who the offender is? Just turn him in to wage & hour. I have several guesses on who it could be. Just another spineless lawbreaker that doesn't have the guts to do things legitimately.

I learned to weld in a public school, Twin-Tech. I make $30+ an hour at GE. How much do you make an hour sweet cakes? BTW no student loans to repay.

Son, if you are fresh out of high school let me give you some advice. First off, if you since trouble or wrong doings, you have nothing vested at all there, don't walk away, run. Don't get yourself involved with someone who seems crooked. Second you are young enough to find any other job that would be full time and have benefits. Did you get hurt, or are you wondering what if? And why are you concerned about unemployment? Listen don't get involved in that trap, find a decent job, do your best at whatever job you have, forget about unemployment or getting workman's comp, WORK for your money, earn it be proud of it and spend it! If either of the other happens, that would be unfortunate, but deal with it then.
Good luck! And don't be a lazy sob getting free money from the gov!

I have you beat hourly, but you have me beat with the school loans. Nothing but respect for a skilled labor.

Well thank you for your info and not bashing me without reading everything I wrote. I did not get hurt but was told that I should file paperwork for something or at the least be told about it, like who to go talk to in a event happened. About unemployment, I thought if I worked all summer then I would get paid during the winter if I was not snow blowing or plowing. I guess I was mis-informed about some things, and things do sound shady. I literally have only been working a couple months in my life , so am not in the know-so to speak. Thank you again have a good night.

He can pay you cash. You may be considered a subcontractor and are supposed to pay your own taxes like you are self employed.
if the guy drops a 1099 on you at the end of the year, you will have to file and possibly pay income taxes if over a certain amount was earned
You may also be responsible for yourself if hurt working.
There are a whole different set of laws on this stuff, especially with unemployment. It is probably best to stay away from "cash under the table" type jobs unless that is what you want or all you can get.
If you continue to work for cash you may want to stick away a certain percentage in-case you make enough you have to pay taxes. You may think cash is all hidden or unreportable but there is that pesky 1099 thing. You may want to talk to tax person about this stuff beforehand if you are going to continue to work for cash.

Beware, if the IRS thinks you owe taxes for anything, they are total a-holes to deal with. They will penalize and fine you and it is all but impossible to get out of paying, either the penalties and fines, for a tax guy to handle it or both.

Welcome to the real world.

You need to be disciplined enough to put away that percentage of taxes you will owe on those 1099s.

Thank you for that info also. I think it is time to find a different line of work. I got the job right out of high school and thought it was a cool job getting paid every day or 2 in cash. But I really do not like all the bad stuff I have been reading on here from some of you. I do not believe you have any reason to not tell me the truth or mess with me. So thank you all. The more I read and then go to work and ask questions and the lack of answers from my boss, is making this job sound more and more shady every week I work. And I really think this guy is getting over big time, I do not think he claims any money and pockets all of it all summer. And gets benefits and other stuff from his other job he works, which is a 3-11 type job. So we cut grass all day then he goes to his real job. I do not want to get caught up in something shady and be blamed also. Thanks you topix poster for the input
