I get to keep 57%
That's 43% that someone else gets. Yarrggghhh!!
By making the "benefits" optional you could reduce the pay necessary to government employees by a significant chunk.
An employee with costs of $20K/year needs to be paid $40K. You could change that to $30K by handling the benefits better. (My numbers are completely made up)
As an appetizer, the shark is served in small cubes that have the look and texture of mozzarella cheese. The taste is indescribable, but might be compared to motor oil
I would say it is more like window cleaner ... but otherwise accurate.
Interestingly, we did rent a house for a while (happy renters, but stilll part of the urban sprawl)
The border agent implied it was because she doesn't like pate because "Foie gras" is unethical. When I told her it wasn't Foie Gras, she informed me it was made in France. When I pointed out the label said "product of the UK", she pointed to the picture on the label and said it might be wild. When I pointed out that species is commonly farmed, she said she didn't know why, she doesn't make the rules, and it is my responsibility to determine what I'm allowed to import or not... there's a website for that.
Take my $10 pot of pheasant pate... I give up.

A trend I have seen in my own industry.
2009: Basic personal amount claim $10,320
2014: Basic personal amount claim $11,138
2015: 15% on the first $44,701 of taxable income
The Wife and I are discussing Minimum Wage proposals and commenting on the fact that even if new minimum wage laws are introduced, the government isn't going to move the tax brackets to accommodate the new minimum wage: they are going to get most of the extra money people earn...
I scoffed at the word "most", and was shocked to find that the federal and provincial governments do not list a "basic personal amount" for this year.
Is that just not decided yet?
What compensation range are you looking for? Our philosophy is to look for the right person/fit and then discuss compensation as there is room to negotiate for the right candidate
The Wife talked me out of:
My expectations are certainly lenient, especially for the right position. I am simply wondering if there is sufficient room for negotiation.
When did employers stop posting their salary ranges?
What I think it is important to avoid is drawn out discussions when the range I would accept and the range they will pay have no overlap.
I was about to write out a proof explaining that there is a time for negotiating, and a point you are just wasting time.... but that sounds like a waste of time.
