I was shocked to notice that I've been paid £156 less this month. Is this because of the higher tax and increased NI ? Can't check my pay-slip until next week. I didn't notice last month as I'd earned a bit extra doing 1:1 tuition. I've checked and this is the lowest pay packet I've had in over 2 years! Just had to shell out £150 at the dentist too.............not happy bunny! Seems to me we are having to work harder for less..less..less!
