Fill 'er up

Today is payday where I work. Due to the Christmas holidays, our last payday was December 22. That means it hasn't "rained" in 40 days and 40 nights. The holiday credit card bills have come and gone since then. And so, as of yesterday, at our house we were officially running on fumes.

Remember three years ago, when the Oregon Legislature scheduled a vote on a tax increase for January 27? That was one of their better ones. Good times.

ORS 652.120 Establishing regular payday; pay intervals; agreement to pay wages at future date.

(1) Every employer shall establish and maintain a regular payday, at which date all employees shall be paid the wages due and owing to them.

(2) Payday shall not extend beyond a period of 35 days from the time that such employees entered upon their work, or from the date of the last regular payday.

Now there's one I never heard of.

Actually, the alternative for us would be to get paid for December on the 31st. A hassle for the employer -- and I'd rather get that money a week or so early, so that I can blow it on wine!

Dec 22?

Holy cow, I really like weekly paychecks...
