Interesting looking job... I predict that we will see many new uses of DRM in the near future, such as mandatory access controls with a level of granularity and robustness never before seen in the COTS world.

I wonder if this company is bright enough to see that as well.

Hmmm about the same as here I suppose, maybe a little more.

My take home pay is about 73% of my gross salary (after national insurance, tax and superannuation).

What would be a similar figure for the US? (including health insurance over there I suppose)?

Sorry this is lazy research by me.

Not sure... depend on your income level... my take home without creative accounting would be about 51%. Then from that comes health insurance and retirement (cause god knows our social security program ain't gonna pay me a dime).

Having a bloated, runaway military ain't cheap ya know, yet somehow we are still able to manage an eight trillion dollar debt... USA! USA! USA!

hmmm, suppose in OZ things are not as bad as I thought?..
20% taken by the Tax.
If you a supporting parent:
29% goes in Child support (watch out if you have more than 2 children)
3% to superannuation (Gov prefers we support to 9%)
15 to 30% on mortage.

It can be quite as bad here, I get hit with 40% tax on everything over the threshold... it's only 21% (i think) on any earnings under the threshold.. I think the threshold is either £40K or £30K per year

National Insurance is around 16% (I think)

Then there is council tax, which is around £130 per month for an avarage 3 bedroom house, which you have to pay after you have been paid and already payed your income tax and national insurance.

Some months I have paid over £2000 in tax, NI and council tax alone.....that's before all the freaking bills come out!

Sometimes it hardly seems worth going to work..... If only it was possible to set my own country up.... :D

" If only it was possible to set my own country up...." as a dependent
MAny a time I considered dropping out.. at my previous job, had a single mother, of 3, come into work one day, she was complaining how hard it was to survive on such a low income, and how the store discounts should be better to help people in her difficult position..

Her income?

$900/week NET.. with subsidised housing (in her case it would have been an extra $100/wk or 60% of the rent)

4 staff in ear shot, choked on hearing the figure.. none were on an income of better than $700 GROSS/wk
.. The trouble with life is there's no background music..

I wasn't counting Council tax, I was just thinking of that as a bill.

Add on that plus utilities then I guess 50% would be about right then add a car and fuel duty of 80%+ 17.5% VAT. And Road tax, MOT+Vat, parking.

Getting angry now

I guess they have to fund their 'self voted' 35% pay rise somehow.........
