Task 2: How Much Money Do You earn?

Step 1: Learn how to read and understand a pay stub. It gives you a lot of important information. Print a copy of this Reading Pay Stubs page. Study the information in small groups and answer the questions. Then, as a class, share your answers and discuss what you learned.

Step 2: Print a copy of the personal budget worksheet. Each of you will work alone to figure out how much money you earn. Take it home with you so you can use your or your spouse's own pay stub to fill the "Income" section out.
