  • Paul Thomas keeps asking me to repet the question, instead of answering it.

    > What question?

    You know the question Paul. Here it is again:

    Of all the factors to be considered in deciding whether or not to take a
    promotion, or change jobs, or work OT, money is an important one. Therefore, in
    terms of considering the financial factor, should the person use the net amount
    (i.e., the amount which will actually make a lifestyle difference), or should
    they use the gross amount (i.e., much of which will make no difference at all)?

    Again, says you.

    As I have consistently stated, "there ARE lots of other considerations.
    Sometimes just one, sometimes many. But in each individual case, it
    differs. Hence, LOTS of other considerations, each set by the person who
    decides.

    Therefore, in terms of considering the financial factor,

    Discussing the financial factor, there may be additional costs involved
    (real hard out-of-pocket costs) that are going to be different between
    people, so much so that any generalization as to the importance of any one
    financial factor is foolish. That is why I have consistently said that each
    person should decide on their own what values they place on things.

    A company that may be offering "free child care" is of no value to a person
    with no children in need of childcare. While another person who is in dire
    need of child care may place a huge value (greater than the actual costs to
    the company) on such a benefit. Which benefit by the way, would conceivably
    not impact the gross or net.

        Says virtaully everyone.

        And money is seldom important, is that your position?

            Each person decides on their own what factors they want to use, and what
            values they place on those factors, in making a decision.

                But as we know, and which explains why you snipped everything, that's not what
                I'm asking you. No matter what value any person places on any amount of types
                of factors in making such a decision, which amount should they consider on the
                revenue side......the gross amount of any change in pay, or the net amount?
