they really are. i make around 70 dollars a paycheck ( i know my job sucks) and 7 of it is taken out. i know u are all like "oh wow 7 dollars!!" but think about it. it adds up. when i make 700 dollars, thats 70. it adds up to alot.

You are getting hit with a 10% tax which is actually high for what you make. I make much more than that every week and don't get hit with that high of tax,but if you are in the US te state tax may be highr where you are. Most people are paying around 15% tax. If you make $700, you would be hit with the 15% tax. The amount of tax varies by what you make each paycheck. The ranges are pretty big though.
