He begins by saying, "There's a couple of things you wanna know, one, union members with UPS are paid weekly. So these numbers are gonna reflected in weekly paychecks."

He then goes on to say, "The second thing that I want to talk about this pay slab is that I don't wanna mention it in any ill-mannered way. I simply love when I come across content creators, who share their pay slabs in their different working fields and the transparency of how their wages are broken down." He then goes on to show, that for a week his total earnings are $2,004, which becomes $1,313, after deductions.
