Who needs a pay stub

Toronto

— Almost half (45 per cent) of all working Canadians never bother to check their paycheques, according to a poll for ADP conducted by Environics Research Group. More than one-third (35 per cent) file away their pay stubs without really reading them, and one in 10 trash them without a look. “The poll reveals that many of us would probably notice a price change at Tim Horton’s before we’d detect an anomaly on our paycheque,” said Rod Dobson, president of ADP Canada.
