In one of the funnier moments in the film GoodFellas, Henry Hill (Ray Liotta) explains how Paulie, the local Mafia boss, “protects” a local business.

If the business owner has any problems with the operation of his business, he calls Paulie. And Paulie gets it done.

But if the business owner runs into problems that adversely affect cash flow, Paulie doesn’t care. In the immortal words of Henry Hill, Paulie says “Screw you, pay me.” (He uses another word, but I keep these emails family-friendly.)

National Payroll Week is September 7 -11 and celebrates employees and the payroll professionals who pay them. According to their website, through payroll withholding, 70% of the Treasury’s annual revenue (about $2.4 trillion) per year is collected, reported, and deposited.

That’s a lotta boxes of ziti!

The annual celebration was started in 1996 by the American Payroll Association and coincides with Labor Day, another celebration of the working American. When you think about it, our country is strong because we have strong people working. And that includes you.

We also celebrate the industrious individual. We believe you deserve to be rewarded for your hard work. You’ve invested years into building a good life for you and your family. We want to make sure those efforts aren’t wasted.
