This week celebrates National Payroll Week, a week that puts significance on “an honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay.”
The following comes from NationalPayrollWeek.com
According to nationalpayrollweek.com, this is a special week celebrating the economic, cultural, and social achievements of employees across America.
Founded in 1996 by the American Payroll Association, National Payroll Week puts focus on the partnerships between America’s employees, the payroll professionals who pay them, and the government programs and agencies that our payroll system funds.
NPW coincides with the week of Labor Day and highlights the achievements and symbiotic partnerships between America’s employees, payroll professionals, and various government programs and agencies.
The APA, its local chapters, and others in the payroll industry use the week as a platform to spread awareness of the payroll withholding system, to host community service projects, and to educate others on how paychecks are calculated and how to get the most out of their pay.
The official slogan for NPW is “America Works Because We’re Working for America.®”
The money that payroll professionals collect from employees’ paychecks through the payroll withholding system is vital to the funding of important government programs that keep America working smoothly such as Medicare, the building of federal highways, social security, the U.S. military, and much more.
Each year the APA and its members seek the support of NPW from various national, regional, and local government agencies and officials.
Every year, the campaign receives numerous government proclamations and letters of support from Governors, members of Congress, and more.
Money Matters National Education Day empowers payroll professionals to educate the upcoming generations of employees on paycheck basics.
Each year, hundreds of volunteers sign-up to teach financial literacy to the future employees of America. Volunteers teach MMNED lessons in local schools, to area youth organizations, church groups, and more.
