I am living in Finland with my husband but still my life is on a standstill as I cannot work, study, t...

Re: Finnish interpol refused to cover extradition cost

My salary was 2600e, after tax I got 1900e. But my sales commission is not my salary, it was reward for my effort to bring business to my ex-employer. Good to know. I will ask first thing in the morning our payroll to stop paying my salary and to grant me reward equal to my gross salary instead. No...
