int regularHours = 40;
int overtimeHours;
double hourlyRate;
double grossPay;
double netPay;
double fedTax;
double stateTax;
double ssTax;

Scanner keyboard = new Scanner (System.in);

NumberFormat currencyFormat = NumberFormat.getCurrencyInstance();
NumberFormat percentFormat = NumberFormat.getPercentInstance();

System.out.print ("Enter the number of regular hours worked: ");
regularHours = keyboard.nextInt();


System.out.print ("Enter the number of overtime hours worked: ");
overtimeHours = keyboard.nextInt();

System.out.print ("Enter the hourly rate: ");
hourlyRate = keyboard.nextDouble();

grossPay = (regularHours * hourlyRate) + (overtimeHours * (hourlyRate * 1.5));
fedTax = grossPay * FED_TAX_RATE;
stateTax = grossPay * STATE_TAX_RATE;
ssTax = grossPay * SOC_SEC_TAX_RATE;
netPay = grossPay - (fedTax + stateTax + ssTax);

System.out.println ("\nPay Stub:");
System.out.println (" Hours worked: " + (regularHours + overtimeHours));
System.out.println (" Hourly rate: " + currencyFormat.format(hourlyRate));
System.out.println (" Gross pay: " + currencyFormat.format(grossPay));

System.out.println (" Federal tax: " + currencyFormat.format(fedTax)
+ " @ " + percentFormat.format(FED_TAX_RATE));

System.out.println (" State tax: " + currencyFormat.format(stateTax)
+ " @ " + percentFormat.format(STATE_TAX_RATE));

System.out.println (" Soc Sec tax: " + currencyFormat.format(ssTax)
+ " @ " + percentFormat.format(SOC_SEC_TAX_RATE));

System.out.println (" Net pay: " + currencyFormat.format(netPay));
System.out.println ();
}
