If you have multiple jobs with the same earnings code but different pay rates, the earnings code appears on the pay stub with one line per pay rate. For example, if you work three jobs that all pay REG earnings, but each job is a different pay rate, three lines will appear on the pay stub in the earnings section. However, if you work three jobs that all pay REG earnings at the same pay rate, only one line appears in the earnings section with all hours on that one line.
