Garnishments (M.G.L. c. 246, s. 28)

An amount not exceeding the greater of 85 per cent of the debtor's gross wages or 50 times the Massachusetts hourly minimum wage (currently $12.75) for each week or portion thereof out of the wages then due to the defendant for labor performed or services render is exempt from garnishment. So the amount protected is $637.50 per week.
