But employers sure as hell demand the government dictate the minimum wage stay at 14.40 an hour and the general wages/salary levels be kept as low as possible dont they.
Businesses also do all they can to avoid paying tax, and get a lot more tax rebates and handouts from the government and tax payer than their employees do.
Aren't those Employers all really decent folks after all - the current minimum wage is $13.75!
Some would say it is a citizen's (both personal and corporate) legal responsibility to pay taxes that are due and these taxes should not be evaded. Conversely every citizen has a moral responsibility to use the legislative framework to reduce their tax obligations and thus avoid overpayment of taxes due.
Tax is a simple issue and some fail to see that things like Lotto is just another tax on the poor which they choose to pay. It’s a regressive tax because those that can least afford it pay the most. Its also a tax on the stupid who don’t understand probability and fail to see the wealth redistribution that comes from a lotto purchase. But some will argue everyone has the right to dream, in much they same way as many dream to own their own business. Any thoughts on where some of your $18.40 is likely to be spent?
