    I always love this topic. Pay raise or better benefits?
    To start we need to look at why what we are getting paid and benefit plan isn't enough? I going to put my views out there.

    1.The BIGGEST reason you pay and benefits is lacking is TAXES and more TAXES.
    When you get elected officials in office that are tax and spend and don't control govt expenses you taxes go up.
    2. Govt regulations
    This is sooooo simple.
    I have a higher % of my paycheck left back in 2006 than I do now and I was making $6 to $7 buck less than I do now. Think about it yes cost go up but so did my pay.
    The problem is the govt regs are out of hand and drove the cost higher than my pay. Obozocare destroyed the healthcare system. A family was to see an avarge of $2,500 lower healthcare premiums. So XPO family did you see any savings? I sure didn't
    New EPA regs also drove up the operating cost of companies causing them to charge more for goods and serves.

    What good is $50/hr if a gallon of milk cost you $30

    and here a little clip from a show and it about wage

    Think about why the gov has not went with a 10 percent flat tax? All articles I have seen on thissays they would take in more$$ than now. The exception being,everyone,including all the big corps, and their phony hidden subsidiaries pay the same 10percent. Your paying close to 20 percent now. Just think. No more April tax forms, no more IRS, no estimating taxes, and you have more money to spend in this economy. But no one in DC wants to talk about doing that. Too many political groups would not get their grease money for lobbying..

    Yes a flat tax is great. That would mean everyone would pay and I mean everyone even the lazy asses on welfare. The flat tax would have no tax credits or deduction. I tired of paying more in taxes because I don't have kids its BS.
    The reason no Pres has introduce this flat tax is because no Pres what the lose of so many job on his hand. Think of all the companies that make there living on the current tax laws.

    Job loss within a government agency that probably has 20-30 percent too many employees already? I say cut em! They will find work, just like the rest of us would have to....

    Two ways. Election or application. Application has been the preferred choice of the many that have left already.

    How bout we just end the socialist/communist income tax and property tax on residential homes, and return to the capitalist system of tax on profit, tariffs on imports.

    Who is more important? The taxpayers of this country, or employees of probably professions like lawyers, and accountants, who will always have business? They have other sources of business income. Me. I am stuck as a truck driver, since I never did finish getting my law degree....
