If you're earning between $60k and $72K a year, yes in wages and income taxes you're paying a minimum 28%

Compared to Mitt Romney earning $75 Million paying 14%

Just an example of wasting time and money when your manager hires someone with limited skills who is unmotivated to join your operations. If you think that casually about employees than the employee can not be of any importance that adds to your earnings, productivity and efficiency.

There's a cost in employee turn over, unless you're hiring illegal immigrants or individuals under the table.

NEW YORK (TheStreet)-- It's no secret that a bad hire can cast a dark cloud over any company, creating headaches for management and stress for everyone from HR to interns. Unfortunately, the problems don't end there: The monetary cost of a bad hire can exceed 30% of the person's annual salary, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, and 39% of hiring managers surveyed by staffing firm Robert Half said that a poor hire had cost them precious hours of productivity. Even if it's tempting to make a quick decision on hiring, if the person isn't a good fit, it could be a disaster.

Wasn't criticizing him, I uses his income and tax rate as a comparison to the average middle class working man. He pays 14% on $75 Million in income, and someone earning $75K pays 28%

If you were him, would you pay more than the tax laws require, just to make a few liberals happy? And then too, we don't know what he does with his money. He doesn't know what I do with my money, and that's the way it should be.

It's not Romney, but the inequality of the System. I don't count another man's earnings. But I can use it in comparison to determine what is right or what's wrong in the tax system.

Those with the funding can pay for lobbyist to fight their battles in having their tax liability reduced at the expense of my rates increasing to make up that difference.

America was founded on equal access and equal protection. This is the very issue that initiated Shay's Rebellion.

Last year, I know many people, including myself, pointed this out to you...but I'll do it again.
He was not employed. The profits, not wages, that he earned were taxed as capital gains, which was 15%.
Furthermore, a person earning $75K will only pay 28% if they have a really bad tax accountant and no deductions. Taxed at 28% rarely means paid in 28%.

Romney and other high earners benefits from the carried Interest loophole.......... a taxing scheme that reduces the tax liability of a general partner of an investment firm who profits from liquidating assets of their cartel.

Yep, GM opened their new factories in china, along with our jobs.
So Dumbo, it's cool in your eyes when South Korea opens Hyundai and Kia assembly plants in the US, but when the US does the same in another country to supply their people, it's wrong?

You really need to STFU already - every car manufacturer in the world opens assembly lines in other countries to supply that countries requirements for cars. It's been done for decades - you're just slinging shit because you've got nothing better to do.

GM in
China DOES NOT export cars to the US you dummy. Prove otherwise, or shut up.
