So there was a discussion going on about pay. It was about machines taking over/self check out/ etc.... People were on there whining and bitching..... I can't survive on $8, they need to pay $15 an hour minimum.... blah/blah/blah.... So I said...I couldn't go to work for $8 or $15 an hour, what these people needed to do was to start their own business blah/blah/blah. I said, I couldn't go to a job unless I was making $100 an hour or more (I couldn't even go for $100 an hour, who am I fooling?).

So here is what someone told me...... dont forget with the higher wage you have, the more federal & state take out of your beefy pay check . Remember they want a peice of it. ;)

Yep, they are 100% correct, I better go to work at Burger King making $8 an hour so the government won't be getting over on me! :rofl: This is why some people will always be making my original chicken sandwich at Burger King. They trying to keep Uncle Sam down! :rofl:

The 1st lady I tried selling my original cleaning business too thought exactly this same way. She went back to telemarketing so she could make a steady income and not be wondering how much she was going to be making every month. After investing, putting money back in to the business and everything else, I paid myself a HEALTHY chunk each month but she couldn't put her head around that..... her steady income as a telemarketer..... $12.87 an hour!:inpain: I really was floored and actually couldn't believe it when she told me.

Pretty saddening to live your life every day, trying to escape the government.
(even thought you didn't commit a crime)

They all ask for a job.
No one asks how to run a business.

It's all mindset and what they've been told. The script.

Don’t you know? You actually make LESS money the higher your tax bracket!

Better watch out for those raises!
