Or wait, better than this. I don't get why a teacher in Ontario earns twice as much as a teacher in Quebec.
Teachers go into the profession knowing what the job pays. The teachers I know love their work and they also LOVE all the time off which was a big factor in choosing that career path. That along with the generous government benefits makes up for less pay. It's not always all about the money.I'm not asking a higher wage. I'm saying I'm glad that the money I earn is redistributed to some extent. Because I don't get why I - as an engineer - make two times more money than that hardworking teacher educating the kids, for instance.
I earn it, so does that teacher, yet that teacher is getting half of what I'm getting.
Exactly!It's not always all about the money.
This is the second time in this thread you've criticized people for being illiterate/uneducated while simultaneously making spelling and grammatical mistakes.Oh yes, we desperately need teachers to maintain their jobs producing illiterat, entitled victims who can hold out their hands for government handouts collected from all those people James criticizes, but actually make money that gets put into the system, teachers just tent to recycle government dollars. James, teachers make all their money off the backs of taxpayers...like all public employees.
I realize you're concerned about paying more tax, yourself. But I see it differently than what you describe. I would extend this same advice to the ultra-rich themselves: make some concessions now, before it's too late.Since I can't sleep another concern I have with taxing the wealthy is how wealthy is defined and will there be a trickle down effect where tax rates are eventually raised at lower rates as well.
What's the beef with low corporate tax rates? If you raise corp taxes they just raise prices for products and services. That means they become even more unafordable for the lowest paid. Raising corp taxes is just a way to get consumers to pay the taxes via higher prices.Consider what happens if you don't correct these imbalances. By that I mean, if we continue with extremely low corporate tax rates
When the rich get richer the poor also get richer. Look at that graph....everyone improved. Your comment was that it wasn't proportional. My point it that it's better for everyone at the bottom to improve than for it to be perfectly proportional.Not sure what you are talking about. Majority suffering? how so?
I'd add this table fund in the same source provided by @PlutoWhen the rich get richer the poor also get richer. Look at that graph....everyone improved. Your comment was that it wasn't proportional.
