    So, he is the formost expert and his comments are undisputed?

    Really ?

    Well seeing you are so good at math .. how about you come up with an answer


    We'll plug in numbers to make it easy $20 dollars an hour time and a half for over time .. total tax load of 50% (federal, SS, Medicare, and state taxes)

    What is his tax on 20 hours of over time ?? if I have it figured right it would be an additional $350 dollars .. . is that not equal to 10 hours of overtime pay ?

    So, if he says something you disagree with, he's still correct, right?
