We have state level income tax now, due to having to have some redundancies to get all 13 colonies on board. So adding a value-added tax would simply shift more burden of taxation onto consumers, and not make us more competitive in the world, which is over-rated and over-stated (Globalism is about only 18% of our economy).
Canada can get away with PST/GST since they have a smaller population, and it pays for lots of stuff we have to purchase separately, down in these parts. But even then, Canada would do better to rely more on progressive taxation, and not taxing consumption, which is regressive.
Hours.. time... life. All life is precious. Time is precious.. the most precious. If one is willing to give of their lives over to the direction and control of another, that person should be paid a "living" wage..
Work.. body... energy... food... health... Unlike time which we are given an unknown quantity of, we must invest in food, health and body to produce work. We should not be paid less than it takes to keep the human machine in good condition.
The opportunity is the interview. Once you have the job and do the work, invest part of you time of life and wear and tear on your body, you should NOT be waiting for an opportunity. Who works with no effort? Did you just grab a random FOX talking point to up your post count... or did you not follow what was being said?
