    If the government would stop dipping into the working man's pocket, wages wouldn't be so low.

    The workforce is increasing? Someone should tell the Department of Labor they got it wrong.

    You know the chart goes back further than 2008, right?

    It would have to go back prior to 1979 to find a time when the workforce was smaller than it is today. So what's your point?

    Feel free to plot tax rates against those charts, I think you'd be surprised.

    Chop off the end of the chart at the year 2000 and tell me what you see.

    OK - what I see is a chart for percent of wages in the economy in a falling trend, with a bump up in the run up to 2007 which EXACTLY MIRRORS the falling trend in workforce participation which also had a slight bump up in the run up to 2007. This tells me that the level of workforce participation is directly related to the percentage of the economy wages play.

    What you see is a thirty year period where workforce trends upwards while wages trend downwards. If not for the intermittent recessions that crash wages along with workforce, you'd actually conclude that wages and workforce participation were inversely related.

    I never said anything about taxes. What makes you think taxes are the only way that the government can effect workers's wages?

    Just heard on the radio that state revenues also hit all time highs. So why are there all those cuts in spending and employee days and such?
