    Besides the fact that you still haven't answered my question?

    I'm not going to either.

    I have no interest in trying to change the opinion of someone who's opinion is not subject to change. Instead, I use them to demonstrate to others how such intransigence leads people either ignore or dismiss the facts

    Btw... you responded EXACTLY as I thought you would.

    Other than payroll taxes there is no reason for taxes to come out of your paycheck if you are minimum wage and properly fill out your W-4( I think that is the form).

    I'm pretty sure that payroll taxes are taxes.

    That's true. Federal and state taxes come out.

    Some people (those who want to label social security and medicare entitlements) call these taxes, I call them forced retirement (and disability) funding.

    That's a fair point. Let's see what Pew has to say:

    ...Perhaps surprisingly, not very many people earn minimum wage, and they make up a smaller share of the workforce than they used to. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, last year 1.566 million hourly workers earned the federal minimum of $7.25 an hour; nearly two million more earned less than that because they fell under one of several exemptions (tipped employees, full-time students, certain disabled workers and others), for a total of 3.55 million hourly workers at or below the federal minimum.

    That group represents 4.7% of the nationís 75.3 million hourly-paid workers and 2.8% of all workers. In 1979, when the BLS began regularly studying minimum-wage workers, they represented 13.4% of hourly workers and 7.9% of all wage and salary workers. ...

    Disproportionately young: 50.6% are ages 16 to 24; 24% are teenagers (ages 16 to 19).
    Mostly (78%) white; fully half are white women.
    Largely part-time workers (64% of the total)....
    Yup. That looks pretty solidly second-and-third-job correlated, with relatively small trying-to-raise-a-family-on-a-single-income going on.



    You are still wrong. For many of those people, there are *no* programs to help them pay for all of the things that were mentioned.
    On the contrary - I am still correct. There are a slew of things to help our poor, frankly, it's idiotic how much we are spending on administration.

    your payroll taxes are more than refunded when you get your check at the end of the year, if you are that low income. As a junior enlisted member of the military, I think there was only two years in which I paid net taxes out of 8. One of those was because of my reenlistment bonus, and the other was because I was foolish enough to invest in American businesses and make a return, for which I must be punished.
