Democrats: dedicated to keeping the poor in their place

We just got a postcard from the IRS at work. It basically is informing employers that if average wages are less than $50k per year, the company can get medical insurance subsidies.

Pretty freaking outrageous.

However, government workers are enjoying a boom in hiring and generous salary increases thanks in large part to very cushy pensions and other benefits.

The pay differential between public sector employees and the private sector shows a troubling trend. Government workers have benefited greatly, even during the severe recession, and their wages now outpace the employee compensation in private industry.
Sure as hell not in the government for which Bob Dole works (state of Texas). The salaries at Bob Dole's agency, even when you add in the benefits, are significantly lower than market rate across the board.

I heard yesterday on the radio that due to a projected budget shortage they are thinking about going to a 4 day week or maybe even unpaid furloughs for state employees. And this is supposed to be one of the strongest states economically!

So in this thread Taco John gave a real life example of how idiotic government policies directly influenced a decision he made regarding how much to pay someone, and Orange, who knows nothing about Taco John or his company, insists that the decision was not made in that manner.

It's pretty clear that Orange has never hired anyone.

These types of decisions are made every day. I know that whenever I hire anyone I have a great of latitude regarding what I offer as a starting salary. The decision is based upon a lot of things, including education, experience, and how badly I think I'll want to retain that employee in the future.

This is what happens when you get guys like our current President with no practical experience, and you put them in charge of making policy. They think they know everything, when in fact they don't know what the hell they are talking about.

Yes, I have. I managed a store and you're an idiot. Spelled correctly because it's the truth.


But since you're such an expert on hiring, answer this question that TJ never could, Mr. Rockefeller:

p.s. I hope your decision-making isn't as bad as your reading comprehension. Tell me EXACTLY what Taco John's "real life decision influenced by idiotic government policies" was.

Stay below 25 workers. Keep their average below $50k. Keep all the profits to yourself. Democrat economics!
Then bitch about business owners "hoarding" profits and that's why it is necessary to raise the tax rate.

But since you're such an expert on hiring, answer this question that TJ never could, Mr. Rockefeller:

I could answer that question easy, but you wouldn't accept the answer - you said "it was in the budget" doesn't cut it. But that's the simple answer. My boss gave me budget, and I didn't play any games with it. I didn't care to wrangle. I just offered the amount and the person accepted it.

Now this being said, you may have had a point if the savings from any negotiation that I did was retained in my department. I would have been incentivized to low ball the guy and use the extra dollars for other projects. But I wasn't going to see that extra money.

OK, so you HAVE hired someone.

That makes your bluster about Taco John's hiring decision that much worse.
