Beware of what is termed 'socialising the cost'.
ie this is where bussiness sacks local workers and gives their jobs to cheaper overseas workers.
The company pays tax offshore and lowers its production costs so it makes more profit.
Trouble is WE pay the unemployment benifits thru higher taxes, WE get lower wages as there are more people looking for work.
Or if these new poor resort to crime or drugs the cost of fixing the problems is paid for by?
Novacain>Do you trust the stores not to rort the system? (ie charge too much and keep the rest)<
Sentaku senshi>Well PA alreay has a sales tax (and income tax). Anyways the tax would have to be recored on the recpet and if mutlible people have recipts that show a higher tax then that store would most likly face punishment.<
Just like our company directors who used over Au$10 million in company funds to buy more shares and prop up the price (as they owned a lot of shares as well so they were protecting thier investment)
They face a Au$22k fine.
See what I mean?
