Payroll Tax effecting Business

Do you think that the payroll tax effecting everyone working, will hurt business this new season.? Will people start cutting back on hiring landscapers ? I am nervous about this coming season.

If the gov takes out an extra $25 from each paycheck that should not effect things too much. Those that can afford a home will still afford lawncare.

Those that $25 will cause them to cancel lawnservice will have bigger fish to fry. Such as mortgage, heat, gas, food, medical, auto costs. These are people that may lose their homes.

I would not expect them to keep me on. Or feel bad that they had to drop me.

I hate when tax numbers are simplified, they did it with the obamacare penalty taxes, always trying to give the tax a fictitious average person would pay rather then just stating the %. And thats sort what just happened here its not 25 dollars its 2% if you make a grand then its 20 dollars if you make 2 grand your out 40. But it also scales down what if you make 500 a week now you out an extra 10 dollars. The bottom line is their is no such thing as journalism left in our country and they make little fluff pieces like this story to distract you. A gas spike followed but the every close food spike will hurt way more than the payroll tax gimmick.
