I realize this is a very unpopular view, but I'm sick of watching my taxes go up while others have a free ride.

Tell that to employers paying peanuts putting people on welfare! Have you checked inflation rates?

Employers pay peanuts to people who have no skills, no work experience, no track record.

How's a high school kid have experience? We know some folks in Miami with plenty of experience who were offered an extra zero in California for doing the same exact job?!

An extra zero? What does that mean, that they are being paid an annual salary of $250,000.00 instead of $25,000.00? Or are we talking hourly salary - $150.00/hour instead of $15.00/hour?

My daughter lives in San Diego. She pays more for a 1BR apartment than I do each month for a 5BR house. Then you have the taxes.... State income tax is as follows:

Tax Bracket (Single) Marginal Tax Rate
$0+ 1.00%
$7,124+ 2.00%
$16,890+ 4.00%
$26,657+ 6.00%
$37,005+ 8.00%
$46,766+ 9.30%
$1,000,000+ 10.30%

Tax Bracket (Couple) Marginal Tax Rate
$0+ 1.00%
$14,248+ 2.00%
$33,780+ 4.00%
$53,314+ 6.00%
$74,010+ 8.00%
$93,532+ 9.30%
$2,000,000+ 10.30%

Then you have things like gas prices - when I was out there in July it was $4.29/gallon. People were happy that it come down, from what I understand.

Want to buy a house? It's just insane. 3BR, 2BA houses down the street from my daughter's apartment were $650k and up.

What kind of salaries to people need to be able to afford anything out there?
