If they advertised jobs with incomes stated after tax, I dont think anyone
would object..

The Problem Bjorn, is that to pay someone at a level to offset taxes, would
place that wage into cost prohibitiveness.

There is that.

I think the unemployment rates over there are higher, and where does the burden
fall?

RC>> Govt sponsored enterprises over here are broke and broken..

BF> And the reason for that is? Jeezzz, Ross, I really thought more
