I had to put this under Humor, Fun & Games...

I was indulging in one of my favorite guilty pleasures; insulting the trolls at Fox Nation, when I posted the following piece.

I got so much hate directed at me by the prog-trolls that I had to turn my A/C up.

 Let me share a little something with you progs...

I don't have any "in-house" employees. I meet all of my staffing needs by using a temp agency.

If I were hiring directly, I would pay these workers $15/hr. Withholding would bring that to $16.45, workers comp and some other items add a bit. Call it about $17.50/hr/employee.

The workers I get through the agency are paid $11/hr. The "factor" is "point-six" which is a sneaky way of saying that I'm getting charged 60% on top of that. Plus tax.

So I'm paying about the same amount for one Man-Hour of labor either way.

The employee on the other hand is losing $4/hr.

Assume a 40hr week with 5 hours of overtime (40 x 4) + (5 x 6) = $190/wk.

$190wk x 52 weeks = $9,880.

So even though it costs me the same amount of money either way, the employee essentially gets cheated out of about $10,000 a year.

Which begs the question...

Why would I do such an evil thing?

Taxes. Regulations. OBAMACARE.

Oh, plus... This way my ENTIRE labor cost is a deduction. Like leasing.

Hey, you're the  S U C K E R S  who wanted a big, intrusive government.

Well...  YOU GOT IT!
