Recently, there has been some discussion on who has first claim on a wage earner’s money.
Money that is payment for a working person’s labor or creativity is subject to taxation, as anyone who works for a living knows. Those taxes are commonly called “income taxes,” but should be more properly called “labor taxes.”
So who gets the money first, you or government? Take a look at your paycheck stub next payday and you’ll find the answer.
When did it start?
