Oops, my mistake
As for road concerns, I'm pretty sure the gasoline tax covers ALL of those things you mention. The "tax on business," paid by people, not businesses, I THINK, is used for other things.
Apparently you missed the phrase "operational infrastructure" in my reply. I don't believe the gas tax covers water, sewer, street lighting, snow removal, police and fire services.
Help me out here, please, did the company pay those bonuses?
As the suit was filed a few months ago, I don't believe it has even made it to court yet.
I overlooked that stuff in your post about operational infrastructure.
I missed that when I was noting your error (I think) in your suggesting that business taxes covers roads and bridges.
The stuff you call operational infrastructure is covered, locally I think, by property taxes isn't it? It might be worth a letter to one of our "representatives" to find how how that operational infrastructure is funded so we can better debate this. I'll get back to you on that.
By the way I want to reiterate my point that businesses don't pay taxes; people pay taxes, ONLY people pay taxes, ALL taxes are paid by people. (Businesses just pass on their operational costs, including taxes, to consumers.)
I don't understand your point, "But, of course, it's the union wages and the corporate tax that's always to blame, not the bonuses of management, which is lame."
That suit hasn't cost the company anything yet. Well maybe they've incurred some expense in lawyers' fees? In fact, the company seems to be interested in stiffing the managers like the government stiffs the taxpayers. Interesting that those management people need to sue the company to get the bonuses you say were promised but the company just takes money gifted to it by government- money taken from taxpayers. Where do the taxpayers of FDL County file their suit?
