    It wiill be one or the other. Would the higher wages not be tax deductible for you? As a business expense?

    Look, I understand your need to make a profit and to do that you have to keep costs down.

    But most workers would rather make a decent wage and not have to rely on government  assistance as a supplement to low wages to keep from starving. For their dignity and sense of self-worth.

    Those un-skilled workers count too. Seriously, try flipping a house without them some time.
