That money belongs to the family member who spent over 40 hours from their family instead our unfair government increases his tax rate after 40 hours. I say he should be allowed to keep every dollar of it.

No, it only encourages the average workweek to become 60 hours. It should be more like 20 hours.

I don't know. I'd rather have more people working less hours, rather than fewer working more hours. If the laborer was making poverty wages, then by all means, taxation shouldn't be levied on any of the hours.

I'll get on board with that. However, OWS is aiming this at the wrong target. This should be aimed at the govt not the 1%.
