It's unbelievable, but higher taxes on work are coming to most states in the Union.
The median increase will be 27.5%. And employers in places such as Hawaii and Florida could see levies skyrocket more than ten-fold.
If anyone wants an easy bipartisan job-creating legislative idea, top of the list is to give states the flexibility to modify the Unemployment Insurance (UI)I system. A smart policy would let states opt out entirely, given that UI is proven to prolong joblessness. There are alternative approaches, but they will be left untested so long as one-size-fits central planning from Washington continues (as it has for decades). Or did I hear that everything is on the table?
