A select me and i will see to it that you get the jobs you want a they Promise. Once they Are in office they sometimes play to the galleries making some show of sympathy toward the unemployed and then enact Laws that add to the problems. It seems to be their political philosophy that they can gain More favor with the voters by slugging those who furnish employment opportunities than by helping them employ More people. The recent Laws to again Speed up the payment of corporation taxes is a Good example. By draining the working capital of the corporations they make it impossible for them to hire More people and in some cases make it impossible for them to even keep on the payroll those they have working for them. Taxes must be paid in hard Cash. The Busy corporation usually has most of its assets invested in materials from which to make things inventories of completed goods and goods in process. Cut Down their Cash and they must Cut Down their inventories and this throws people out of work All along the line. First step in cutting Down inventories hits the raw inventories or work in process lines. This Means that the manufacturer cuts Down on his orders from the manufacturer of raw materials. The manufacturer of these raw materials then has a double problem that of reducing his own inventories and of cutting off the Supply lines of the Basic materials from which they arc made and of meeting the new tax deadlines himself. He cuts Back his orders from the mines the farms and the forests to protect his own Cash position. This throws miners out of w Ork. Cuts Back on those who transport materials from the mines to his steel Mill his lumber Mill or his processing Plant. The workers go on jobless Relief Rolls and Cut Back on their own spending. This cuts Back on the retailer who normally Sells them and he in turn cuts Back on the wholesaler who Sells him and the wholesaler cuts Back on the manufacturer who supplies him. All along the line jobs Are lost. Jobless increases and the corporation that makes it a Point to keep All its employees working in Good times As Well As bad is penalized by having the payroll tax increased to take care of those in other lines of business who Are collecting unemployment benefits. He can stand this pressure just so Long. The severest tax punishment of All is reserved for the company or individual who tries hardest to Good wages and to keep employees working steadily throughout the year. Every raise in the social Security tax rate hits hardest at the company that pays its employees $4,800 a year or More. If the company furnishes Only part time employment and the annual w age is $2,400 per year the employees share of the social Security tax is just half that of the employer that pays at the higher rate. If too or More people arc employed this can become a serious problem. I he w or Kors themselves must More and the employer must we hat they times the number of employees on his payroll. Add to this Tho increased payment for unemployment also based on the payroll and the plight of the Good employer becomes a matter for concern for not Only his management but for his stockholders and last but by far the most important for his employees. The trend toward foreign imports and their effect on american business has been blamed quite often on the High wages paid to the workmen of this nation. A More truthful examination w ill reveal that this is a much smaller part of the reason for higher manufacturing costs in this land of the Brave and Home of the free. The real culprit is higher and higher taxes w High account for better than 50 per cent of the Cost of most manufactured articles. The present juror about Aid to education at the National level would never need to have been raised if High Federal taxes had not stripped local and state governments of revenues. State Aid to education would be less of a problem if High state taxation had not made it impossible to raise the revenues needed for local schools at the local level. The unemployment situation would not be so grave if the tax pressure on All business would allow enough margin for the keeping of reasonable inventories the addition of new manufacturing facilities and the creation of new goods which could be purchased by those regularly employed in business and industries not bankrupted by High taxes at All Levels. Jobs Are created by those w to have the capital the will and the desire to add to the National wealth through steady operation of their places of business. Continued pressure of High and higher taxes Only depletes the capital lessens the will and detracts from the desire to invest in the Job creating facilities that have built a great nation. It is beginning to look As if those who wrote the text for new horizons by the expansion of the Economy through lowered tax rates and better opportunities for the employers of the nations workers have been dropped by the Wayside.
