Restrictions on Commerce Between the two nations. New York a wages and salaries have been so seriously depreciated by higher taxes and inflation that breadwinners who gained increases of up to 30 per cent Over the past six years May have actually lost buying Power the tax foundation says. Five base incomes Analysed by the private nonprofit foundation show that in the six Vear Span a 30 per cent increase in Dollar pay resulted in a decrease in a a real pay. Or. Elsie Waters senior research administrator for the new York based organization said economists and tax people a Are considerably concerned by the trend. They Are focusing on whether they will Ever be Able to control government spending. It seems to have run the tax foundation based its calculations on a family of four with one person working. A 30 per cent increase in a salary of $10,000 in 1966 would be Worth $13,000 today. How much is it Worth in buying Power now actually $156 less according to the foundation which deducted $745 As the increase in taxation in that period and $2,411 deducted As the inflation bite. This represented a 112 per cent decline in purchasing Power. A raise in salary from $20,000 in 1966 to $26,000 in 1972, less the $4,596 inflation bite and the $1,722 increase in taxation resulted in a net loss of $318 in buying Power the foundation said. A raise in salary from $30,000 to $39,000 in 1972 minus the $3,-244 increase in taxes and the $6,523 deducted for inflation resulted in a net loss of $767, or 24 per cent less in purchasing Power. Or Waters blamed the loss of purchasing Power on escalating inflation and rising state and social Security taxes. A state and local taxes Are going up faster than Federal taxes a she said. A from 1965 to 1970 these taxes Rose by 12 per cent a year which doubles them every six years. In that same period consumer spending was up 7 per cent and the Gross National product was up 7 per or. Waters said that 30 per cent was a a conservative Quot estimate of salary and wage increase since 1966. A but the figures make it quite Clear that you would have had to get increases of at least 35 per cent in that period to just stay even in terms of buying Power a she said.
