    So, he decided to spend more on labor, when all he had to do was write a check, and spend less.
    Makes a lot more sense......unless he's bound by the labour laws.......as we are here. I CAN'T have an agreement, even signed by all including individual's counsel.....which will allow me to work the guys over 8 or over 40 on a project, then if/when we get it done pay them out a bonus....NOT ALLOWED to do that.....so no bonus.....only O/T that is HEAVILY taxed, whereas the bonus could be in the form of contractual and subject to way less taxes.
    Also, at Christmas, I'm not allowed to give them a bonus/gift.....without applying full tax on it.....not even once a year for $XXXX.XX dollars....$%#@ing government...!!!

    Sure, he could have just wrtten a check, with the taxes, and he still would have saved money by doing that.

    I'll bet one commonality between our governments is a lack of accountability for promises made to one generation, with no money set aside to ensure those promises can be kept.

    For example, long ago, when I was a kid, the congress of that time spent the money in our Social Security Trust Fund, and replaced the money with IOU's. Literally.

    Now, all those folks are dead and gone. Yet, people still expect that their promises will be kept.

    That is not likely to happen, and people are just holding their ears yelling "I can't hear you, I can't hear you."

    I agree with you Art......we had a court case here in BC whereby it went all the way to the Supreme Court and the judge threw it out......."you cannot hold a politician to their promises when they get in power"....but, if I was to promise to a customer what I was to do....then fail.....I would be sued sure as there is snow on the mountain today....
    Tough but cool, clean and quiet ride this morning.....'bout 10-12cm on top of the mountain and icy roads to/from....
    Have a good day guys......my daughters are piling into Mike's truck and driving over the Roger's Pass and the Coquihalla starting sometime late this afternoon.....
