Business tax breaks won’t raise wages

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion Donald Trump and the Republicans in the House and Senate claim that their proposed business tax reduction will result in increased wages for employees. Not only have wages never gone up in response to past business tax reductions, but a bit of logic shows how ridiculous this claim is.Assume you are planning on taking a trip. Most people would decide where they wanted to go and then search for the lowest prices for airfare and hotels. Now, imagine that your boss gave you a 10 percent wage increase. Would you then decide that you should pay more for those same flight and hotel reservations? I don’t think anyone would do that.Most businesses pay employees as little as they can to attract and retain the staff they need. Most businesses executives also believe their primary responsibility is to increase shareholder value. It is therefore reasonable to assume that any business tax reduction would be passed on to shareholders and not to employees.Victor RobertsBurnt HillsMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censuslast_img read more

Who decides where statue will end up?

first_imgThe city council adopted Resolution #2013-206 on Aug. 12, 2013, for an Implementation Plan that calls for Liberty to be returned along State Street near the CDTA shelter. Does that mean that all resolutions don’t mean anything after they’re passed by legal votes?Mr. Riggi stated: “Who makes the decision to put the statue back or in Steinmetz Park? Is it the council’s move or the mayor’s?” We want to know.My question is, why did the people of Goose Hill have to come up with over 200 subjects to sign petitions to have the statue placed in Steinmetz Park?Mayor McCarthy seems to be the decision maker, and he stated it will be a “semi-happy” decision.James A. WilsonSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?Schenectady, Saratoga casinos say reopening has gone well; revenue down 30%Schenectady’s Lucas Rodriguez forging his own path in dance, theater, musicSchenectady police reform sessions pivot to online I was one of the speakers at the Schenectady City Council meeting on March 26 regarding the returning of the Statue of Liberty that was removed from Gateway (Liberty) Park due to construction.This is the land of liberty, and everyone is entitled to voice their opinion in speech or the written word. Everyone knows that we all have three minutes to speak. That’s not a lot of time when you are standing up there. Take the time to count to 180 and you will see how fast the time goes. You think about what you’re going to say beforehand and then the clocks cuts you off. Council President Kosouir is very good at reminding you that your time is short.Everyone who spoke in favor or against returning the Lady Liberty statue to its original space in Gateway (Liberty) Plaza or Steinmetz Park made good sense.We all could have saved time and let the words of Councilman Vince Riggi speak for all of us. In part, he stated that he had received calls from many people asking about the return of the statue to its original place. In checking with city employees, it was confirmed that the statue was going back to its rightful place — Liberty Park. Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinionlast_img read more

Letters to the Editor for Tuesday, Dec. 17

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionPelosi uses religion to push her politicsA few days ago, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi told an assembled group of reporters that President Trump’s impeachment inquiry was moving forward.One reporter asked Speaker Pelosi, a simple question, “Do you hate Donald Trump?”The angry speaker responded, “I don’t hate anyone. I was brought up a Catholic.I immediately asked myself a question: Ms. Speaker, are you praying for the president’s demise or his success?The mainstream media immediately provided top cover and praised the speaker’s response.It is obvious that the secular pundits and the “Catholic” speaker do not know much about the Catholic religion but are certainly collaborating political allies.Ms. Pelosi supports abortion, the deliberate killing of the unborn. The speaker also supports same sex marriage.Why does she support abortion and same sex marriage? I don’t know; you’ll have to ask her. But perhaps an opinion poll revealed a winning strategy to get more votes. Ms. Pelosi takes advantage of her Catholicism when convenient for her political objectives.The Bible and the Catholic Church reject abortion and same sex marriage, both liberal positions. Politics.Rafael PoloNorthvilleGrateful for great season of Muni golfThe year 2019 was a great season of golf at Schenectady Muni Golf Course. Special thanks go out to Matt and Chris in the pro shop, June and Dave in the restaurant, and Jake and his grounds crew. You and your staff’s positive enthusiasm made golfing at “Muni” a real pleasure.John ClarkCharltonTrump, Stefanik put liberals in their placeThank you, Mr. President, for putting the tariffs on goods from other countries. It’s working. More jobs and higher stocks.Is Pelosi going wacky? Now she wants to get our president on bribery charges. Really? If that doesn’t work, what next? She is wasting a lot, and I mean a lot, of taxpayers’ money. Why doesn’t she stop grasping at straws? I don’t know who is worse — her or Hillary, who illegally used her private email server with sensitive information and hasn’t spent one day in jail.Maybe they should make all of the liberals show their tax statements for the last eight years. I take everything the liberals say as lies.I don’t see any other congressmen or women standing up for the president against the liberals except for Congresswoman Elise Stefanik. She did an excellent job defending our president in Congress. The liberals also lied about leaving the country if the president won. Have you noticed that they are still here? What a disappointment. Congresswoman Stefanik did a great job in Congress interviewing the liberals. She put them in their place.On a separate topic, as far as someone shooting another person accidentally, that is a bunch of bull. Always, before cleaning your gun, point the gun in a safe direction and then open the chamber to make sure it’s empty. The other day, a guy was put on probation for accidentally shooting his wife. Wrong.James MaxfieldScotiaMore from The Daily Gazette:Foss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?Gov.
