SS, unmploye, etc, add another $1 per hour. you must be able to turn a profit, after paying the ENTIRE $11 per hour. He doesn't CARE who it goes to, it's still all of it one of his expenses. Say SS magically disappeared, can he STILL charge you that $1 an hour "extra" out of your check? what if his competitor is paying the full $11 an hour to HIS workers, hmm? who will you soon work for? Whom will you be mad at? To whom will you tell everything you know about your old boss? So you see, you ARE paying all of your SS 15%. it's a tax, just like all the rest of it, and if you're less than 50 years old, you'll never see a dime of it, either. The $ bill is going to collapse before you're 70 (which will be YOUR minimum retirement age. The baby boomers are going to collapse SS, and with it, the $. Politicians don't DARE touch current SS policies, so they will just inflate the $ the rest of the way into worthlessness. it's already only worth 1.5c on what USED to be a $ (vs price of gold) A $20 bill, 100 years ago, bought an oz of gold. Now it takes (approx) 65 of those same $20 bills to buy that oz of gold.
