I've never heard of such a tax! You have to pay a tax just to work.....before you've earned anything? When did Bradford go Communist? And you people think that's NORMAL? I've been all across America and I've never seen such a mad money grab from a city. No wonder Bradford is dying.......
It's been this way ever since I can remember. It used to be $10 a year to work in the city of Bradford, then several years ago, it got raised to $52 a year. I've heard rumors that other small cities tax ppl for working there, but don't know if it's true. If you make less than a certain amount, say 10K, then you don't have to pay it. It may be deducted, but you can go to city hall and try to get it back. Back in 1982, I worked at Pizza Hut, and they took the $10 out of my first check. Then I quit to go to work in a grocery store, and they took another $!0 out of my first check. I went to City Hall to get my 2nd $10 back, and the woman was totally snotty and argued with me that Pizza Hut just opened, so they could not have taken it out! From then on, I kept ALL pay stubs.
Fast forward 30 years. This past summer, working in a hot kitchen, feet aching, back hurting, I look out the screen door to see a parade of scummers strolling by, smoking, swearing, loaded with tats and babies, not a care in the world. And WE have to pay an additional $52 a year to work so they can fritter away the day. Yes, I hate the welfare in THIS town!
