France To Abolish Payroll Tax For Low Income Workers

Ironically, in France, where they have a high minimum wage they are trying to reduce the cost, for employers, of hiring low skilled workers while here in the US many are trying to increase the cost of hiring low skilled workers by hiking the minimum wage or implementing a "living wage."  The result, of course, is far fewer employment opportunities here in the US for low skilled workers. But what the hey, our intentions were good.
