Brick & Mortar jobs lost.
Internet Jobs Gained.
This is a washout. Just jobs being transferred from one area to another.
With my state, California, there is an income tax of 10%. Then there is a sales tax of 10%. Then there are fuel taxes second only to New Youk and Havaii. Then there are property taxes almost unaffordable.
SO, what do I do to seek some relief? Well, I shop online at every opportunity. To HELL with the MOT***F**KE*N politicians in this state who have taxed my income so I'm almost into poverty.
Then Amazon makes a deal with California to collect California sales taxes from its customers. Well, guess where I don't shop anymore!
