the original claim was for that specific Employee... charts and averages just don't apply.

no way we can say he isn't as specially, specifically skilled as an NFL QB


Actually the original claim was "every employer." But just for the sake of argument, let's say that he really is that skilled. Tom Brady makes $11,400,000 million per year. FICA taxes are 6.2% up to $113,700 or $7050 in his case.

Is the argument really that absent FICA his contract would have been $11,407,050 because management would not be able to afford that extra little bit?
