The rate of taxation is such that it acts as a deterrent to continuing to work. When you are getting taxed 33% Federal, plus state, SS and other misc taxes, that really good gross paycheck becomes a net mediocre motivatorHonestly - I still don't get this. It isn't at all any kind of demotivator to me, and I live in CA so have very high taxes. I am not unmotivated to work because of taxes. Having more money (i.e. working more) is better, even with some of it going to taxes. Seems simple. The way to get more money? Work more.And maybe that's because we've seen too many friends die behind their desks in their 40's. Now THIS may be a motivator. If you are burnt out, by all means, work less.
