To your OP, you don't specify which taxes you're talking about. Personally, I don't think personal income taxes (which seems to be where you're headed) play any role whatsoever in a business' willingness to hire. Walmart doesn't care whether their employees are paying 1% or 80% on their income, they only care whether or not their customers have money to spend. Sure, they'd appreciate lower personal rates as it puts more money in customers' pockets, but it doesn't directly affect their cash flows.Well, there is plenty of empirical evidence that high personal income taxes reduce economic growth. Whether it reduces a business' willingness to hire is another story.
