In recent news there has been a lot of disscussion about tax rates. From my understanding of the percentage of tax that people are paying it seems that minimum wage earners are paying the highest percentage of tax and the wealthiest individuals are paying the lowest percentage of tax. How did this happen? Is there any economic credibility to the current tax system? Wouldn't it make more sense if anyone earning more than minimum wage paid at least the same percentage of tax as minimum wage earners?
