So I heard a bit about this earlier today while I was out getting stuff done. Let me being by saying that I like our trash guys, they’re great. Real upstanding folks. So this isn’t about that. Is this gentleman trying to insinuate that he doesn’t pay any income taxes as a trash collector?
According to Simply Hired, the average salary for a garbage collector is $43,000 a year. So at that rate, Mitt’s garbage collector definitely would pay some income tax. And if he’s the guy who collects the trash outside Mitt’s home in San Diego… He definitely makes more and pays a bit of income tax. Perhaps someone should tell this guy that…
Having Mitt’s actual trash guy in an ad against him? Typical Dem tactics…
