So this is really a backdoor way to cut the salaries of civil servants and unions? They pay them, but tax them more, and they are the only ones impacted since their salaries are on the books.

Raise the taxes high enought and people will always find a way to evade them. Same thing is happening in CA. People want to work for cash and declare no income..or just enough to get the earned income tax credit.
A uniform flat tax would solve a lot of this, but the politicians will never give up the graduated tax with exemptions they can manipulate to get votes.
These high tax and spend countries are broke and our states with the same habits are broke. Any message there?
