And the Lazy Shall Inherit the Earth...

After calculating how much we're saving in childcare expenses, saving in taxes, and getting in unemployment- if Brent returns to a job making EXACTLY what he was making-our NET additional take home is only an additional $1200 A MONTH.

Granted going back to work means we'd be able to contribute more to charity, employ two people, and of course, increase government revenue by paying more taxes - but with the tax laws being what they are, and unemployment being as generous as it is, why would anyone be eager to return to the workforce for a mere $1200 a month?
