If the worker's wages fall because of what he sees as larger tax deductions from his wage packet, it is up to him and his colleagues to claw the amount back from his employer through his industrial strength (i.e. trade unions). If he is not in a trade union, then he has some rethinking to do.
Much of what is perceived as "tax" on wages is in fact *equalisation"--to ensure, say, that an unmarried worker doesn't take home the same amount as a married one with two children.
