RE: New Masonry on Existing Slabs on Grade

I would sawcut the slab and pour a new footing with the top flush with the
floor unless the wall is non-load bearing and light enough to be supported
directly on the floor.

I was wondering how other people handle placing new masonry bearing walls
on
top of existing slabs on grade?  Is the slab cut out and a footing placed,
or does the masonry rest directly on the slab, or something else?  What are
pros and cons for the details that are used?
