Happy days have arrived for hundreds of thousands of Walmart workers who are seeing some much-needed post-holiday good cheer in the form of raises, $1000 dollar bonuses, and an expanded maternity/parental leave program – all thanks to the Trump tax cuts.
Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is boosting its starting hourly wage to $11 and delivering bonuses to employees, capitalizing on the U.S. tax overhaul to stay competitive in a tightening labor market.
The increase takes effect next month and will cost $300 million on top of annual wage hikes that were already planned, the world’s largest retailer said Thursday. The one-time bonus of up to $1,000 is based on seniority and will amount to an additional $400 million. The company is also expanding its maternity and parental leave policy and adding an adoption benefit.
THIS is the true free market in action – less government leads to far more competition and allows companies both great and small to reinvest in ways that make them more competitive which often leads to higher wages and benefits for workers.
It is now coming to be known as the Trump Way. When running for president, it was Donald Trump who was speaking directly to the American Working Class like no politician has done in generations. That is because unlike a typical politician, Donald Trump has spent a lifetime creating jobs. In a way, despite being a billionaire, he is himself a working class man. His entire life has been linked to the working class.
And for that, the Establishment media and political machines, despise him.
Not that Mr. Trump cares – the Trump Train rolls on…
NOTE: On the same day Walmart announced the above raises and benefits expansion, a number of Sam’s Club stores have closed. Word is these closings are part of a significant restructuring process with the hope that displaced Sam’s Club workers will be given job opportunities at various Walmart locations.
Not a single Democrat voted in favor of giving working class Americans more money in their paychecks.
Not a single Democrat voted in favor of making it more affordable to raise a family.
Not a single Democrat voted in favor of having U.S. companies bring money back into America instead of parking it overseas.
Not a single Democrat voted for MORE union jobs here at home.
MAKE THE GRINCH PARTY PAY THE PRICE IN 2018 BY VOTING THEM OUT-OUT-OUT!!!!!
WOW!!! POTUS Trump is set to deliver a series of crushing blows to some sacred globalist cows in a pre-Christmas flurry of activity the likes of which America has not seen since the days of Ronald Reagan.
**TAX CUTS AND MORE TAX CUTS: House and Senate Republicans are poised to send a tax cut/reform bill to POTUS that will reduce rates across the board, including corporate taxes, while also increasing the child tax credit and standard deduction. While not a perfect plan, most Americans will see a net benefit and the impact upon the economy overall is expected to be positive – potentially very positive which in turn will mean more JOBS-JOBS-JOBS.
**ENDS OBAMACARE TAX PENALTY FOR THOSE NOT BUYING INSURANCE: This is being viewed as a “masterful” move by the Trump White House that has the far left now enraged. By taking the boot of the federal government off the necks of Americans who didn’t want to be forced into the Obamacare one size fits all healthcare slaughterhouse, many now believe the already-collapsing Obamacare will fail even more quickly and a new and more financially responsible approach to meeting the nation’s healthcare needs, can be accomplished.
**REMOVES CLIMATE CHANGE AS A “NATIONAL SECURITY RISK”: This is a direct slap at the often ludicrous self-promoting legacy of the Obama years that had military pencil pushers focused more on the weather than on real threats to national security like ISIS and an increasingly volatile Middle East, North Korea, etc. An added bonus to this move is the opening up of new energy resources in Alaska – it’s a one-two punch that has globalists reeling.
Donald Trump and his millions of supporters are set to have a very-very Merry Christmas…
