Yep, those corporate tax cuts sure helped Sam's Club emplyee's, didn't they Snoopy?  They'll be looking for that extra "nothing" in their February pay checks.


It's 2:18pm. -have you checked the children and oh, yea, the stock market? What a ride. Thanks Donald and Republicans.

Only a fool would not notice/admit the recovery happening since a year ago.


Only a fool would not know this is happening all over the world as the world economy is going strong. A large country can start a downturn by bad policy and we did in the early 2000 (Mortgage bubble), and when they fix what they caused it can create an up turn which it did. Only a few large countries can do this and we are one of them.

Bull market is 103 months old. Trump owns 11 of them

  • Largest private U.S. employer to give bonuses of up to $1,000
  • Company says tax reform allows acceleration of U.S. plans

 

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 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.

 
 
 

“Tax reform gives us the opportunity to be more competitive globally and to accelerate plans for the U.S.,” Chief Executive Officer Doug McMillon said in the statement.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++

 

More optimism and good news for American workers!  Day by day the MAGA agenda moves forward to improve life for ALL Americans.

 


Jimc,   I went to your link and it is a Bloomberg article ( why is that?) about how Trump's tax cut will be the demise of New York and I copied this from the link:

 

"The American South will keep rising and Dallas will eclipse New York. The city that never sleeps has had its obituary written plenty of times, but it may just have met its match in native son Donald Trump. This week on the Benchmark podcast, Bloomberg View's Daniel Moss and Bloomberg News' Scott Lanman discuss how Trump’s tax-cut law is more than just a deficit-busting giveaway to the rich; it affirms the economic and political rise of the South. Even New York's famed cultural and intellectual scene is in jeopardy along with financial primacy. Jared Dillian, publisher of the `Daily Dirtnap' and a Bloomberg View contributor explains how to Dan and Scott."

I get that Republicans feel that when you make money in a community (city, state, or country) you have no obligation to pay for the services you consume.

========================

Gee, I though I had heard a lot of nonsense from the Republican hatters but that tops everything.
