WOW, EVEN THE MOST LIBERAL OF CORPORATIONS ADMIT THE BENEFITS OF THE TRUMP TAX CUTS!!!
Via CNBC comes this amazing admission from one of America’s most liberal corporations; Starbucks will raise their employee’s pay and benefits in 2018 thanks to the PRESIDENT TRUMP-GOP tax cuts. That is correct, Starbucks actually stated so. I guess President Trump is “making Starbucks Great Again” too. A note to all of the Starbucks liberal employees and baristas, it was Trump, yes, that man you so love to hate that made it happen. It was also the work of the Republicans in the House and Senate who provided this for you as well. Not one Democrat voted for the tax plan that allowed you to keep more of your own money and by reducing the corporate tax rate, allowed for your employer to pass the benefits to you. You might want to remember that in the 2018 midterms and 2020 elections.
Starbucks will use some of the savings from the new U.S. corporate tax cuts to give domestic employees pay raises, company stock and expanded benefits with a combined worth of more than $250 million, the company said on Wednesday.
With the announcement, the world’s biggest coffee chain joins companies like Walmart, Apple, Comcast, and American Airlines in sharing their tax savings with employees.
Starbucks is known for giving its workers, which it calls “partners,” more generous pay and benefits than other mass-market restaurants and retailers.
“Investing in our partners has long been our strategy, and due to the recent changes in U.S. tax law, we are able to accelerate some significant partner investments,” Chief Executive Kevin Johnson said in a letter to employees.
Seattle-based Starbucks said it will give hourly and salaried employees, who received pay raises in January, a second wage increase in April.
It is giving additional stock grants to eligible employees on April 16. Coffee shop workers will receive a grant of at least $500 and store managers will receive $2,000 grants.
Walmart Announces Bonuses to One Million Employees in Wake of Trump Tax Cut & Raise Starting Hourly Wage
MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN …
In the wake of the President Donald Trump tax cuts, WALMART has announced that it will give one million employees a bonus and raise their starting hourly wage to $11. Trump has started the ball rolling and the businesses as predicted are following.
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.
MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN …
As reported at The Hill, according to a recent Quinnipiac University poll two-thirds of voters polled, 66%, stated that they would characterize the economy as “excellent” or “good.” Happy days are here again. This is the highest the poll has ever recorded. However, I have to say that there is a serious ignorance and derangement going on in this country. As per the poll, 49% say former President Obama is more responsible for the current economy, while 40% attribute the current economic state to President Trump. Are you people on crack? One can only attribute stuff like this to the 24-7 negative news stories on Trump and the unwillingness to give him credit for anything. Folks, Trump has done away with thousands of Obama administration regulations, the stock market took off because “TRUMP” was elected and because the business actually see stability, not the uncertainly of the Obama years. Get a clue. I guess Obama and the Democrats were also responsible for the tax cuts as well? Stop kidding yourself and stop the lie … Trump was elected to turn America back around again to capitalism, not the socialist path we were going down under Obama.
Perceptions of the U.S. economy have reached a record high among voters, according to a new poll.
Two-thirds of voters polled, 66 percent, said in a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday they would characterize the economy as “excellent” or “good.” Quinnipiac noted that figure is the highest rating since it began asking the question in 2001.
Thirty-three percent, however, said they view the economy as “not so good” or “poor.”
A majority of voters, 73 percent, said they would characterize their own current financial standing as “excellent” or “good,” while 26 percent said their financial situation is “not so good” or “poor.”
Wells Fargo & Fifth Third Bancorp Provide Bonuses & Unveil Minimum Wage Hikes after GOP Tax Bill Passage
SO THIS IS WHAT ARMAGEDDON MEANS TO DEMOCRATS … EMPLOYEES BENEFIT AFTER TAX CUT BILL PASSAGE …
Merry Christmas from President Donald J. Trump and the Republicans in The House and Senate. Because the GOP Tax Bill was passed, look what happened in return. Remember, not one, not one Democrat voted for this legislation. Wells Fargo and Fifth Third Bank provide early Christmas presents to their employees, thanks to passage of the Tax bill.
Fifth Third Bancorp will pay more than 13,500 employees a bonus and raise the minimum wage of its workforce to $15 an hour after the passage of the Republican tax plan that will cut the bank’s corporate tax rate.
Fifth Third is yet another company to announce a bonus for employees because of the tax plan. AT&T said earlier Wednesday that it would pay more than 200,000 U.S. employees $1,000 each and increase its capital spending budget by $1 billion.
Wells Fargo, meanwhile, also said it would be boosting its minimum wage for employees to $15 an hour, which was prompted by the tax plan. The San Francisco-based bank also said it would target $400 million in donations to community and nonprofit organizations next year.
Can You Say Racism? “BlackXmas” … Black Lives Matters Want Black People in America to Boycott All the Stores run by White People in America
HOW RACIST, BLACK LIVES MATTERS DREAMING OF A BLACK ONLY CHRISTMAS …
Black Lives Matters is dreaming of a BlackXmas. Why doesn’t this come as a shock? The racist, socialist group is calling for blacks to boycott white businesses merely because the owners are white. Of course BLM so hates capitalism as well. Is America finally figuring out what this group is all about? Black Lives Matters wants to bring down “white” capitalism with Black Christmas. So this is the First Amendment, eh? Voting with one’s wallet is a powerful form of free speech and is supposed to harm nobody. However, when you make race the main and only issue, Houston we have a problem. Imagine, just imagine an all-white, pro-white group stating that all black businesses should be boycotted by white America? Can you hear the liberals, MSM and Democrats hue and cry throughout the land? I am guesses that BLM would be okay if we reversed the premise between the colors of people and those who own businesses? Hardly. What would the reaction be if white supremacists wanted to boycott black businesses, just because of color? The fact BLM wants to target individuals and businesses mere because of one color is as racist as it gets. Just curious BLM, do you remember who said the following: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
Group leaders say it’s time for people to “resist white capitalism” and divest from businesses that contribute to racial inequality. Melina Abdullah, a BLM leader who is a professor at California State University, Los Angeles (CSU-LA), is encouraging shoppers to use their money to support economic empowerment for minorities.
“We say ‘white capitalism’ because it’s important that we understand that the economic system and the racial structures are connected,” said Abdullah during her weekly radio show, Beautiful Struggle. “We have to not only disrupt the systems of policing that literally kill our people, but we have to disrupt the white supremacist, capitalistic, patriarchal, heteronormative system that is really the root cause of these police killings.”
White Christmas: BLM Does Realize that Bing Crosby was Referring to Snow, Right?
No racism or anti-capitalism here, move along. So MLM wants black people to boycott all stores run by white people and to only buy or donate their monies to black owned businesses or organizations. Hmm, isn’t the very mention that black should boycott all white racist in its essence? Using color and a people to be the rational to boycott is the definition of racism.
Black Lives Matter has started a campaign to get all the black people in America to boycott all the stores run by white people in America, and shop only those outlets owned and operated by black people.
But don’t worry — that’s not racist. After all, the same people advocating for “BlackXmas” would be quite OK with a “WhiteXmas.” Right?
“We’re dreaming of a #BlackXmas,” tweeted #BlackLivesMatter-LA. @BLMA, as the Daily Caller noted.
How could purposeful division make anything better? America, wake up and call racism in whatever form it is in for what it is, RACISM.
