    Let me put it words you can understand:

    None of your business.

    Any follow up questions?

    And still no answers from anyone about how this tax bill is going to be paid for.
    90% of workers getting a tax cut and millions more getting tax cut bonuses, good times!

    Some retailers who initially announced bonuses, including Walmart and AT&T, subsequently announced layoffs. Further, a Monday poll from Reuters/Ipsos found that just 2 percent of American adults said they had received a raise or a bonus from the new tax law.

    AT&T was the first to announce one-time bonuses as a result of the tax bill. Just days later, it reported plans to lay off more than 1,000 employees in early 2018. Walmart announced it would raise the minimum wage for its workers to $11 per hour on January 11 but, that same day, announced the closure of 63 Samís Club stores. Walmart also laid off between 400 and 500 corporate employees at its headquarters last week. More store closures and layoffs are anticipated for mall retailers this year.

    Sears Holdings Co., the parent company of Sears and Kmart, announced Wednesday that it would lay off 220 employees at its corporate headquarters. Earlier this year, the company announced it would close 103 Kmart and Sears locations by April 2018. Sears Holdings has yet to announce benefits from the changes to the tax code....

    In the past 8 years we had the bad news when companies laid off workers but did not have this positive news of wage increases and bonuses because of a new law. It just didn't happen. But the job losses they were there. Let's all be thankful that we are seeing some positive news for a change. I know some people have to hate on Trump.

    I'm not hating on anyone, but when you hand out bonuses while laying others off, that says quite a bit about how things are in this country.

    Well, I suppose. You know what would be even better? Getting a significant raise.

    Don't think I'd base anything on what Sears is doing.

    They have been circling the drain for quite a while...

    And that ain't "crumbs" as Nancy Pelosi would say.


    More good news!

    Altria workers getting tax-windfall share

    Altria is giving 7,900 non executive employees a $3,000 bonus.

    Good news for American workers!

    For Trump Haters...not so much.
    And one time bonuses are the least of it. My company is expanding and hiring. Our customers are expanding and hiring. Everyone's wages and salaries are going up. Thank you Donald.
