    More great news for American workers!

    Thanks Trump!
    Next year he'll take away their SS and healthcare and clean water.

    The article did not say.

    Bonuses being paid to more than 100,000 Tyson Foods employees is a good thing, yes?

    Is that a prediction?

    Like all the predictions of how long Trump will be in office?

    Because pretty much all of THOSE predictions have been wrong...

    Not that it makes much difference, because the information I just asked for would never be publicly released. They would never want anyone to see the whole picture.

    Sounds like it. But I want to see the whole picture, not just the PR stunt.

    If I am a Tyson employee and I get a $1K bonus this year, with total bonuses of $1M, would I get that bonus next year? How much are management bonuses? Executive bonuses? If the top executives are taking home millions in bonuses this year, and the next, and the next, but I only got $1K once, do you not think that information would be useful for me to determine how I might vote next time? That is the real and only purpose of "tax cuts" like this - a public relations stunt in an election year. Next year, the same tax cuts would be in effect, but likely no bonuses, except for the people at the top.

    So yes, I want to see the whole picture before I pass judgment, because otherwise it is just another snow job.

    I'm sure all those Hispanics and Somalis will be loving Trump now.

    The article was in my business section in the portion that said "Compiled from wire reports by staff".

    The credit is given to "-Nathan Owens" whoever that is.

    Spokesman for Tyson Foods, maybe?
