    Well it's been just a little over a year since the bumbling fool, the Head Cheeto was elected. This could go in any number of threads in here.

    Walmart boosts pay for one million U.S. workers, tax reform is the reason why

    Walmart (WMT), the nation’s largest employer, will let over a million of its employees share in the benefits of the largest sweeping tax reform in three decades

    The retailer is boosting starting hourly wages to $11 an hour. Additionally, the retailer will give one-time $1,000 bonus payments to workers, depending on length of service at the company. It is also extending maternity and parental benefits. The changes take place in February.

    “We are early in the stages of assessing the opportunities tax reform creates for us to invest in our customers and associates and to further strengthen our business, all of which should benefit our shareholders” said CEO Doug McMillon in a statement on Thursday.
    Walmart joins other major S&P 500 companies that have rewarded employees after the passage of President Trump’s tax reform package which lowers the corporate tax rate to 21% from 35% and provides tax breaks for most American workers.

    AT&T (T), Comcast (CMCSA), Boeing (BA) and Bank of America (BAC) are among the companies that have rolled out extra perks and payouts in recent weeks all tied to tax reform benefits.

        Good business is Quid Pro Quo. DACA is going to bring 11 million out of the shadows, logical place of employment for some of those. DACA is how Trump gets the Dems to sign off on the wall.

        More on Walmarts benefits
        The company also will provide full-time hourly workers with 10 weeks of paid maternity leave and six weeks of paternal leave. Parents who adopt kids will get the same benefit, along with $5,000 to help cover the costs.

        DACA already gave them cards and they are already working. Probably at Walmart.

        Would you expect anything less from such a notoriously benevolent company?

        I wonder if they'll unlock the doors & let their employees finally go home?

        For all the crying about Wal-Mart form the left, they are a strong american company that is a success story. If you don't like it, don't work or shop there. Personally, I have no trouble shopping there. They employ a lot of folks.
