Super-MAGA-Christmas-Winning Continues: BoA, Sinclair Corp and Bob Parsons Join Tax Bonus Distributions…

The Super-MAGA-Winning continues with more companies joining the Christmas Bonus parade.   Amid the passage of the tax reform package in congress, numerous companies have announced their intention to pass out Christmas bonuses to employees.

Previously:  ♦AT&T announced $1,000 bonuses for 200,000 employees (link); ♦Wells Fargo Bank announced they were raising the minimum wage to $15/hr and planned on donating $400 million to charity (link); ♦Fifth-Third Bankcorp joined in with its own plan for $15 minimum wages and $1,000 bonuses for 1,500 employees (link); and ♦Comcast announced they were giving $1,000 bonuses to more than 100,000 of their employees (link).

Today, the tax benefits continue: ♦Sinclair Broadcasting announced they would pass out $1,000 Christmas bonuses to over 9,000 eligible workers (link).  Not to be left out, ♦Bank of America announced $1,000 bonuses for 145,000 American workers (link); and ♦Billionaire businessman Bob Parsons joins in with $1,000 and $2,000 bonuses to each of his 600+ employees (link).

…”The passage of the tax credit is a catalyst for explosive economic growth. On a massive scale, the lowered federal tax burden on businesses will increase investment, entrepreneurship and corporate philanthropy,” said Parsons. “I’ve always believed in sharing good news and have decided to celebrate the tax plan by giving back to my staff.”…

          Over at The_Donald, there are many individuals who are telling stories of unexpected bonuses from Companies which are small…one young man said his Co was giving those who are normally off on Mondays, pay for their holiday, which they have never done.Many more talk of $500 or more in bonuses.
          Also stories from sm business owners who have had to turn down orders bc they cannot keep up with orders; some say their companies have added a shift.
          Lotsa good stuff…I love these smaller business, personal stories.

    Oh. The Dems sure are having a tough time selling the Tax Reform as being ‘Tax Cuts For The Rich’ when these bonus announcements come the day after the bill is passed.

    • Yeah, well, part of getting the Main Street economy moving again is not only increasing wages but also opening up opportunities to move to another company, rather than feeling stuck in a dead end. There are lots of folks during the Obama years counted as “employed”, but in reality they were not prospering. They just stayed where they were cause there were no other options.

      Hopefully, doors will open to you when the spring thaw comes. 🌱

    The burgeoning ranks of companies going public with year end bonuses sparked by the passage of the Tax Bill, present an interesting question of whether other companies will feel pressure to follow with similar bonuses or risk painting themselves as Scrooge’s by their own employees. Let’s hope the Wave builds.

    Travelers (insurance) gives bonus and wage increase.

    “Joining a growing list of companies handing out cash in the wake of federal legislation that slashes corporate tax rates, the Travelers Cos. Inc. told its staff Friday it will give bonuses of $1,000 to thousands of employees.

    Chief Executive Officer Alan Schnitzer said in a letter to employees that Travelers will give the bonuses in January to about 14,000 employees with a base salary of $75,000 a year or less and who meet “performance expectations.”

    Travelers also will increase its hourly wage to $15 for the “small number” of U.S. employees making less than that amount, Schnitzer said.”

    Am I dreaming or have a half million employees gotten a $1000 year end bonus and the package was just signed only a few hours ago. The ink aint even dry and WOW. Think about it: a half Billion bucks flooding the economy at Christmas time and the ripple down effect it will have.
    Just WOW.
    A week ago I predicted a 10G launch. But this is way beyond that! Kind of makes the Saturn Five rocket look like a bottle rocket.

    Just think how many voters that embraced the wicked witch of the west will actually go WOW, I guess Trump was serious and think about that when voting in November. A subject for our prayer warriers.

    We aren’t tired of winning yet, The real donald trump Twitter account fires tweets heard around the world. He must be on target with this bombing run, the complaints of “unfair” are starting to surface from abroad.

    I’m not American. I’m Australian.
    Yet I am a Trump supporter.
    Yes, Trump says “America first”. He is right. And Americans are right to support him in this. But in this, he is fighting for every secular western democracy on this planet. I may have an Australian Prime Minister, but Donald J. Trump is my President.
    “Narcissistic! Braggart! Buffoon!” Who cares about these pointless insults? Trump clearly cares about advancing the nation that allowed him to prosper. As a foreign citizen I say that if he does so, every secular western democracy will benefit as well.
    An old saying: “If America sneezes, the world catches a cold”.
    How about a new saying: “If America inoculates, the world doesn’t catch the flu” ?

    Treeper’s, Trump isn’t perfect. No human is perfect. But as an Australian, I say he’s the best chance we’ve got. That’s right America, this is bigger than the US. Trump, not the RINOs, must win. This match ain’t for the future of America, it’s for the future of the world.
