[Ed. – Never satisfied]
Boy, are they annoyed: Democrats are pooh-poohing the avalanche of announcements by major corporations that they’re giving their workers bonuses and raising wages after the passage of tax reform.
It’s classic left-wing disdain for anything big business does, even when it’s rewarding its workers — and even when those reaping the benefits include the Democratic cheerleading squad at MSNBC.
Following President Trump’s signing of the act, which lowers the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent, leading companies began — in his words — “showering their workers with bonuses.”
AT&T announced $1,000 bonuses for its 200,00 workers. So did Sinclair, the nation’s largest TV broadcaster, for 9,000 employees, and Comcast, MSNBC’s parent company.
Wells Fargo and Fifth Third Bankcorp are boosting their minimum wage to $15 an hour — a major goal for Democrats these days — and many of the same companies also announced new business and philanthropic investments of up to $1 billion.
