The Christmas presents under President Trump are way better than the lumps of coal we had during eight years of Obama!
Employees at Comcast are the latest to feel the shock-waves of the Trump boom–and just in time for the holidays.
The telecom conglomerate announced Wednesday evening that it would be giving over 100,000 “frontline and non-executive employees” a whopping $1,000 Christmas bonus.
Comcast also said it will “invest $50 billion over the next five years in infrastructure ‘based on the passage of tax reform.'”
The anticipated infrastructure investment means that Comcast workers will not only have extra cash for Christmas this year, but greater prospects in future years. The investment is likely to stimulate further job creation.
The announcement came soon after the House passed the sweeping GOP tax reform bill. Coming off the heels of a Senate approval Wednesday morning, the tax bill is off to President Trump’s desk for signing.
Comcast was not alone in rewarding its employees. Aerospace company Boeing pledged to invest $300 million in charitable projects, employee training and education, and facilities improvements.
Wells Fargo and Fifth Third BankCorp said they will raise their minimum wage to $15 due to the tax plan’s anticipated cut to corporate taxes.
Democrats and media pundits continue to be bewildered at regular Americans’ support for Trump and the GOP. The benefits thousands of employees are already enjoying powerfully shows why middle America wanted tax reform.
