Thanks Tax Cuts! Walmart is Making Big Changes for Its Employees
Democrats better hope there's actual video of Donald Trump peeing on Russian hookers. Because they really screwed the pooch by voting against tax reform. One by one, companies are proving leftists wrong (see Thanks Tax Cuts! Southwest Just Announced Huge Employee Bonuses and Millennials’ New Attitude on Tax Cuts Have Top Democrats Panicked…). This morning the most evil one of them all, Walmart, raised salaries.
Public enemy #1, if you're a Democrat, is doing all the things Democrats swore companies wouldn't do.
The big-box retailer announced Thursday it will be increasing its starting wage rate for hourly employees in the U.S. to $11, and expand maternity and parental leave benefits. The retailer also will pay a one-time cash bonus to eligible employees of as much as $1,000.
Currently, Walmart's starting wage is $9 until workers complete a training program. Then, they receive $10.
The company is also creating a new benefit that provides financial assistance to its employees who are looking to adopt a child, giving them as much as $5,000 per child to cover expenses such as adoption agency fees, translation fees and legal costs.
"Tax reform gives us the opportunity to be more competitive globally and to accelerate plans for the U.S.," CEO Doug McMillon said in a statement.

Is it a publicity stunt? Is the company in cahoots with President Literally Hitler?
All over America, the following conversation is being had.
LEFTIST DOUCHBURRITOS: But, it's all a publicity stunt! Walmart should have done this--
WALMART EMPLOYEES: Shut your face hole, Nancy. We'll take the money!
So now, Democrats have to spend 2018 convincing the middle class that keeping more of their money is bad for them. While also praying Trump keeps tweeting distractions from the middle class keeping more of their money.
Ok, that latter part they can probably rely on. But if it's me? I don't care what crazy things he's tweeting with his totally normal fingers. He wants me to have more of my money. The left wants me to have less of it. When we all have more of our own money, watch how the economy smiles upon us all.
Democrats 2018: Give it all back, it's ours.
Americans 2018: Screw you guys.
