Walmart to Increase Wages, Give Bonuses in Response to Tax Reform

From the Free Beacon:
Walmart on Thursday responded to recently passed tax reform that reduced the corporate tax rate to 21 percent, announcing its plans to raise the company’s starting wage, give employees one-time bonuses, and expand maternity and parental leave benefits. 
Doug McMillon, Walmart’s president and CEO, wrote in a blog post that given the lowered business tax rate dictated by H.R. 1, also known as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the company now has an opportunity to “accelerate” their “investment plan.” 
Starting in February, the world’s largest retailer will raise its starting wage to $11 an hour, up $2 from the current $9 an hour base, for Walmart U.S., Sam’s Club, Supply Chain, eCommerce, and Home Office employees.

It is good to see that Wal-Mart is also expanding paid maternity leave, giving six weeks of paid paternal leave (these are things championed by Ivanka Trump).

$5,000 to defray the cost of adoption? We could have put that to good purpose when adopting our sons!

MAGA. Making America rich again! The POTUS is a promise-keeper.
