It’s been only a month and a half since Congress passed President Trump’s historic tax cut. Since then, more than 250 large companies have offered bonuses to their employees, solely because of the major tax overhaul.
Many of these firms have paid every single, non executive, employee $1,000, with some offering as much as a $3,000 bonus to every employee.
As if Hillary Clinton’s past few days haven’t been bad enough with the release of the FISA memo showing the Obama administration and FBI colluding to cheat for her in the 2016 election, now HER LARGEST DONOR is also handing out huge employee bonuses because of the Trump tax cuts. Ain’t that a peach?
The Western Journal reports:
Hillary Clinton’s largest campaign donor has joined the long list of company owners handing out bonuses to employees thanks to the tax reform passed by the Trump administration.
Media moguls Haim and Cheyl Saban announced Friday that they will be giving $1,000 bonuses to their employees because of the new tax bill.
The Sabans donated over $2 million dollars to Clinton’s campaign, according to a 2015 article by The Washington Post.
Now, the pair has joined other companies who are promising a bonus of some type thanks to the new law passed by Clinton’s adversary, President Donald Trump.
The Saban’s letter to their employees states:
To our valued team,
As you may know, at the end of 2017, the Federal Government enacted the most fundamental tax reform since 1986. These reforms are impacting our company in different ways, including a lower tax rate.
As a global investment firm, we recognize that our most important assets are every one of you – at Saban Capital, Real Estate, Films, Brands, Foundation and the Family Office.
We have been inspired by what Bob Iger has done for Disney employees. As the Hebrew saying goes “I shall learn from all my teachers” so we decided to follow suit.
Eligible employees will receive a one-time after-tax bonus of $1,000. We recognize and appreciate your hard work and dedication.
Cheryl & Haim
So, thanks President Trump and Republicans in Congress, another hard working group of Americans are receiving what Nancy Pelosi calls “crumbs.” Debbie Wasserman Schultz also put her two cents in about $1,000 bonuses saying, “I’m not sure that $1,000 goes very far for almost anyone.”
