AT&T was quick to respond to news of U.S. tax reform, announcing it would give some employees bonuses once the law is official.

The telecom giant said in a press release on Wednesday that it would give more than 200,000 U.S. union members a special bonus of $1,000. The company also increased its capital expenditures budget by $1 billion in the U.S.

"Congress, working closely with the President, took a monumental step to bring taxes paid by U.S. businesses in line with the rest of the industrialized world," CEO Randall Stephenson said in a statement. "This tax reform will drive economic growth and create good-paying jobs. In fact, we will increase our U.S. investment and pay a special bonus to our U.S. employees."

"Rue the day"   Best decision they made in 2017, could have been better, but still much better than sitting on their hands like Democrats and whining.

Congress did not have to legislate a minimum wage job. All you had to to was cut the taxes, and businesses pay more. :thumbsup:

Wells Fargo said Wednesday that it would boost minimum wages for employees to $15 an hour, following Fifth Third’s similar announcement.

Do you remember the Dems, Pelosi and MSM storyline that reducing the corporate tax on corporations will only result in raising dividend payouts and share buybacks and be of no benefit to the economy?

Higher employee wages, one hour after the bill passed to dispel that load of bull.:lol:
