Yahoo Found A Company That Won't Pay Bonuses, And Actually Wrote An Article About It
You mean that a company barely staying afloat won't pay bonuses? Well, I guess that's the nail in the coffin for Trump's tax cuts.

Right? RIGHT?!

Pathetic.

Expect them to be a rallying cry for the alt-left, nonetheless.

My company makes billions...they ain't paying any bonuses.

We don't even plan on hiring additional programmers or analysts to deal with the increased work load as a result of all the changes in the tax code!

So much depth and substance in that statement.

The left believes that employers could shower their workers with money & other benefits, but choose not to do so because they are just big ol’ meanies.

Maybe they require minimum standards for bonuses, such as, if you are going to tout yourself as an expert on Obamacare, you must at least know what an insurance deductible is.

Billions in sales or billions in profits? The first is a good size universe, the latter not so much.

Come on kronke. This is business. Most companies are not in the business of giving out bonuses to make the president look good. The ones that do, are the same ones lobbying and greasing palms behind the scenes. If your company is owned by an investment group, you won't see a cent. Their goal is to put more money in their own pockets. Not yours.

Around 11 billion in revenue with 1.5 billion of operating income for 2016. 2017 was better I'm pretty sure...but I have not heard the specifics yet.

As I said in another answer if I own a factory and make a product that makes me a $1 profit per item and I develop a new product that doesn't require additional skill or labor and makes me a $10 profit per item I'm not handing out raises as long as I am finding workers.

Walmart is handing out raises, adding enhanced paid maternity leave, money for adoptions, and year-end retention bonuses, not because they make more money from the tax code but because they are having issues with worker retention and attracting new workers.

In the Sam Walton era, the employee stock program kept a lot of people there and made some millionaires, after he was gone and the Wall Street driven leadership abandoned Buy American and scaled back the stock program and reduced full-time employment it went well for a time but now it's getting hard to attract and retain so they are changing their policies.

Sit back and watch. If the economic upturn continues there is going to be more and more howling from business to open up immigration to put downward pressure on wages.
