OPEN YOUR MIND, AND MORE ► Home Depot hourly employees to receive up to $1,000 bonus due to tax reform

Home Depot hourly employees to receive up to $1,000 bonus due to tax reform

“Home Depot is awarding its hourly employees in the U.S. a one-time cash bonus of as much as $1,000 following the passage of new tax legislation,” Lauren Thomas of CNBC reports.

“This incremental investment in our associates was made possible by the new tax reform bill,” Home Depot Chief Executive Officer Craig Menear said. "We are pleased to be able to provide this additional reward to our associates."
Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) writes in Washington Examiner that “tax reform has placed us on the right course to keep our already booming economy humming at a good clip and sets the trajectory for even more significant growth in the future.” Furthermore, tax reform’s effects will be long-term, not a quick-hit stimulus. “Corporations, small businesses, and consumers knew most of the likely provisions of the tax package long before the bill reached the President’s desk. They liked what they saw, and they made investment and spending decisions based on their accurate prediction of what the future would bring,” Rep. Biggs explains.
Betsy McCaughey writes in the New York Post that “last Thursday the Trump administration came to the rescue of pro-life nurses and doctors who accuse hospital employers of pressuring them to perform abortions, in violation of their faith.” President Trump’s new policy protects the First Amendment right of “doctors and nurses . . . to practice medicine according to their conscience,” McCaughey explains.
“Since Attorney General Jeff Sessions was confirmed to head the Department of Justice (DOJ) nearly one year ago, he has been making an impact,” Carrie Severino writes in National Review. Under his leadership, “this DOJ has shown that its dedication to the rule of law extends to the direct protection of individual rights.”
