McCormick to use some tax savings to pay out bonuses, raise wages
MarketWatch reports that McCormick & Co. Inc. “will use ‘a portion’ of the savings from recent tax legislation to pay out $1,000 bonuses in May to eligible U.S. hourly employees.” Tomi Kilgore writes that “the spices and seasoning mixes company said it would also accelerate wage increases for hourly employees.”
In the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Assistant Health and Human Services Secretary Elinore F. McCance-Katz writes “with his announcement last week of a bold initiative to address the epidemic of opioid abuse, addiction and overdose in the United States, President Donald Trump has brought a new level of urgency to the fight.” McCance-Katz explains that President Trump “has given us a new sense of urgency to assure that Americans living with serious mental and substance-use disorders get effective, scientifically sound, evidence-based care.”
In the Washington Examiner, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos writes that “last month, when 17 innocent children and adults were massacred in Parkland, Fla., President Trump delivered a forceful response: The failures to confront school violence in America over the past 40 years end now.” Secretary DeVos adds that President Trump and his entire Administration “are committed to making America safe by implementing evidence-based measures that will help improve mental health, prevent crime, and keep violent behavior out of our schools and communities.”
“President Donald Trump wrote Tuesday on Twitter that he is ‘very pleased’ that his administration will host a temporary memorial to victims of opioid abuse next month on the Ellipse just outside the White House,” Louis Nelson writes in Politico. “Trump has put combating opioid abuse at the center of his domestic agenda, traveling to New Hampshire — a state especially hard-hit by opioid abuse — earlier this month and announcing a set of administration proposals for combating addiction,” Nelson adds.
