    Thanks for any replies.
    Walmart to raise its starting wage to $11, give some employees bonuses following tax bill passage



    •Walmart is increasing its starting wage rate for hourly employees in the U.S. to $11, following the passage of new tax legislation.
    •The company said it will also expand maternity and parental leave benefits, and provide a one-time cash bonus for eligible employees of as much as $1,000.
    •Walmart said it's still accessing other "potential additional investments" that could come after the new tax laws.

    More chum.

    Walmart (WMT), the nation’s largest employer, will let over a million of its employees share in the benefits of the largest sweeping tax reform in three decades.

    The retailer is boosting starting hourly wages to $11 an hour. Additionally, the retailer will give one-time $1,000 bonus payments to workers, depending on length of service at the company. It is also extending maternity and parental benefits. The changes take place in February.

    The bonus goes to employees that have been with the company for over 20 years.

    They did give a similar raise previously without a tax bill. But hey, credit where credit is due. Would this be happening without a low unemployment rate?
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    No way of knowing.
    But this is just another example of a whole slew of announcements.

    Corporations don't pay taxes. Employees, shareholders and customers pay taxes.
