Default Trump gave me $1000 last Friday!

Company I work for gave all of its workers a $1000 one time bonus! We have like 35k to 40k employees so it was big money. Iím also getting an extra $57 a week in my check!


Thank you President Trump!

I have seen a small bump too. But like my tax lady says, just more to tax you on.

My wife's company just forked out over 10 million in bonuses to all employees, so all together Trump has given me 6K in bonus money this year! I have never seen this before so I guess Trump is not all Bad LoL!

Very nice! Who can't get excited about ANY amount of money that is back in your pocket vs being with Uncle Sam? I would like to think this would be a bi-partisan feeling, but sadly it is not. Another opportunity for the left to look silly!

I told my liberal coworker that he should have to give his extra amount to everyone that voted for Trump! I am not a giant Trump fan but I did vote for him and appreciate having some extra cash. Others will complain and then gladly take their extra pay... shame shame

Right on man. I wish my company did the same. USAA here in San Antonio gave a 16% raise and $1k bonus across the board because of the tax cuts.

WalMart bragged about giving their employees a bonus and a raise but didn't mention that fact that they were cutting their hours. Give a little here but take more back there!

Iíve been with the same company for 16 years and the max I have got was 4%. I actually took a promotion and took a 28% pay decrease. With the 28% decrease I went from working 38 HRs Monday- Thursday to working 55 HRs Monday-Friday.

You earned it.

And the reduced taxes - it was your money to start with.

The mission has been accomplished when we get excited about receiving money that originally belonged to us, taken from us with little to no permission.

It would be like the thief we all want to kill coming and saying hey here is your stolen truck back, and we jump for joy, shake his hand tell him thank you instead of kicking him in the shins

My advice which isn't worth much..... quit that job and tell them to do it theirselves. Go find another job where they will respect you and pay better.

$57/week is an extra $3,000/yr in your pocket. That's going in the right direction. Do away with income tax and property taxes and increase sales tax slightly. Then everyone pays their way.
