Nancy Pelosi is now mocking the companies who are handing out wage increases and bonuses to employees after the passing of President Trump’s historic and successful tax reform bill.
When commenting on the GREAT news for American workers, Pelosi said the wage hikes and bonuses were just “crumbs.”
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said the bonuses being handed out to workers by businesses across the country following the passing of the Republican tax act are mere “crumbs.”
Walmart on Thursday joined a growing list of companies who have decided to share the tax cut savings with employees, announcing a plan to boost pay and give bonuses worth up to $1,000 to workers. Walmart — the nation’s largest employer — pointed to the new tax cut legislation as the reason for the move.
“In terms of the bonus that corporate America receives versus the crumbs they are giving to workers to put the schmooze on is so pathetic. It’s so pathetic,” Pelosi said during a press briefing on Thursday.
“I would hope that with their big advantage of bringing money home at a very low rate that they would invest in infrastructure and things, but our experience has been that they will do dividends, do stock buybacks and things like that,” she continued. “I think it’s insignificant.”
