Only full time employees got bonuses:

Less than two years: $200 bonus
Two to four years: $250 bonus
Five to nine years: $300 bonus
10 to 14 years: $400 bonus
15 to 19 years: $750 bonus
20+ years: $1,000 bonus

I also remember when every job to be had for a young person or unemployed person was partime counter help.
I also remember a very popular HR policy accross every company in America was to make damn sure the company didn't give any one employee over 17 hours or they would have to buy Obamacare for the employee. I also remember companies not giving more 35 hours to hourly employees because the Obama admin considered anything over 35 hours fulltime and the companies would have to pay over time on the other 5 hours.

It was really hell under Obama. Can you imagine those 10's of thousands of employees that just started last year at Home Depot when Trump got elected. They are getting a $200 bonus on top of getting better wages, and more hours they ever saw under Obama.

Yep. Before Obamacare the ~80 person company I work for offered great coverage in a group policy. If an employee already had coverage, such a ex-military with Tricare Prime, the company would pay the annual premiums. When Obamacare kicked in, the coverage price went way up along with deductibles. Also, Obamacare stopped the company from paying for outside policies such as Tricare. The cost of insurance increased so much that the company did the "no more than 29 hours" bit for many employees.

I am sure that many other small to mid size companies had the same experience. This Obamacare, along with the immigration issue, is likely why Trump carried nearly every county in the country outside of the illegals/welfare/limo-lib concentrated areas.

This is not discussion of Obama's policies. We all agree on ObamaCare's failure.

Now, why are we putting 10K per worker of additional government debt and only getting $200 in bonuses?

Or are you guys will be the same as with Bush and only admit his failures 5 years after the fact?

Bullshit, so stop funding trangender queer perversions, stop printing up Liberal filth to forcefeed our kids in school.

You Liberals Get NOTHING! There will be no more smut printed up at tax payers expense, while people piss and moan about how we'll go in debt if they cut taxes.

Trump did good, only a Liberal with proclivity to lose doesn't think so. Keep on the Russian narrative. Crumbs is crumbs.

So how much is that in comparison to additional 10K per worker in debt?

IT would be interesting to chart the progression of some forum members rants over the years.

Is it getting more extreme even now that they have their messiah in power ? Or is it me.

Well, I am not getting the huge corporate tax cut gift that Home Depot got. Instead I am paying for that crap.

I bet most of the announced bonuses get paid out going into the elections. Just coincidence of course.

The average taxpayer benefits from the Trump tax cuts. Everyone benefits from a better economy the tax cuts bring about.

I've seen this movie before under Bush and look where we ended up. March deficit was 20B wider than projected, so my guess this tax cut will end up costing closer to 3T total vs 1.5T advertised assuming there is no big recession. What do you think will happen to debt/GDP ration once we hit a recession sometime in the next ten years?

How come Liberals forget math when Liberals are in charge?

I'm just staying with the Liberal curve. They keep going where no one should go. But they do.

What else is necessary. You're just whining. Start your own damn company then you can say something.
