Trumpian Nightmare! Fiat-Chrysler Hands Out 2,000 Dollar Bonuses Post Tax Bill

America is crumbling. The end is near. The apocalypse is upon us, except that it’s not. For weeks, Democrats said the GOP tax bill was the worst in history, even worse that the Missouri Compromise or prohibition. Except that it wasn’t. Since President Trump signed the tax bill into law on December 22, scores of workers have reaped its benefits. Over 100 companies and over a million workers have received a bonus of at least $1,000, some companies even gave part-timers a $500 check. U.S. investments from these companies were increased, as was their charitable donations. From airlines to the Olive Garden, companies gave their workers a much-welcomed Christmas present. Additionally, entities have decided to increase their wages as well. Walmart and Capital One announced that they would boost workers wages. Oh, and Walmart will give $5,000 to workers who adopt.

The economy is growing near four percent. Consumer confidence is at a near two-decade high. Unemployment is at record lows. The Dow Jones had a 5,000-point surge in 2017, the greatest increase in its history, and blew past 25,000 last month upon a private sector jobs report that showed 250,000 new opportunities were created for the month. The economy is booming, and now Fiat Chrysler is announcing that they will be doling out $2,000 bonuses to its workers. They will also be investing $1 billion in a Michigan plant (via CNBC):

CEO Sergio Marchionne said in a statement that these announcements reflect the company’s ongoing commitment to manufacturing in the U.S. He also cited the recently signed tax bill as an opportunity to share the savings with Fiat Chrysler employees.

The automaker said it will invest more than $1 billion in a Michigan plant and relocate production of its Ram Heavy Duty truck in 2020. That model is currently being produced in Saltillo, Mexico.

Fiat Chrysler said this decision would create about 2,500 jobs in addition to the ones that have been previously announced.

The company said it will also pay 60,000 of its U.S. employees bonuses of $2,000 each. Fiat Chrysler said these bonuses would not include senior leadership.

  1. Remember hard core Democrats you must resist everything Trump does and everything that happens under the Trump administration. So refuse these bonuses & raises, don’t apply for the great jobs coming back from Mexico and other foreign countries, stay away from the increased job growth opportunities, ignore the record setting stock market growth that’s making retirement look a little better and most of all keep paying more on your federal taxes. OR MAYBE, just maybe start thinking for yourselves, instead of how the clueless movie stars, puppet ignorant talk show hosts and the fake news (actually opinion only) medias tell you to think and say to your self, “You know this isn’t half bad what that Trump guy is doing.” God bless us all.

  2. THE SKY IS FALLING, THE SKY IS FALLING, DONALD TRUMP WAS ELECTED, OUR PLAY HOUSE IS OVER, NOW WE HAVE TO DO SOMETHING, INSTEAD OF TAKING GRAFT, TAKING SOCIAL SECURITY OUT OF THE SAVINGS AND GIVING IT TO PEOPLE THAT NEVER PAID A DIME IN. MY WIFE WORKED 27 YEARS AND HER SS CHECK IS 500 A MONTH, AFTER INSURANCE SHE HAS NOTHING. SHE HAS NOT HAD AN INCREASE THAT DID NOT GO TO INSURANCE INCREASE IN THE LAST 5 YEARS. THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG ABOUT THE PITCURE, DONT YOU THINK.

    ANY PERSON THAT DOES NOT GET ON BOARD WITH TRUMP AND HELP HIM STRAIGHTEN THIS MESS OUT, SHOULD BE RECALLED IMMEDIATELY.

    • Right, Walter.

      And because I have a public service pension from the City of Chicago, my SS benefits went from $753.00 a month to $310.00 a month once I went on pension. Cut about 60%.

      And because the city was so slow in getting my retirement letter to me so I could inform Social Security I was retiring, I have to pay back the benefits I was getting during that time. So now, I’m only getting $255.00 per month for 3 years until they are paid back.

      And also, since the City of Chicago will no longer subsidize retirees medical benefits in violation of state law, that’s another $500.00 deducted right out of my pension check for my wife and I. The fight to get it back has been going on for several years.

      So I just wanted to chime in and let you know that I know how you feel.

  3. YOU KNOW FOLKS, IT MAY BE TIME THE ARMY CAME IN AND TOOK OVER THE GOVERNMENT AND RUN ALL THE REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS OUT OF WASHINGTON, IT SEEMS THIS IS THE ONLY WAY THE MESS THERE WILL BE STRAIGHTENED OUT AND WHILE THEY ARE AT IT TAKE OVER THE NEWS MEDIA, MOST OF THEM SEEM TO BE TAKEN OVER WITH RADICALS TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTRY. IT COULD NOT BE MUCH WORSE. I WOULD BE FOR THIS IF IT WOULD ASSURE DONALD TRUMP WOULD BE IN CHARGE. I AM TIRED OF THE LYING, TWISTING OF TRUTH, BUNCH OF CROOKS IN WASHINGTON, ALL THEY ARE INTERESTED IN, IS FILLING THEIR POCKETS. IT IS TIME FOR A REALITY CHECK, FIND OUT WHERE THEIR RICHES CAME FROM.

    • You have a good thought however we can’t allow the military to do that. On the other hand if you read the 2nd amendment the state Guard can, per 2nd amendment. What we are seeing happening right now is why the 2nd amendment was written. Enemy’s within.

  4. Just don’t give it to the engineers who designed the electronics in the Cherokee. The start/stop feature shut the engine off just as I let off the brake. Since it was down hill, the car rolled slowly into traffic. It took several seconds for the car to make power. The cross traffic had to slam on the brakes to keep from hitting me.

    FIAT ENGINEERS DO NOT DESERVE A BONUS. They deserve jail time. Someday they will kill or injur someone. Of course the layers will blame the driver, even Fiat engineers took away control from the driver.

  5. AMAZING WHAT TRUMPH HAS DONE FOR THIS COUNTRY IN ONE YEAR
    THE DEMOCRATS ARE COOKED AND THEY KNOW IT
    HE IS DRAINING THE SWAMP
    GOD BLESS HIM

  6. To bad the main stream media can’t report this instead of all the other BS they report trying to smear Trump for what ever reason they can. It is amazing some of the crap they spin on a daily basis. When are they going to ask the average working American what they think instead of listening to the Dems negativity.

  7. Democrats, please be honest with yourselves. You only come out of your rat hole when there is a self-benefit to be had.
